As a former cult member, I help people and their families who have been "unduly influenced." I am committed to helping people reclaim their personal power. I wrote Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults and Beliefs (2013), a 30th-anniversary edition of Combating Cult Mind Control (2018) and The Cult of Trump (2019). I help people from all over the world who have found that mental health professionals unless they are specialized in treating cult members, are at best a waste of time and resources, and worse, do further harm. A large part of my practice is short term work with former members.

Have you perhaps done therapy but are now looking to find more inner peace and balance in your life, and more clarity about the possibilities for your future joy and serenity? My decades of clinical experience, advanced training in trauma work, and my immersion in mindfulness practices allow me to tailor my approach to enable you to realize the life that you have long cherished but feared could never be. It is counterintuitive to lean into pain, but with someone willing to guide you and hold that pain you will be able to find the peace you so richly deserve but has eluded you for so long.

Many of my clients haven't felt heard or understood, and it is a goal of mine to make therapy accessible for all.
