My specialties include Anxiety, Trauma, Abuse, Narcissistic Abuse & Depression.
During my years of tenure as a professional counselor I have found a few simple truths. Anxiety is real & it is ok. Let’s turn it into a strength. Trauma, depression & abuse of all kinds are real. Everyone deserves help & no one should go through it alone. Perhaps its lack of sleep, lack of self-care, lack of motivation, intrusive thoughts, diminishing personal connections, avoiding social engagements, over/under eating, or removing ourselves from the ones we love. Most of us will experience these very real issues during different points in our lives. You deserve to heal & experience your full potential.

I promise you that even when it feels like you just can't do it anymore.. you really can! I personally have experienced much of life's hardships but I'm grateful for that because it gave me the opportunity to help others! I love helping people find their passion and understand how to cope through life. I primarily work with narcissistic abuse survivors as well as empaths and HSP's. Understanding how to function in a world that you seemingly don't fit into can be a huge challenge that comes with what seems like, debilitating anxiety, depression, and more. Being an empath myself, I can completely understand and relate to my clients!

I’m passionate about working with people who have experienced trauma, abuse (including narcissistic , relational, and childhood), PTSD, neglect, betrayal, attachment wounds, and relationship issues.
Is there a time in your life when you've felt alone, betrayed, unhappy or lost? Difficulties often leave us feeling helpless, isolated, and overwhelmed. As we unpack the trauma, anger, pain, and loss, you will learn tools for living authentically, transforming the way you connect, and experience healing and growth. On this journey of emotional healing and recovery I love seeing the progression one experiences as they show up and commit to working through life’s difficulties. We will walk down this path together, at your pace, implementing various techniques and tools that work best for you.

Whether you’re struggling with overthinking, anxiety, a life transition, grief or the long-term effects of being raised by a narcissistic and/or alcoholic parent, I got you.
You are not only good enough, you are BETTER than good enough. I know it may not FEEL like it at times. The harsh inner critic, the inability to make (or trust yourself to make) decisions, the putting on a brave face when on the inside you just want to scream. The things that keep you stuck are getting in the way of you living the life you deserve. And deep down, you know it’s time for a change. It’s time to treat yourself the way you treat others, with care and compassion. It’s time to find your way out of the vicious cycles that keep you stuck in overwhelm, self-doubt, overthinking, perfectionism, and people-pleasing.

My focus is the healing of Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Grief, & Narcissistic Abuse.
I’ve found that the most valuable currency is being the most true version of ourselves. Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, Grief & Abuse can make it challenging to stay on your best path. Maybe ambition is lost, or a compass is broken through no fault of our own. Perhaps you're experiencing lack of sleep, lack of self-care, lack of motivation, intrusive thoughts, diminishing personal connections, avoiding social engagements, over/under eating, or removing ourselves from the ones you love.

You’re wrong again! Or at least thats what you’ve been told over & over again, to the point that your brain feels like its floating in acid water, slowing dissolving your ability to perceive any given situation, event or memory of a conversation accurately. You don’t recall having problems with memory or perception before this relationship. You’re struggling to make sense of every day things. This is just one of the effects of narcissistic abuse. It's called gaslighting, it's an insidious tool used to erode your ability to perceive reality and its also one of the most common tools used by a narcissist to control and manipulate you.

I am passionate about helping people navigate and understand the complexities of psychological/ narcissistic abuse and unhealthy relational patterns; manage the pain of grief; and resolve trauma.
I believe it is imperative that we broaden our definition of "trauma." Trauma can be ANYTHING disruptive (in addition to assault, combat, death, etc.). An unhealthy relationship; a break-up; bullying; neglect; a stressful event or period of time are all traumatic. These disruptive experiences influence what we think about ourselves and our world; and they often guide our decisions and perspectives.

Telehealth Only; Do you struggle with imposter syndrome? Do you often find yourself comparing yourself to others around you? Do you worry that your thoughts or experiences are "abnormal" or shameful? So many of my clients come to therapy with these same fears and insecurities. I am no stranger to these very emotions myself! While I know it may seem easier to bottle these feelings up, tuck them away, and pretend they're not there, I also know that you can learn to release them, and I am honored to help. I believe that therapy is a safe space for individuals to explore their true authentic selves without fear of judgment or reprisal.

You said you would never stay with someone who cheated. You can’t believe he did this. It's like a nightmare. You are considering divorce but you want to believe him and deep down you want to get through this if it’s possible. You thought you knew him. Could it be possible he loves you like he says he does when he hurt you like this? Did he even consider you? It’s embarrassing to bring this up to anyone. You wonder if people will judge you if you stay and will they ever be able to see him in the same light if you tell people and are able to work it out? You have already talked for hours and don't know how you can get through this.

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Therapists

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.
