Tina Swithin

Tina Swithin survived a Category Five Life Storm and took shelter by writing her first book in 2012 titled, "Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom's Battle." In 2014, Tina wrote her second book, "Divorcing a Narcissist: Advice from the Battlefield" and her third book, "Divorcing a Narcissist: Rebuilding After the Storm" followed shortly after. In 2016, Tina published her favorite book to date, "The Narc Decoder: Understanding the Language of the Narcissist."

Tina has dedicated her life to Family Court advocacy and helping those involved in high-conflict custody battles. Tina's internationally recognized blog, "One Mom's Battle" was turned into a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 2015 and she currently serves on the Board of Directors. In addition, Tina has created a private, membership-based forum, "The Lemonade Club," for those fighting to protect their children from personality disordered individuals. Each year, Tina holds a retreat called "The Lemonade Power Retreat" for those rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a high-conflict divorce.

Tina has become a voice 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 parental rights. Tina is working to raise awareness of the issues in the Family Court System and to educate the general public on 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 the past, 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" and on Huff Post LIVE. Tina's work has 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 Tina's books have garnered 5-star ratings with hundreds of 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.

Tina resides in San Luis Obispo, California with her husband, two daughters and Standard Poodle, Pixie.
