SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Aug. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tina Swithin was swept off her feet by a modern day Prince Charming and married him one year later. Tina soon discovered that there was something seriously wrong with her fairytale. Tina's seven-year marriage was filled with lies, deception, fraud and many tears. Tina first heard the term Narcissistic Personality Disorder from her therapist in 2008, but she discovered that there is one thing more difficult than being married to a narcissist, and that is divorcing a narcissist. A six-year custody battle ensued in which Tina acted as her own attorney and in 2014, she walked out of the Family Court System with complete peace and most importantly, her daughters' safety.
During her custody battle, Tina created a blog and non-profit organization (www.onemomsbattle.com), authored two books, "Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom's Battle" (2012) and "Divorcing a Narcissist: Advice from the Battlefield" (2014) which continue to hold 5-star ratings on Amazon. Since her battle ended, Tina has dedicated her life to coaching men and women who are involved in custody battles with personality disordered individuals such as Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder.

- The Lemonade Power Retreat: This is your opportunity to spend a weekend with Tina Swithin and other warrior moms who understand the harsh realities of a Category 5 Divorce Hurricane. Whether you are in the beginning stages of a custody battle, in the trenches or have emerged on the other side, this will be a weekend of peace, healing and camaraderie that you won't want to miss. The retreat will be held on November 6-8, 2015 in Northern San Luis Obispo County and there are currently seven spaces (total of 20 attendees) remaining.
- The Lemonade Club (TLC): TLC is a private forum where members can come together and offer support, understanding and advice. This is a place where members can speak openly (and safely) about the struggles and the issues that go hand-in-hand with a custody battle involving a narcissist. The forum is designed to motivate and inspire those who are facing the biggest battle of their lives.
Despite an emotionally crippling battle, Tina has turned "lemons to lemonade" and hopes to share and inspire others who are in the trenches of the Family Court System. "I remember feeling so alone in my battle. No one understood what I was enduring – not even my friends and family. I was in the courtroom 13 times in 2012 alone – this was the most difficult time in my life and it is my goal to let others know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel." Despite an incredibly broken Family Court System, positives outcomes do exist and Tina Swithin is living proof of this.
