Divorcing a Narcissist


This week on The Divorce Doctor, I had a fantastic conversation with Tina Swithin. Tina is the author of the Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom’s Battle series as well as the founder of One Mom’s Battle.

Tina takes us through her journey of surviving a “Category Five Divorce Hurricane”. Her divorce story takes the term “high-conflict” to a completely new level and twists and turns through the dramatic landscape of a custody battle with an individual diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD). Tina acted as her own attorney while living in a women’s shelter and now works to educate and advocate for other families navigating divorce and custody battles. Listen in to learn more about the grit and courage that Tina tapped into to make it through her harrowing divorce.
