Were you involved with a psychopath or other manipulator or abuser in your last relationship? Are you starting to think about taking another chance at love?
The thought of new relationships probably makes you nervous. They’re not the carefree thing they used to be. In the past, when you met someone you were interested in you didn’t wonder if they might be a psychopath. You’re wiser now. But you’re also wise enough to know that it can be impossible to see the truth about someone in the beginning of a relationship.
That thought is unnerving, because you don’t want to be victimized again. You wonder what you can do to protect yourself. I’m happy to announce that I’ve published a book that deals with that concern:
It gets to the heart of the matter of boundaries for survivors of pathological relationships.
“This small book was full of tons of useful information. I don’t usually write in my books, but my copy of Boundaries has underlining on almost every page. I was really glad I bought it.”
~ Amazon Reviewer
Before you venture back out, develop personal boundaries. You’re not really ready until you do. It is that important. Boundaries — combined with the knowledge and experience you now have — can help you avoid becoming involved in another abusive relationship.
When you create boundaries, you do something profoundly important. You take a stand for yourself and for what’s important to you, and you communicate it to others in a real and practical way.
“When we don’t have boundaries, we neglect who we are and what we want. As a result, we see the skewed image of ourselves reflected in the eyes of those to whom we give our power, and we mistake it for the truth.”
This 50-page book is filled with practical wisdom along with useful exercises and tips. It will walk you through the process of creating boundaries from start to finish.

What Readers Say
“The BEST Manual on how to protect yourself from becoming a victim again – I know the subject too well… I am going to recommend it to the facilitators in the divorce support group I am attending.”
“Excellent Book for Individual, Group or Use in Therapy. A very well written book by an author who has a firm grip on abusers and their cunning ways. Excellent description on what boundaries are, why they are needed and what they can do for the holder of the newly created list of personal boundaries. This book if studied and put into practice could protect many from the narcissists, sociopaths and psychopaths in all areas of one’s life. It would lend exceptional protection in the area of dating. It would protect a person from repeating the selection of another abuser if a past relationship was abusive. Highly recommend!”
