Work

I am a writer and advocate for individuals struggling with sociopathic personality disorder.

I identify with individuals who are struggling with antisocial behavior and support the development of treatment for sociopathy through the process of normalizing apathy and bringing awareness to an often greatly misunderstood personality type.

About

Advocate for Psychological Awareness

When I was in my twenties, I was diagnosed with sociopathic personality disorder. Shortly thereafter, I applied to graduate school where I earned a doctorate in clinical psychology.

Today I am working to expand the definition of sociopathy to include its status as a spectrum disorder. Sociopaths are not inherently evil people. We suffer from what I believe to be an emotional learning disorder, one which is both relatable and treatable.
