“As far as my own relationship with my parents. And so many things that, came to light when I got older, when I was putting the pieces of the puzzle of my situation together because it's so important, you have to go back and do the inner work. You have to look at your own family dynamics and try to make sense of what made you a target for a situation.” - Dr. Mani Hill Foderaro
