A Date With Darkness Podcast


Oct 6, 2017

A Date With Darkness Podcast is hosted by Dr. Natalie Jones PsyD, a prison psychologist and a licensed psychotherapist with a private practice in Oakland, CA. In this podcast, Dr. Jones has an intimate discussion about the effects of being in abusive and hurtful relationships with narcissists.

In honor of National Domestic Violence Month, I am joined today by Camille McDaniel, LPCC  for a passionate discussion about spiritual abuse. Camille is a Christian counselor in Georgia who specializes in helping those who have been spiritually traumatized. She educates us about spiritual abuse, which includes being hurt and manipulated under the guise of being accepted or faithful to your religious or spiritual beliefs. She and I have a candid discussion on the types of spiritual abuse, the effect that spiritual abuse has on a person, being manipulated by God and religious teachings, being shunned by your spiritual community for not being faithful to the religion, whether you can still be "good enough in the eyes of God if you leave your abusive partner," as well as well as if we should refuse other help to "just pray about it."
