 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, designated scapegoated child (with the harassment and smear campaigns never-ending into adulthood from my family of origin), mobbing, stalking, and have been a workplace adult bullying target.

As a Licensed Family Therapist, Master Healer, Deep Rooted Trauma Expert,

and Complex Trauma Expert, my motto is:

Your Trauma is NOT DRAMA"


I invite you to start your healing journey today. We specialize in many areas of trauma. Basically, we treat those that have been abused, neglected, ostracized, inappropriately marginalized,  and 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 deep-rooted trauma work that will help you 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, EMDR 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

Social Justice Efforts: Family Violence, Transphobia                        Hate/Violence, Workplace Bullying,

Psychological and Emotional Abuse Advocacy                                       At Better Path Family Counseling we will have demonstrations, rallies, and marches with the purpose and intent being to demand legislature to be written that charges emotional and psychological abusers with a criminal domestic violence charge; identical to criminal physical and sexual abuse charges, for inflicting such heinous torture, somatic disturbances, autoimmune issues, physical pain, CPTSD, PTSD, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, STDs, false allegations to family services, mobbing, gang stalking, financial abuse, heartache, devastating grief and loss, constant internal turmoil, deformation of character, smear campaigns, tarnished reputation, instability, public humiliation,  victim blame, and overall significant (and in most cases irreversible damage) to the lives of their victims. SOUL CRUSHING CHRONIC EAMITONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ABUSE leads to a lack of ability to function and carry on as a responsible working adult, chronic fatigue, many mental and physical health issues, and in (more cases than we are led to believe), suicide.  ISN'T IT ABOUT TIME WE STOP PROTECTING ABUSERS? ISNT ABOUT TIME WE STOP VICTIM-BLAMING AND SHAMING? ISNT IT ABOUT TIME WE STOP TURNING A BLIND EYE AND SWEEPING ABUSE UNDER THE RUG? It's time to hold these mask wearers accountable. You can find them in all walks of life. It's a highly resorted form of abuse,  due to the fact that the abuser believes their hands remain clean after kicking off mass amounts of dirty manipulative maneuvers against their target. However, some of the same investigative tactics are used to get to the bottom of a physical crime be can and should be used to get the root of lies and false allegations against a person's character and actions.  We are combatting the spirit.... we don't have time to pick fights with individuals in our social justice and advocacy efforts. That's never been a characteristic of mine, nor will I support revealing abusers' names publicly. Again we are fighting against the spirit of this behavior. This type of abuse claims lives by way of suicide or people becoming an empty shell of their former selves. with complete and total loss and devastation all around them. When they go low we go high and we speak facts about the damages caused by this type of abuse. We will rally and match for these high crimes to be taken more seriously by healing and empowering one another to come together and stand up against emotional and psychological abuse.
