Teresa

Teresa Pitt Green is a practicing Catholic and founding member of the Survivor Fellowship in the Diocese of Arlington. She was abused by a series of priests during her youth and teen years.

Teresa focuses on integrating faith into recovering from abuse or trauma. Some articles and brief online webinars are found at TeresaGreen.org.

For ten years Teresa served on a diocesan advisory board for implementing child protection and survivor outreach. She continues to provide workshops and retreats for survivors, for loved ones who carry secondary trauma, and for priests, deacons, nuns and others supporting survivors and their families.

Her volunteer work reaches out to other survivor support groups, including the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Initiative. Her audiences have included many ministries within the diocese of Arlington, judges and lawyers groups, therapeutic care groups, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops annual child protection conference and Saint Luke’s Institute.

Teresa owns her own small business.
