I wrote and produced Transference, a psychological drama/horror film about my journey of healing and recovery from sexual abuse, after 13 years of deep psychological work, analysis, trauma therapy, psychics, gurus, healers and self-improvement courses, including the NXIVM 16-day program. I say “recovery” because the journey required me to dig deep within my psyche to retrieve and integrate the girl I had to abandon when I lost my innocence.
My journey to overcome childhood sexual trauma began when my youngest child was two, the same age I was when my mother abandoned me and the abuse started. I was abused several times by an older cousin at two and subsequently by a male babysitter at the age of four. The horror of childhood sexual abuse haunts its victims for years until we face down the “demons” of our past.
