Andrea Moore-Emmett, M.A. LMFT is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California in private practice. She holds a BA in sociology and an MA in psychology. Her specialty focus is on helping those dealing with the abuses of religious/cult affiliation, past and present. 

Moore-Emmett’s career trajectory into mental health practice grew from her work as a journalist while living in Utah and writing about polygamist cults in that state. She authored the book, God’s Brothel, The Extortion of Sex For Salvation in Contemporary Mormon and Christian Fundamentalist Polygamy and the Stories of 18 Women Who Escaped. She is the author of several articles covering polygamy for various national magazines and was the researcher for the A&E documentary, Inside Polygamy. As a journalist, she has been the recipient of five awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Utah Headliners Chapter, including the Don Baker Investigative Journalism Award. She was also awarded a Women in Communications Leading Changes Award and the Leadership Council on Abuse and Interpersonal Violence and the Institute on Violence, Abuse and Trauma 2008 Award for Distinguished Service and Excellence in Journalism.

I specialize in helping individuals & couples with relationship problems, stage of life changes, substance use, trauma, grief, depression & anxiety. Additionally, I specialize in helping transitioning/recovery from high demand religions, cults, other psychological manipulation & controlling affiliation.
