About Dr. Staik

Athena Staik

Athena Staik, Ph.D. is a relationship coach and consultant who integrates neuroscience, psychology, and mindfulness to empower clients to break free of early survival-fear relating patterns, to connect to powerful inner capacities for healing and emotion regulation, and to take the reins to consciously create and live their best lives and relationships.

Her background includes more than 15 years as an adjunct professor in the disciplines of psychology, family science, and sociology; and over 10 years of experience in private practice as a licensed marriage and family therapist. She has developed her own relational “conscious-love” approach, a synthesis of proven psychological interventions, neuroscience, attachment theory, and the latest on the brain and intimate relationships, and is currently writing her book, Breaking Free of the Mind Fog and Wholeheartedly Thriving After Narcissistic Abuse.
