Healing Emotionally Abused Lives

The path to wholeness

A Connecticut-based organization providing validation, emotional safety and resources to those who have experienced trauma and abuse of any kind, particularly emotional abuse and violation. HEAL is also dedicated to reframing and expanding individual's and social understanding of family abuse and violence.

Mission Statement

HEAL's mission is to provide understanding, support and a circle of absolute safety to those who have endured and are trying to recover from emotional abuse, as well as those who have been the victims of any kind of abuse and trauma that results in ongoing emotional consequences.

HEAL also envisions expanding the conventional perspective of domestic and family violence to include a more comprehensive understanding of emotional abuse. HEAL hopes this reframing will bring significant changes within educational and faith-based settings, clinical interventions, and ultimately legal statutes, once and for all putting to rest the injurious childhood rhyme that suggests: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never harm me.
