Genetic information can reveal family secrets and cause a multitude of responses, commonly causing an identity disruption which affects the entire family. These experiences are referred to as NPE (Non-parental event or not parent expected) or MPE (Misattributed Parentage Experience). MPE includes late discovery adoptees, donor conceived individuals and a variety of unique conceptions. My distinct lens can help you integrate the truth and heal from the betrayal, shame and identity disruption which often accompany these occurrences.
I use genealogy to better understand family dynamics, patterns, resilience and traumas. Understanding your family tree allows you to be better equipped to address the traumas that get passed down by family behaviors, culture and biology. You can also gain a greater understanding of your families struggles, successes and unique history that can contribute to your sense of self. This can be helpful for anyone who is disconnected from their family of origin.
