Clinical and Forensic Psychologist/Author

Christina Turin, PhD.

I am Christina Turin, a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist with 35 years of professional experience. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to understanding and addressing women's issues, particularly those related to sexual trauma. As a Forensic Psychologist, I have provided expert testimony in capital murder cases, specifically focusing on death penalty mitigation.

For three decades, I worked as a staff psychologist at Feliciana Forensic Facility, the Louisiana state hospital for mentally ill offenders. In that role, I conducted Competency to Stand Trial and Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity evaluations, and Sanity Commissions. Additionally, I served as the Coordinator for First Responder Services for Louisiana Spirit, Louisiana's recovery effort from the devastating hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Currently, I am in private practice where I specialize in working with individuals affected by Parental Alienation, Adult Child Estrangement, and Narcissism. Through my therapy practice, I have had the privilege of working with single parents who are struggling to navigate co-parenting dynamics with manipulative ex-husbands and wives. These courageous parents face numerous challenges, including an unsympathetic court system, psychological attacks from their former partners, and the painful experience of being abandoned, often without any explanation, by their once loving children.

Outside of my professional life, I have cherished a partnership of over twenty years with my beloved Rocky Mountain horse, Ritz. Currently, I provide hospice care for two geriatric canines, Phyllis and Bonzai, as well as a lively seven-year-old Border Collie named Rodeo.

I am deeply committed to supporting individuals and families who are grappling with the complex dynamics of Estrangement, Alienation, and Narcissism. Through my experience and expertise, I strive to provide understanding, guidance, and healing to those who are enduring these challenging circumstances.
