Have you been researching Narcissistic Personality Disorder or other Cluster B Disorders in the DSM V, and you're realizing that whatever you have been dealing with day today for the last few months, years, or several decades is not normal? Are you beginning to wake us to the fact that you have been horribly, mentally, psychologically, and emotionally abused? Did you grow up in a dysfunctional family where you were the scapegoat/black sheep and involuntarily held space for others' shame and guilt? Do you feel like you do not know who you are anymore and your life has been turned upside down, from one traumatic event after another?


If you identified with some of those questions and are ready to heal but have no idea where to begin because no one believes you and you are surrounded by people treating you as though you are unworthy of validation, praise, trustworthiness?  Are you aware that traditional therapy will not work in your situation due to your abuser and others blaming you?


My name is Tina Rix, and I'm the owner of Better Path Family Counseling and Consulting. PLLC. I am a survivor of multiple rounds of Narcissistic Abuse, smear campaigns, family childhood sexual abuse, whistleblower abuse, scapegoated child, mobbing, stalking, and have been a workplace adult bullying target. As a Licensed Family Therapist, Master Healer, Deep Rooted Trauma Expert, Complex Trauma Expert. My motto is, 
Your Trauma is NOT DRAMA."  I invite you to start your healing journey! We specialize in Complex Trauma and Domestic Violence of all sort. Bascially, we treat those that have been abused, neglected, ostreracised, and inappropriately discriminated against due to their experienced trauma and abuse. 

We help you work through your traumas, rewrite your story, heal, understand what has happened to you and how things got so bad, and support you as you pick up the pieces and rebuild a life of self-love, empowerment, advocacy, contentment, and peace. 

You are worthy, you are loved, you are special, there is more life ahead of you, and what was done to you will not be your legacy, but rather chapters of your story as you pass from the darkness to the light. You deserve healthy relationships with yourself and others. We will work through the deep dark areas you do not want to revisit and guide you through the work that needs to do acknowledge the event, process how it affected you, understand the emotional and psychological damage that has been done, and how these events may have patterned you to walk into another abusive and/or unhealthy situation later on in life.

We utilize Family Systems Therapy, Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Systems Thinking, Support Groups, Social work, Community Supports, Music Therapy, Art, Therapy, Play Therapy, Expressive Dance Therapy, Seminars. and Retreats to foster a deep internal understanding of you that never got to be and help you find true yourself that was published, abused, and not allowed to exist under the hands of your abuser(s). My vision is to help our survivors appreciate their uniqueness as you learn to truly love in a way that settles for nothing less than love in return. My Master Healer status helps clients understand the concept I call social interaction transactional currency called to respect and reciprocity. We train our therapists to help empower you to live a life of peace, clarity, develop healthy boundaries, and teach you how to identify toxic behaviors and characteristics
