I’m a certified recovery coach and I’m passionate about helping people heal after narcissistic abuse. Looking around I noticed that when any person experiences exploitation and oppression, it invariably causes suffering within families and communities. With this understanding, I launched a social impact action and called it Narcissistic Abuse Rehab in 2019. The same year, I published my first book Are You In An Emotionally Abusive Relationship: A Guide To Help You Assess The Health of Your Relationship and Self-Reflect.

I’m passionate about using technology to make complex legal information more accessible. That’s why I created the world’s first online global Coercive Control Legislation Database in 2020. My goal was simple: to track the evolving landscape of coercive control laws around the world and provide people everywhere with easy access to crucial legal information. This resource stands as a testament to my belief that knowledge is power and that everyone deserves to understand the laws that affect their lives. By bringing this information online, I hope to empower individuals with the knowledge they need to navigate their legal rights and make informed decisions.

My mission started as a dream to help people suffering from the effects of abusive power and control who often face financial challenges. Furthermore, I wanted to reach people who could not afford therapy or other interventions. Through my research and experience, I developed a trauma-informed coaching modality that consisting of three distinct phases: awareness, empowerment, and healing. It remains the cornerstone of my work today.

The more people I helped, the more I realized how vital it was to create content for those whose voices and experiences are erased from prevailing narratives. I published the first episode of The Narcissistic Abuse Rehab Podcast in 2020. I wanted to go a step further than telling survivors that they were not alone, I wanted to show them. All aspects of my mission was made possible through the immense generosity of a phenomenal sponsor. With their support, I was able to do the unthinkable for a regular person and provide over 1000 hours of free coaching until 2021.

Within the academic community, the research-based articles I wrote to educate survivors made an impact. The books ‘The Psychosocial Impacts of Whistleblower Retaliation: Shattering Employee Resilience and The Workplace Promise,’ by Jacqueline Garret and Martina Buck, as well as ‘The Emotionally Abusive Parent: Its Effects and How to Overcome Them in Christ’ by Dr. Anne Dryburgh reference our content. The study Frequency, Method, Intensity, and Health Sequelae of Sexual Choking Among US Undergraduate and Graduate Students cites also cite my work.

Narcissistic Abuse Rehab was a service created to support the disenfranchised. Incredibly, it has earned recognition over the years, appearing in esteemed publications such as Elle, Cosmopolitan, Newsweek, Huffington Post, Her Norm, Parade and many others.

In 2021, we lost our phenomenal sponsor under tragic circumstances and it was no longer feasible for me to provide the unlimited free coaching service that was part of my dream. However, I still sponsor coaching when I am able. To finance my research and creation of free tools for survivors, my narcissistic abuse recovery coaching is now a very affordable paid service. Nevertheless, my mission remains unchanged: to restore the human dignity of every person I work with, empowering them to unlock their full potential and make meaningful contributions both within their homes and to society at large.
