About

Dr. Allen a licensed Clinical Psychologist with a specialty practice in the treatment of emotional abuse (also known as narcissistic abuse). It is recognized as a destructive relationship pattern in which one person emotionally dominates and controls another. Victims are often confused and fearful and dismiss or deny hurtful behaviors. Quite frequently victims of narcissistic abuse engage their abuser with pleas for changed behavior. Dr Allen's specialty practice focuses on identifying the patterns of narcissistic abuse and helping victims calm the emotional storms they frequently encounter with self confidence and self-trust.
In 2010 Dr. Allen began focusing her practice on helping those who have been wounded emotionally by difficult personalities. She has developed specific interventions to help victims of narcissistic abuse. The goal is self-care in consideration of each person's distinctive characteristics and personal values.
Dr. Allen sees adults who are seeking a safe harbor from the emotional storms created by a difficult, disordered, or dangerous personality. The healthy individual is the one who seeks shelter when it is needed and is willing to accept responsibility for making personal changes in very challenging situations.

Ann Allen's Groups

Narcissistic Abuse Healing

This is a discussion group for those who have experienced emotional abuse in relationships with disordered personalities. The wounds are invisible and often leave the victim feeling isolated and hopeless. The primary advantage of the group discussion is to hear from others with similar experiences and know that you are not alone. Dr. Allen leads the discussion with suggestions for self care and strategies for building healthy relationships. The group is limited to four people and meets once a month for two hours.
