Hello to my new friends at Womansavers!
I am Sandra L. Brown, M.A., a professional psychotherapist who has come aboard to offer a forum here on Womansavers. I hope you will feel comfortable enough to stop by, put your feet up, and chat a while.
First, I will tell you a little about me and then I hope you will come by the Forum and tell me about you! I have been a psychotherapist for 18 years. I previously ran a counseling center for women with chronic histories of victimization. Later, I began working with male perpetrators. This combined history of working with female victims and male perpetrators led me to write 'How to Spot a Dangerous Man Before You Get Involved' and began my newest agency "Safe Relationships" . Today, I help women achieve relational harm reduction and work towards public psychopathy education. The Dangerous Man book helps women spot the 8 types of permanently disordered, and therefore, dangerous men. And the Dangerous Man workbook helps women identify their personalized patterns of selection. So currently, my work involves helping women understand dangerous relationships and gather insight about their selections.
While here at the Forum, feel free to leave questions. I will check the board often and will answer your questions within a week. If you feel your questions are too personal for the Forum or you feel it unsafe to expose your question on the Forum, feel free to email through my website listed above or leave an anonymous in-house email message here for me at WomanSavers (accessed on home page left side). I also offer private phone counseling for women who have immediate needs.
Any information given on this Forum is strictly for educational purposes and discussion. Your long term mental health needs should be evaluated by a professional in your area.
Here at the Forum we can talk about the breadth of relationships, healthy ones and the dangerous ones! We can talk about how our histories have sometimes 'set us up' for the bad relationship choices we have made. We can chat about our healthier futures, ways of achieving a more balanced relationship, and any other relational topics you'd like to discuss! So jump right in--and tell me about you! Sandra L. Brown, M.A.
