Remedyblox founder and CEO, Remedy Max is a knowledgeable educator and public speaker on the subject of Domestic Abuse and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) Prevention. As a subject matter expert in this field as well on the subject of Personality Disorders and Human Deviant Behaviors with a special knowledge base in Narcissism, Sociopathy, Psychopathy and Sexual Deviance - she fully appreciates the sensitive nature of these difficult and very emotionally charged subject topics when speaking to public audiences or when working directly with survivors of IPV and narcissistic abuse.
Her public educational programs and individual consultation sessions offered to survivors of IPV and also various forms of narcissistic abuse - are delivered with compassion and understanding. That is because she is able to draw on her vast personal and professional experiences as well as on her formal educational background which she completed to help in her own recovery journey post a mentally abusive relationship with a dangerous criminal psychopath.
Remedy Max' drive to understand this form of Human Deviant Behavior has been fueled by her desire to help as many other survivors of domestic abuse and Narcissistic abuse to help them reclaim their sanity, gain validation as well as a new sense of personal empowerment so they can embrace new opportunities in life and start living again healthy and normal lives. Basically helping others move from victimhood to survivor status with the drive to not just learn to survive but also thrive in life!
In 1995, Remedy Max completed several Specialized Training Certifications in Human Deviant Behaviors including Intimate Partner Violence under the instruction and supervision of retired FBI Criminal Profiler Det. Roy Hazelwood and Dr. J. Reid Meloy, a board-certified forensic psychologist (ABPP) who is often called to provide expert testimony in criminal and civil cases throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Post completing the above certifications in Human Behavior Deviance, she went on to complete additional certifications and an undergraduate degree in Criminology, Law & Ethics and Bioethics from the University of Toronto. Fascinated with the Frailty of the Human Condition and Human Deviance Propensity she continued on with her studies to complete her Master's Degree in Criminology and a Collaborative Program in Addiction Studies in 2001 from the University of Toronto. From 2003 - 2004 she worked on the Woman's Abuse Council of Toronto (WACT) project and served as a Court Watch Reporter in the Provincial Family Courts in Ontario. In this role she monitored criminal court proceedings on domestic abuse trials to help identify what social justice reforms were needed to enhance a better understanding about the cycle of Domestic Abuse at trial and how the Criminal Justice could improve on meting out timely and just rulings to protect the rights and safety of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) survivors.
Sitting through numerous Domestic Violence court proceedings - Remedy Max personally observed and reported back on how some social biases and misconceptions about domestic violence prevailed during some trials where they produced a verdict that favored the accused to the detriment of the victim. Especially when the accused successfully managed to shift the blame on the victim and away from themselves using common Narcissistic traits and tactics. This left many survivors to feel revictimized by the court proceeding including holding legitimate new fears of not just their partner retaliating against them after getting off on a legal technicality or a slap on the wrist - but many also lost faith in the criminal justice system being unable to protect them in the future if another assault would occur. As such, the final WACT report was instrumental in identifying gaps needed to be filled along with various justice reforms so that perpetrators could be held better held accountable for the assault against their partner so that specific deterrence value could be achieved as well as general deterrence benefits to be gained for society as a whole.
In addition, recommended changes in the report also helped serve the interests of future survivors of domestic abuse with new confidence that justice would be served and that their rights and freedoms to living a life free from partner abuse mattered and was worth fighting for.
Understanding the need and true value of breaking the stigma and social biases held about domestic abuse and intimate partner violence as well as a lack of much needed public awareness about Narcissistic partner abuse - prompted Remedy Max to bring greater public awareness to this very personal and private offense against innocent victims. As such she started to lead public presentations to help others understand the progressive nature of both domestic and narcissistic abuse, how to break the cycle of abuse and the need to dispel common misconceptions why some partners stay with an abuser. Her presentations and workshops also speak to the different economic, cultural and ethnic barriers that factor in why many female and male IPV victims do not report or leave an abusive partner and why many feel stuck in a narcissistic relationship not by choice rather by circumstance.
In her commitment to spreading public awareness about domestic and narcissistic abuse to help inform and empower victims with risk reduction strategies and harm prevention tools to promote their personal physical and mental safety - she accepted the position of Weekly Safety & Security Columnist with the Metro Toronto newspaper in 2004. In this role she proceeded to write 110 safety and security articles over a two years' span to help individuals identify and better protect themselves against various situational and social risk exposures presented by strangers and also persons they trusted and knew.
