About Me & The Gentle Souls Revolution

Esther with Mando_edited.jpg

I'm a licensed mental health counselor, expressive art therapist, songwriter, performer and author of The Gentle Souls RevolutionI wrote this book after my 5-year misadventure in a secret "school."

Today my raison d'être is to destigmatize cult experiences and offer a recovery template for self reclamation. When I learned how cults exploit human nature and uncertainty, I embraced my anger, exposed secrets and started protecting my time and energy fiercely. 


I took back my voice through writing, songwriting and presenting. When I valued my Gentle Soul, "vulnerabilities" became strengths.

The GSR Healing ARTs mission is:
1) Educate and raise awareness.

2) Facilitate reclamation and empowerment.
