About This Website
I am a psychologist who has been profoundly touched by victims of ritual abuse and mind control whom I have treated in therapy or befriended as an advocate. I feel compelled to increase public support for these children and adult survivors. This is my mission.
Let the truth be known!
This site will provide articles by myself and others, references to other resources, and links to information and support on the world-wide web. Advocates for victims of ritual abuse are frequent targets of malicious attack. Therefore, I cannot and do not endorse opinions provided or referred to on this site other than my own.
I am grateful to Reverend Lynn James, LMHC, for allowing me to post to my website her carefully-thought-out ideas about how extreme abuse can occur in a world with a loving God. Click above.

I have two new pages on my website.
The first is an article based on a presentation by Arauna Morgan, MA, which was given at the May 2013 Survivorship Conference in Oakland California. Arauna Morgan is a trusted colleague, in the process of becoming a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a survivor of ritual abuse and mind control.
The article is entitled: Seeing and Breaking the Chains: Steps for Recognizing On-Going Abuse and How to Break FREE, located here:
The second is a page in recognition of survivor advocate Neil Brick. Read it here: http://endritualabuse.org/activism/in-recognition-of-neil-brick/
This new page on my website seeks to expose a number of common forms of misinformation and tactics of disinformation about psychotherapy for trauma originating in ritual abuse and mind control. Disinformation is distinguished from misinformation in that it is intentionally fraudulent.
The article is entitled:
“Common Forms of Misinformation and Tactics of Disinformation about Psychotherapy for Trauma Originating in Ritual Abuse and Mind Control”.
Read it here: http://endritualabuse.org/activism/misinfo/
