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.
