Kimberly DeCelle (Ph.D. student)


Kim DeCelle received her MSW at the University of Georgia and her MDiv from the Princeton Theological Seminary. She is returned to the classroom after almost a decade of psychotherapy practice, working several years with juvenile sex offenders in a residential treatment setting before joining practice at a community mental health clinic in Athens, GA. Her research interests include trauma treatments and interventions, non-traditional families, stigma, and cults. Kim has also trained in a seminary setting, and has an interest in larger questions of human suffering, and collective responses to pain and suffering in the world. She has a love of lifelong learning, and came back to school to think creatively about challenges she encountered while in the world of clinical practice. A native of Ohio, she moved to Columbia, along with her husband Mike, to start the PhD program. Kim loves animals, especially giant breed dogs, and shares her home with a large English Mastiff named King.
