Join a supportive, non-judgmental space with other former cult members.  Process your experience  safely with individuals who understand and can validate your story and history.  Learn about the dynamics of coercive control, undue influence, systems of control, mechanisms of manipulation, and thought-reform techniques so you can understand your experience and safeguard yourself from future exploitation.

Consultation, Supervision, Training


I contract with local agencies to provide client case consultation, clinical supervision, trainings related to juvenile firesetting and sexually harmful behavior, and consultation and training around organizational culture and climate.

Mental Health Evaluations


I am available to provide comprehensive mental health evaluations and juvenile risk assessments in fire setting and sexually harmful behavior for local agencies, including courts, district attorneys, and police and fire service entities that do not provide such services.
