Cynthia M Chase, MSW and Reiki Master has been in the healing profession for over 30 years. She is a psychotherapist with extensive experience and training. She attended Hunter College School of Social work and Metropolitan Center for Mental Health in New York City receiving a certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. She trained with Alexander Lowen, founder of Bioenergetics, a mind-body approach to health, and is a Reiki Master in the Usui tradition. She developed an integrative practice called Reiki Fusion which combines psychology, spirituality and energy healing.
She has developed a specialty in understanding and treating people in dysfunctional, abusive and manipulative relationships – based on her personal experiences as well as in the treatment of hundreds of clients who have been exposed to abusers. This blog is an outgrowth of this focus and intends to enlighten and hopefully free both the victim and abuser. With knowledge comes the potential for different choices and true empowerment.
