Ep 1: Erik Schlimmer, UAP Therapist
On the very first episode, I’ll be talking to Erik Schlimmer, a certified therapist who only a year ago didn’t believe in UAPs.
But following the Pentagon’s stunning report delivered to Congress in June of last year confirming that UAPs are real, Erik began his own trip down the rabbit hole. Now he hopes to leverage his expertise to offer support to experiencers of the phenomenon who need help processing trauma and navigating the stigma surrounding their encounter.
In our conversation we talk about the challenges that experiencers face in being taken seriously by mental health professionals, the weaponized stigma surrounding the UFO phenomenon, how disclosure could impact mental health, and more.
