I have a lot of information about “X” group, do you want it?
Send me a message with the name and type of cult and the kind of information you have, and I will let you know if I’m interested.
Do you do interventions?
No. I will work with families or friends to get a sense of the situation. Then I will decide if I can be of any help, either with advice or referrals.
Are you a therapist?
No. I have a Ph.D. in Sociology/Social Psychology and am a Professor Emerita of Sociology (retired with honors). I have been working in this field for 30+ years and do educational consulting related to cults, extremism, and coercion.
Do you do individual consultations?
Yes. I begin with a 30-minute assessment at no charge. Then if we both agree to continue, I work on an hourly fee basis, either on phone or by Zoom or Skype. For more information, see Consulting Services.
Do you have or know of a support group?
I am not leading any support groups at the moment. However, I co-lead Recovery Learning Series on a variety of topics via an organization I co-founded: Take Back Your Life Recovery, LLC. Email Take Back Your Life for more information.
