"Your A.C.E.s don't define you, they are a guide post for healing."
-Ali Astrid Moto

ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES

ACES are experiences before the age of 18 that affect us in a negative way. They cause neural pathways that are maladaptive and cause our threat response to trigger. They can be all kinds of experiences. Everyone has a unique childhood, but  some childhood experiences leave us with similar thoughts, behaviors, and feelings that effect our other experiences in a negative way throughout our lives. Fortunately, the brain is changeable. Knowing what adverse experiences we have been through is just a tool for healing. It is not a dead end. It is in fact the beginning. The beginning to understand yourself, your thinking, and informs your healing.
