Tina Swithin survived a Category Five Divorce Hurricane and took shelter by writing her first book titled, “Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom’s Battle.” Tina finished her second book, “Divorcing a Narcissist: Advice for the Battlefield” in 2013 which provides guidance and advice for those in the trenches of a high-conflict divorce. In 2015, Tina shared her advice for for rebuilding after narcissistic abuse in her third book, “Rebuilding After the Storm,” and most recently, her favorite book to date, “The Narc Decoder: Understanding the Language of the Narcissist.”
Tina has chosen to assume the title of survivor versus victim and has become an advocate for change in the Family Court System after seeing the flaws first-hand. Tina believes that the courts have lost sight of their primary focus, which should be the best interest of the child and instead, are focusing too heavily on mothers’ rights and fathers’ rights. Tina is working to raise awareness of the issues in the Family Court System and to educate the general public on Narcissistic Personality Disorder and other Cluster B personality disorders. High conflict divorces are on the rise and the children are suffering unnecessarily due to the lack of education on the front lines–and behind the judicial bench.
In addition to being an Author, Tina provides consulting services to those enduring high-conflict custody battles and holds annual retreats in San Luis Obispo County. She runs a private forum called, “The Lemonade Club” for those in the trenches of custody battles. Tina has been awarded honors such as the “Top 20 Professionals Under 40” and the “Top 40 Professionals Under 40” in several regional California newspapers. Tina has appeared on shows such as “Dr. Carole’s Couch” with world-renown psychologist, Dr. Carole Lieberman, Huff Post LIVE, and on Candace Smyth’s North Star Series. Tina’s book and blog have been featured in outlets such as Glamour Magazine, SF Gate, Examiner, LA Parent Magazine, About.com, Yahoo, Huffington Post and the Washington Times. All of her books have garnered 5-star reviews on Amazon. In her spare time, Tina writes for the Huffington Post Divorce where she delves into the tricky world of divorcing a narcissist.
