About the Author
Dr. Palfy obtained her Ph. D. in Counseling Psychology at the University of Alberta. While conducting her doctoral research, she examined the reasons why males do not commonly disclose sexual abuse. She was well-prepared to research the topic based on her prior profession in law enforcement as an officer with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police where she focused on sex crimes investigations and specialized in the global sexual victimization of children. It was in that capacity that she gained professional proficiency in identifying the sophisticated grooming tactics used by perpetrators.
Dr. Palfy brings the unique combination of her professional experience and perspective to her practice and to her book. She is currently a trained trauma therapist and public speaker. As a private practitioner, she works with male survivors of sexual abuse, as well as first responders and couples. She is trained in the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Outside of her professional life she is an avid outdoor adventurer, enjoying hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, and paddle boarding. She treasures her time with good friends and her pets.
