Real-life scenarios and practical, professional advice for adult children of immigrants on talking to our parents about stuff that’s taboo to them.
Ele’s parents have always been really supportive. When she and her husband lost their home during the recession, her parents took them and their kids in. Ele was grateful, but at times overwhelmed by their eagerness to help. Then, Dr. Maritza Mikolich, a family therapist, shares strategies for talking to parents about how best to really help us.
Our expert, Dr. Maritza Mikolich, is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a doctoral degree of psychology and a specialty in EMDR. Learn more about her work here.
