Healthy Counselor: Avoiding Physical, Mental Abuse

Sponsored by United Planners Financial Services

Our experiences in childhood can have a major impact on the way we live our lives into adulthood. But after meeting Mark Nichols, you would never have guessed the trauma he experienced growing up, which he describes as “incontrovertible.”

In this episode, Diana Britton joins Nichols, Arbor Digital’s Director of Product, who opens up about being subjected to sexual and mental abuse by people she was supposed to see and believe. For much of his childhood, he lived in an all-female household, so he has struggled with traditional definitions of masculinity in an industry that is still male dominated.

Yet he emerged a strong figure from those experiences, and also became somewhat of an advocate for mental health and healing in the financial services industry.
