Meet Our Therapists
(and see the songs they pick which reflect their personalities)
Trudy Soncrant MSW, LCSW, LISAC
Hi I’m Trudy Soncrant and the owner of Broken Chains Christian Counseling. As a therapist, I use my expertise with a non-judgmental Christian approach. I have seen addictions destroy lives, families, and relationships, and when this happens because the entire family needs healing, everyone can be included in therapy. My belief is “Life in itself is a Spiritual Battle between good and evil”, as I describe myself as an “Evil Fighter”.
