Who is Dr. Jamie?

As a trauma-certified psychologist and licensed clinical social worker, Dr. Jamie’s experiences in clinical practice, ‌media, and government affairs have provided him with unique opportunities to develop tools to help burned-out adults at worksites, couples in crisis and alienated families caught in Toxic Abusive Relationships (TAR).

He does that by providing education, empowerment and energy to individuals, couples, families, organizations and communities at large to reduce the detrimental damage of TAR, attachment disorders and parental alienation by encouraging individuals to create loving and healthy environment for themselves and their loved ones.

Dr. Jamie dedicates his legacy — working to make a better place for his daughter and all children to grow in a world that fosters happy, healthy, and healing relationships.

What is TAR?

Toxic Abusive Relationships (TARs) lack empathy, responsibility, and accountability. Victims are relegated as collateral damage, and their reality has been warped and distorted from being involved with a toxic parent, a toxic partner, from a country with an autocratic leader, or a hostile work environment.

TARs start with parental alienation, a major public health emergency. Children who see abuse between parents risk perpetuating transgenerational patterns that lead to TARs. They become unwitting victims of a controlling parent bent on destroying their relationship with the other.

People emerging from or going through TARs need education, empowerment, and energy. Dr. Jamie founded the TAR Network™ to ensure that future generations are well-informed and aware before stepping into TAR; helping victims to break toxic cycles and make sense of situations that make no sense at all.

TAR Network™ is a 501(c)(3) bringing awareness, education, empowerment and resources to men, women and children who have suffered the devastation of a Toxic Abusive Relationship (TAR).

TAR Network™ serves as a platform that educates, drives media production efforts and promotes public health campaigns to drive policy decisions for future generations. TAR Network™ was shaped by international like-minded experienced professionals who understand firsthand “the hell that is created” when someone is involved in the cycle of narcissistic abuse from a partner, a family member, a worksite, or even a government leader.

TAR Network currently consists of TAR Tales™ and Partners in Men’s Health™, and soon will dedicate resources to the Being Heard Campaign™, Partners in Women’s Health™, TAR Worksite™ and more.
