Donna Andersen is an expert on sociopaths and narcissists in relationships. She can help you identify if your partner, family member, work colleague or friend is disordered, and offer you practical advice on what to do — how to escape, or if that isn’t possible, how to cope.
Donna learned about sociopaths the hard way—by marrying one. James Alwyn Montgomery, originally of Sydney, Australia, met her and quickly proposed in 1996. In two and a half years, Montgomery defrauded her of $227,000, cheated on her with at least six different women, fathered a child with one of them, and then, 10 days after Donna left him, married the mother of the child. It was the second time he committed bigamy.
Because of her experience, in 2005 Donna founded Lovefraud.com, a website and blog that teaches people how to recognize and recover from sociopaths — people who could be diagnosed with antisocial, narcissistic, borderline, histrionic or psychopathic personality disorder. Over the years she has collected more than 10,000 cases and helped thousands of people. She’s written eight books:
- Senior Sociopaths – How to recognize and escape lifelong abusers
- Understanding the Sociopath
- Seduced by a Sociopath
- Dealing with a Sociopath
- Recovery from the Sociopath
- Red Flags of Love Fraud—10 signs you’re dating a sociopath
- Red Flags of Love Fraud Workbook
- Love Fraud—How marriage to a sociopath fulfilled my spiritual plan
Donna founded Lovefraud Education and Recovery. The nonprofit offers online webinars to help survivors and therapists spot, escape and recover from narcissists, antisocials, psychopaths and other manipulators. She is co-author of a scientific paper about therapy for victims of sociopaths, and has presented research to the Society for the Scientific Study of Psychopathy.
Donna has appeared on television shows including Insight in Australia, ABC News 20/20, Who the Bleep Did I Marry?, My Life is a Lifetime Movie, Handsome Devils and The Ricki Lake Show. She has been interviewed for multiple radio shows, print articles and web posts.
According to expert estimates, there may be 30 million adult sociopaths in the United States — and millions more around the world. These people are dangerous to your emotions, health, physical safety and finances. They can be avoided, if you know what to look for. Unfortunately, most of us don’t know the warning signs, and end up entangled with them. Donna can help you escape and recover — and yes, recovery is possible. Donna met her new husband in 2001, and they’ve been together ever since.
Donna offers personal consultations via phone, Zoom or Skype.
A woman who called for advice wrote:
Thank you again Donna for talking with me this evening. I feel so much relief from that conversation. You helped me sort through much of the confusion. I will surely be on your website regularly checking out articles and posts.
One man from the United States who has spoken to Donna on several occasions says:
I had the good fortune of finding Donna Andersen to help in my struggle with sociopathic relationships. I took advantage of her consultation services and she has helped focus my awareness and understanding of where and why my troubles originate.
I can’t say enough about how she’s helped me time and again, despite the fact I’ve failed so often to follow through on her sound advice. Once, when I wrote and told her I’d blocked numbers in my “No Contact” effort, I insisted she let me donate to her cause. She did, and soon after I broke the NC stipulation she’d imposed. Since then she has refused my repeated efforts to donate to her cause until I maintain the NC.
This fact alone has shown me her integrity in looking out for my best interests. She tops the chart in helping me understand, be aware of and repair the damage caused by sociopaths.
