Hello, I would be happy to help you find a good therapist that can direct you into preventing this "gas-lighting" behavior, but first I would need to know what city and state you live in?

Thank you for that information. So these are effective therapists that specialize in relationships and the issue of "gas-lighting" as well, so one of them should be very effective for you and your overall treatment.
