Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years experience with a focus on chronic health issues, grief, trauma, spiritual and religious abuse.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Madison, CT
I specialize in those who have experienced religious and or spiritual abuse or have left a high control group or cult.
From 1999-2018 I worked as a social worker in each segment of the health and mental health care system; hospitals, homecare, short term rehab, long term care, hospice, community mental health, inpatient psychiatric care, and other settings providing case management, counseling, therapy and other services to those in need. I also live with a number of chronic health conditions and am involved with the Ehlers Danlos society, Spinal Leak Foundation and Dysautonomia International.
I have training in EMDR, IFS and certification in Somatic Strategies and have attended numerous trainings in trauma informed psychotherapy as well as ongoing supervision in trauma work.
I am a member of the international cultic studies association and have studied the subject extensively as well as attending regular trainings on spiritual abuse and religious trauma. I also have lived experience as a survivor of both.
