Breakthrough to a Positive Life
Through my own journey of recovery from sibling abuse, I have first hand insight and education about recovery. I have consulted with clients, for over 16 years, who have PTSD, bad relationships, and trauma from childhood. I understand how family, parenting, and intimate relationships are affected. I am a survivor, a national author, and conference presenter, and have made many therapy referrals and conducted coaching sessions. I believe in EMDR therapy because it jumpstarted my own life. I had spent several years in the wrong therapy and received many misdiagnoses. I take great pride in being a part of the healing and recovery process. Based on my educational Master’s from the University of Oregon, study of Neuroscience, being an a National author/trainer on Sibling Abuse and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and also my background of working with clients, my beneficial therapy referrals are designed and tailored made for each client to achieve positive recovery and empowerment.

"For too long, sibling abuse has been a serious problem that has been overlooked and excused as sibling rivalry. I commend Nancy Kilgore's personal story which will help other survivors to uncover their harmful experiences and seek help." Vernon R. Wiehe, PhD, Professor, the College of Social Work, University of Kentucky and author of Working with Child Abuse and Neglect
"This book is a call to action about the effects of sibling abuse and its link to family dysfunction. It's also a book about hope and encouragement, and a message for sibling abuse survivors that they are not alone."
