Kathryn (Kathy) Rudlin, LCSW
With over 30 years as a licensed therapist in California, I was initially trained as a family therapist and gained valuable experience working with teens in settings to include foster care, wilderness therapy and psychiatric hospitals. My passion for this population included supervising interns, writing a workbook on facilitating adolescent groups, and publishing articles on parenting at-risk teens.
Personal, educational and professional experiences finally unlocked the mystery of my own family’s dysfunction and in doing so I discovered my passion to help others do the same. In meeting Wendy Behary, who successfully uses Schema Therapy to heal narcissists, and those in relationship with them; I discovered an approach that deeply heals this pain, decreases the trauma and allows those who use it to free themselves from the pain of the past and thrive!
The WIEBGE acronym stands for Will I Ever Be Good Enough?
and signifies certification in Dr. Karyl McBride¹s five-step
recovery model for treating adult children of narcissistic parents
Kathy authored the book: Ghost Mothers, to increase awareness of the difficulties in growing up un-mothered. She has a private practice in San Diego, CA, talks about Schema Therapy any chance she gets and is thrilled to be facilitating the training program with Litsa.
In addition, Kathy trained intensively with Dr. Karyl McBride, author of the book: Will I Ever Be Good Enough, and is a certified therapist through her program.
