Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents
When I read the wonderful book, “Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents” by Lindsay GIbson, I realized how relevant this book was to many of my clients and the challenges they have faced with their families of origin. I recommend this book to anyone who may have experienced growing up with an emotionally immature, unavailable or selfish parent. Or for individuals who’s emotional needs were not met, feelings were dismissed or who had to take on adult levels of responsibility as children. This book is a wonderful resource that offers clear validation and tools for coping, as individuals may continue to experience these challenging and destructive dynamics with family members as adults. I really enjoy working with individuals in therapy who have these kinds of experiences in their family relationships. I am passionate about helping individuals uncover their true nature that is separate from family upbringing, to develop new tools for responding to emotionally immature behaviors, to gain confidence in setting boundaries and in helping individuals avoid hurt and disappointment in their relationships with family members. I am passionate about helping individuals create positive, healthy relationships in their lives with others so that they can feel empowered to have relationships that are mutually fulfilling and connected.
