Dr. Falconer provides psychotherapy and consultation services for
individuals and their families who are dealing with the effects of coercive
control, cultic abuse, and complex trauma. She completed her MSW at
Columbia University in New York, and her PhD in Psychology, which

University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. She also
completed post-graduate study in the psychology of coercive control at

Dr. Falconer’s therapeutic practice is considerate of the unique challenges and concerns for individuals who are navigating experiences with cultic influence and coercive control. Her approach is primarily psychodynamic and eclectic, and informed by her background in trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, internal family systems, and
somatic therapies.
