Gender Female
Occupation Retired, Licensed Psychotherapist
Location Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Introduction After twenty years of private practice as a licensed therapist, Bonnie Zieman is recently retired. As a retiree, she has turned her attention to acrylic painting, digital art, authoring two art-related blogs, and now, writing a book. As both a therapist and a one-time Jehovah's Witness (born-in, pioneer, special pioneer, elder's wife) Bonnie realized she had a lot of professional and personal knowledge, skills and experience she could offer to other Jehovah's Witnesses wanting to exit the cult, or ex-Jehovah's Witnesses already 'out' but still recovering from being in such a high-control environment. Bonnie is the author of the recently published, "EXiting the JW Cult: A Healing Handbook", and is now working on a book of her memoirs about being a member of, fading out of, and recovering from, being caught in this destructive cult. (You may know Bonnie by the name "Stillness Suite" on Facebook.)
