Moringa Publishing is an educational social work research service that aims to make the world a safer place for all. Our goal is to contribute to the public good by raising awareness of important public health issues using a social justice lens. We believe that comfort, healing and renewal comes through truth, knowledge and good education.
Counseling and coaching. Are you experiencing any of the following? I can help you! When it comes to coaching/counseling, I definitely have a niche. I am certified and specialize in caring for:
- Women with betrayal trauma.
- Men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 with social phobia (i.e., social anxiety disorder).
- Men, women and youth experiencing mistreatment or spiritual/psychological abuse from unsafe spiritual groups/religious establishments, cults or hyper-authoritarian religious leaders; Individuals with trauma who are recovering from cult abuse (isolation strategies, mandated shunning techniques, etc.).
- Women and children to help them understand and recognize narcissistic abuse.
I do help leaders of charitable or religious organizations to promote harmony and wellness. I also help licensed counselors and therapists to understand dynamics of unsafe groups, spiritual abuse, cult tools and cultic abuse so they can better help their clients.
Social work research and psychology research. Do you need content for your books, articles or websites? Since 2012, I have researched and written websites, books and other materials about human rights, public health, psychology, memory science, social work and theology/Christian apologetics. As a counter-cult educator/activist, I specialize in educating about the dangers of cults and coercive-control groups. I create trauma-sensitive, evidence-based educational materials using mixed methods research.
Are you a therapist? I can research some therapy-related topics for you. I also tend to research the following topics: Giftedness in adults and children, empaths and highly sensitive persons (HSP’s), Bowlby’s Attachment Theory, narcissism, and trauma healing. I have access to scientific, academic and scholarly journals as well as other educational publications.
Copywriting, editing and proofreading. Are you a pastor or leader of a religious organization? I can write sermons for your church services. Do you need someone to write a professional bio for you? I enjoy learning about others and have written appealing bios for business executives. I can also proofread your own writings or business communications – regardless of topic – and send the edited version back to you.
My aim is to listen, engage and educate in order to offer care, support, hope and guidance to the oppressed and marginalized. I’m not a government-licensed social worker (please view this page to learn more). I have been thankful to be a part of American Association of Christian Counselors’ growing effort to promote a high standard of excellence and ethics within tax-exempt religious organizations, the mental health community, and government agencies. At AACC and International Board of Christian Care (IBCC), I hold several certifications, including board certified pastoral counselor and board certified mental health coach/first responder. From the University of Michigan School of Social Work, I received advanced training in practice methods, advocacy and social justice frameworks related to social work practice and a Masters Credential in Social Work: Practice, Policy and Research, earning a 4.0 GPA. I am a certified USIDHR Human Rights Consultant and have received trauma training from AACC and the National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine (NICABM).
The moringa tree, also called the drumstick tree, is known for its healing and cleansing properties. Native to India and Africa, it is supposed to help ease depression and provide antioxidant properties. Some natives claim that the tree’s seeds will help to purify polluted water and make it drinkable (of course, please do not test this out). This is symbolic of our mission: To bring comfort, healing, and renewal through education.
“Social work practice [or social work research] is a public trust that requires of its practitioners: integrity, compassion, belief in the dignity and worth of human beings, respect for individual differences, a commitment to service, and a dedication to truth.” – From the NASW News (Feb. 1961), retrieved at the NASW website (January 30, 2017)
