Amy Nordhues is a married mother of three, a sexual abuse survivor and a passionate Christ-follower. She has a BA in Psychology with minors in Sociology and Criminology. Her devotions have been published in The Secret Place (Judson Press). When she isn’t writing, reading or creating photo books, she can be found laughing at her favorite comedians.
She hopes that through her ministry, she can shed a light on the very under-reported issue of therapist/clergy abuse both to offer support to the victim and to aide loved ones so they can better assist the victim with the very arduous process of healing. She also hopes to work towards improving the laws in her state which currently has no legislation regarding therapist abuse. In over half of the states in our country, it is illegal for a therapist to engage in sex with a client. The power differential that exists in any therapeutic relationship makes it impossible for a client to give consent. For this reason, the patient entering therapy must be protected.
