Logo for Where There's Smoke Series on Covert Abuse“As a survivor of incest, I do not diminish the impact of being sexually abused as a child, but I’ve come to realize that the dynamics of covert abuse helped my father to justify and sustain his abuse.

As egregious as the sexual abuse was, it was the cover up — the denying and the recreating of reality, the manipulation of what was into what he wanted us to believe, that inflicted the most harm.”

Discovering, defining and embracing my dream is a major part of my healing journey. Facing and dealing with the impact of covert abuse is the other.
