You’re dealing with a lot; feeling guilty and confused. Guilty for not loving more or trying harder. They’re telling you these things - it must be true, right? They were charismatic and charming, showering you with PDA and compliments, but it all changed. You’re embarrassing they say, and now you feel trapped and broken. You’re not alone. It's not your fault. You Google “abusive relationships” and read about narcissistic abuse. That’s your life! You need guidance. I know this because I needed it too. I chased “good enough” trying to “behave well” for my family. After college, I married and divorced a narcissist who always blamed me.

Collectively, we have just experienced some of the most challenging times of our lives, and continuing. My framework is holistic in nature and offered virtually at this time. My focus has shifted to include techniques such as Emotional Freedom Tapping, body awareness modalities, breathing techniques, talk therapy, visualization, and other creative coping tools that can be self applied outside of session safely. These tools can be used to help manage de-regulation, nervous system overload, to gain clarity, and to act as a more gentle introductory towards the path of healing especially for those that have never sought therapy before.

I have a special interest in helping women leave narcissistic partners (and parents) and develop a loving relationship with themselves.
Are you an highly sensitive, empathic woman in your 20s or 30s with high emotional intelligence, a difficult relationship with your parents, who is realizing you are in a relationship with a narcissist? Are you crazy or is he gaslighting you? Are you too needy, or is he avoidant? Your friends are sick of hearing about him and have no idea why you stay - and neither do you. You're embarrassed - it's like you're addicted to this cycle that doesn't make sense. Sometimes you have a love that feels so incredibly strong, hes your best friend - how could he treat you this way? You love him, but it's ruining your life (hi Swifties!).

I specialize in narcissistic abuse, grief/loss, emotionally focused therapy, attachment trauma, and perfectionism.
We teach people how to treat us. If we don’t know how to love ourselves, to accept ourselves, to be compassionate with ourselves, how can we expect others to? If you struggle with issues such as people pleasing, guilt, shame, having high expectations of yourself but have low expectations of others then you have placed others’ needs over your own. If you have a hard time saying no because you worry that others will not like you or want to spend time with you, then working on boundaries assists you with experiencing clearer expectations of yourself and others. Work towards a healthier you.

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Counsellors

What type of therapy is best for narcissistic personality disorder?

Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is best treated with talk therapy, which could involve cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, schema therapy, gestalt therapy, or similar approaches. A therapist will help a patient uncover the feelings that may drive their behavior and discover how to engage with themselves and those around them with greater empathy and understanding, fewer demands, and less defensiveness, with the goal of developing a more authentic sense of self that enables healthier relationships.

How do therapists treat NPD?

By developing a strong therapeutic relationship, and continually focusing patients on relationships, community, and connection, a therapist, through talk therapy, may be able to help someone with NPD change. In sessions, a therapist will help an individual achieve relief from their current stressors, including the treatment of co-occurring conditions such as anxiety or depression. A therapist may also help an individual to recognize unhealthy coping mechanisms, learn new ways of interacting with others, and eventually become able to feel and display empathy.

Can a narcissist be cured with therapy?

Therapy can be effective. After a serious setback or great loss, someone with NPD may be forced to recognize that they are not immune to life’s challenges. That can spur feelings of melancholy and depression that lead them to seek professional help. Once an individual decides to seek help, they have already taken a step that the majority of those with NPD never will. Still, people with NPD often quit therapy as they naturally resist feeling vulnerable, being challenged, or admitting to flaws.

How can you get narcissistic personality disorder treatment for someone?

It is notoriously difficult to convince someone with NPD to seek help. With their feelings of superiority, they may be unlikely to recognize or acknowledge that they have a problem, or that their problem is narcissism. Sometimes, they are aware that they are arrogant and that others resent them but they don’t see it as a problem because they are convinced of their superiority. People with NPD have trouble maintaining relationships, but family members and others who do feel close to them, and whose presence they value, may be able to encourage them to seek therapy.
