Welcome back to Therapy Chat! In today's episode, host Laura Reagan, speaks to Casey Hersch about living with chronic illness. 

Casey Hersch is a licensed clinical social worker, consultant, author, ballroom dancer, and founder of She specializes in integrative treatment models for chronic illness. She has enhanced her understanding of healing through her studies of holistic treatment modalities. Her own struggles with autoimmune illness (Crohn's disease) and trauma inspire her to help others connect the dots of their own lives and to embrace the many dimension of healing. She is passionate about empowering others to be experts in their own bodies. She has published articles for Social Work Today, The New Social Worker, Taste for Life, and to name a few. Pet companionship, music, dancing, and relationships are at the heart of her healing, and she emphasizes there is not a "one size fits all" approach to health.
