About me


   Arla Caraboolad has been helping people make gold out of their straw for twenty years. Take Tony, for example, who was loaded on Rx drugs and suicidal when he came, and seven months later was enjoying life and looking forward to graduation. His story is in chapter 11 of The Worst Evil--Losing Yourself. Tammy is another story, with a Narcissistic mom and Borderline daughter she was having a hard time being her. She found herself, and is doing well.

    Arla is a Marriage and Family Systems Therapist  in southern California, and also a Certified Family Life Educator. More important, she is a wife, mother, step-mom, and grandmother of seven.

    She loves to see people learn and come alive to their best selves. Since writing is another hobby, and health is key to being your best self, she writes for your total health: mental, physical, spiritual.  

   She gets excited about finding answers to questions of life and faith and health, and helping others find theirs as well.

   Her biggest passion is pursuing an experiential love relationship with God, and understanding the Rules of Engagement in the universal war between good and evil.
