Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse has been at pandemic proportions long before global events made the word commonplace. Untreated interpersonal trauma can wreck havoc on a person's sense of self and ability to live an authentic and fulfilling life. I have worked with countless women and men who have abuse histories and helped them find a path through the pain.

— Jeanine Moreland, Clinical Psychologist in Chicago, IL

Much of my passion lays in helping people who have experienced abuse reclaim their lives, feel fulfilled, and regain a positive outlook on the experiences that are yet to come. I have helped people who have suffered from incest, verbal, physical, mental, financial and sexual abuse process what they have been through and learn how to overcome the trauma that comes with abuse. I've also lead women's groups dealing specifically with abuse and seen how abuse can lead to substance use and addiction.
