Stephen Hudson, LCSW, SEP
Stephen has experienced first-hand religious abuse and trauma from Christian organizations and institutions from early childhood. During his 20s and 30s, Stephen attended ex-gay ministry support groups, participated in sexual re-orientation programs, and engaged in reparative therapy counseling. He eventually rejected these anti-gay movements and separated himself from fundamentalism theology. Stephen started attending a Metropolitan Community Church in 2003 and sought understanding of the original Scripture references on homosexuality in the Bible. He now attends a gay-affirming non-denominational Christian church.
Stephen earned his Master of Social Work degree in 2016 and became licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in 2018. He is a certified EMDR clinician and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. He is currently living with his life partner and working for a Community Mental Health Clinic as a mental health/addictions clinician.
Stephen has a genuine passion to help others who have been harmed by the ex-gay movement and religious abuse and trauma. He has a part-time practice to help those impacted. Check out his website at https://stephen-hudson.clientsecure.me
