Trigger warning: We talk about abusive childhood and relationships in this podcast. 


In this episode of Caitlin’s Couch, The Podcast, Caitlin shares a recent Dear Caitlin submission. Anonymous No. 4 shares the story of her past, including an abusive home and abusive partners. She describes her struggles with dating and relationships, and asks: How can I reverse a lifetime of abuse? 


There’s good news and bad news….much more good than bad. The truth is, you can’t reverse a lifetime of abuse. That’s the bad news.


The good news is, you don’t have to. Tune in to Episode 19 of Caitlin’s Couch to hear Caitlin talk about the journey toward healing from a history of trauma.