Her newspaper articles were read in print by over 540,000 people each week in just the Greater Toronto Area plus accessed by millions of other online readers across North America and around the world - many of whom reached out to her regularly for added advice and support to help them break the cycle of abuse and reclaim their life.
Through her articles for the Metro Toronto Newspaper and other written publications about personal safety and security in other magazines - Remedy Max was instrumental in bringing needed attention to the incidence of male victims of both Intimate Partner Violence and also abusive Narcissistic partners (in opposite and same sex relationships). She often presented on about the dark shadow of crime (unreported incidence of male victims of IPV) which afforded many men who were suffering in silence at the hands of their abusive intimate partner (either male or female) to have their private plight finally recognized and acknowledged in the main stream. Many of whom also ended up reaching out to Remedy Max from all over the world for added insights and strategies to help guide them to safety from their abusive partner and away from the toxic and harmful relationship.
Remedy Max is a strong proponent and advocate for protecting the rights of both female and male IPV survivors and helping them navigate the emotional vortex such abuse creates in an individual. She also uses her voice and knowledge to deliver powerful educational platforms to provide strategic insights and support to those being victimized by their physically and/or emotionally and/or mentally abusive intimate partners so they can better protect themselves against further harms as well as gain the needed confidence and personal empowerment to find healthy and nurturing relationships in the future.
Her program topics are often emotionally charged and she readily speaks candidly to the uncomfortable truth about the Frailty of the Human Condition to help audiences gain the needed perspective that will lead them to safety as well as create social equity, protection of victims' rights and needed justice reforms for survivors so they can live in healthier, safer and inclusive social environments regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, abilities, age or economic status.

In February 2019 - RemedyBlox founder created the closed online support group called: "Recognizing Toxic People & Abusive Relationships".
This group is open to both men and women who are struggling with a particular difficult relationship with someone they know or are involved with (e.g., intimate partner, family member, neighbor, someone at work, etc..) who is causing them some form of undue hardship by being abusive, manipulative and controlling.
This online support group is a closed group to offer all members the value of posting openly about their personal ordeal for the benefit of gaining added insights and support from fellow members who have gone through or are going through a similar abusive relationship. Insights and information shared in this group is intended to help members learn not just how to survive but how to thrive after gaining their freedom from their abuser that was physically, emotionally, mentally, sexually and/or financially abusive or who is refusing to leave them alone after the relationship ended.
The administrator of this group is is Remedy Max (founder of RemedyBlox) where in addition to moderating the group activities she offers emotional support as well as identifying critical patterns in destructive behaviors, how to recognize toxic relationships so members can identify and validate their experiences. She also shares practical tools to help group members mitigate against future risks and harms while instilling self-confidence and empowerment to alleviate real and perceived fears that can prevent some from making the necessary changes in their lives.
Group members have ready access to many helpful risk-mitigation and recovery resources to help them break the cycle of abuse and reclaim their personal power and self-confidence so they can enter healthy and safe future relationships.

RemedyBlox offers various public presentations at community events and public forums for members of the general public as well as for special interest agency groups on the topic of Deviant Personality Disorders and Safeguarding Against Narcissistic Abuse and other types of toxic relationships.
The goal of these public educational platforms is to open the dialogue about this form of insidious form of abuse committed by individuals with Narcissistic Personality Disorders and toxic individuals who may be an intimate partner, a spouse, family member(s), friend(s), or even someone that one lives next to or works with - whose narcissistic traits can devastate an individual on various fronts.
Audiences learn about how these abusers target others for their own self-serving pleasure and personal benefits and gains without feeling any concern, remorse, regret or empathy for others. These public presentations also help offer survivors of narcissistic abuse with much needed validation to help them recognize that which they endured was not a figment of their imagination nor their doing. Rather, audiences gain the needed missing puzzle pieces to help them start recognizing what makes Narcissistic Personalities tick, how to avoid falling into their masterful manipulative traps as well helping them to recognize Narcissistic behaviors and traits in others before becoming emotionally, psychologically, physically, sexually and/or financially harmed or exploited.
Members of the general public also learn about the Yellow & Red Flags that Narcissistic Personality Types raise and how they can mitigate their risk exposures to better safeguard their personal safety and mental health against these skillful puppet masters.
We also speak to recovery strategies to help survivors of narcissistic abuse heal and move on from past narcissistic abuse so they can lead happy and fulfilled lives post a narcissistic relationship.
