I specialize in helping you with heal from relationship trauma and wounding that may have been created in childhood or from a string of unhealthy relationships with people who were emotionally unavailable, narcissistic , or just emphasized that your needs weren't important.
Have you been in a relationship with someone who has been identified as a narcissist? Did your partner have little concern for your feelings and turn your world upside with chaos, conflict, abuse, and poor boundaries? You wonder what was wrong with you, why did things end this way, and if the universe working against you because people in your life seem unreliable, manipulative, and inconsistent. Distrust of others and pain seem to be your life's theme right now. You long for a safe place to connect with someone who understands.

I help adults with narcissistic or self-absorbed parents who still never feel they are good enough, who yearn for their own sense of self and identity.
I believe our mind & body are completely intertwined. I believe there are limitless possibilities within every human being. You are not your symptoms. I do not believe in limits set by a diagnosis or label for you to identify yourself by, instead I help you find your true nature, your Self, & peace within in the midst of difficulty, change, loss, - life! I've been a psychologist for over 25 years, yet the way I help people today is entirely different than a decade ago. Today I help adults using brain-based talk therapy & mindfulness, using an integrated approach to emotional wellness by focusing on your whole self and life today.

Accepting New Clients / Aceptando Nuevos Clientes! Your stories, pain and feelings are valid. Not everyone is going to understand the trauma you have experienced or the symptoms that accompany it, that's okay, it doesn't make it any less real. Methods of surviving trauma/abuse become symptoms; anxiety, depression, dissociation, somatic symptoms and hypervigilance, and can become distressing when no longer utilized for survival. They can also manifest as people pleasing, unhealthy relationships, difficulty trusting others, setting boundaries, shame and avoidance. I am here to hold space for you and your healing.

Welcome! Let's see if we are a good fit :) First, I care unconditionally for my clients and respect them; operating completely without judgment. I will always be honest and "hold up a mirror" to help them examine and shift core beliefs keeping them stuck. I believe most behavior change follows from this space of challenge and support. I specialize in treating those who are seen as different, misunderstood. People with personality disorders, neurodivergence (ADHD, ASD+), substance use, eating disorders, trauma, self-injury, OCD features. I enjoy helping others with more moderate issues too, like young folks struggling to "adult".

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a practice that focuses on young adults, adults, seniors, couples, veterans, and families. I am also a United States Army Combat Veteran, and a father who knows what it is like to put other people's needs before your own. It takes time, exploration, and effort to learn a new way of looking at yourself. It takes time to see what is on the other side of the coin.

I am a licensed psychologist specializing in working with ethnic minorities, survivors of trauma (specifically survivors of interpersonal trauma), and LGBTQIA+ individuals. I approach therapy from a multicultural, feminist, strength-based, and relational perspective. I will see you as a whole person with multiple (sometimes incompatible) identities. I aim to empower you to use your voice. Just like being in any other relationship, the therapist-client match is very important. Together, we will work together to address the issues you are coming in with by learning more about yourself and how you interact with others.

When life is overwhelming or you feel stuck, I can help you move toward self-management, joy and purpose. In a comfortable, positive and safe environment, I help couples learn to communicate gently and openly so that they can enjoy a deeply connected relationship. I help parents and teens to adjust, team-up and learn to talk to one another through life's biggest hurdles. Let's create a plan and execute it, moving from self-doubt to confidence, from anger to understanding and freedom, and from anxiety to peace of mind.

(I'm available for Psychotherapy and BBS-authorized ASW supervision--sliding scale.) Statement: Our cultural institutions do not prepare us for a diverse, changing world. We are led to believe one set of rules will carry us to success, when flexibility and adaptiveness are really the keys. Inability to adapt in the work place and social endeavors can lead to self-criticism, anxiety, depression, and/or anger. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is effective in symptom reduction, but it is not engineered to handle broader questions of identity, self-understanding and purpose. My aim is to explore your narrative and make it more engaging.

Hello, I'm Jen, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I earned my clinical mental health degree from Loyola Marymount University, LA, in 2017. I chose that specific program for its emphasis on cultural humility and the importance of integrating this into the therapeutic alliance, working toward healthy outcomes for my clients. I am a Veteran of the United States Air Force and started my clinical journey working with Veterans who struggle with substance abuse and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQIA+ community, Veterans, and first-generation college students.. ​

You're looking for a therapist because you know somethings not right. You struggle in your life, and you don't know why you do ... and it's been this way for a while. I'm 70 years old. I've been through it and I've done my own work and can help guide you to finding your true coherent self without the self-doubt, the depression, the anxiety and the dysfunctional relationships. When we are young, we are very susceptible to programming that shapes our self-image. The defeats that we had then are the defeats we feel now. Lifespan Integration therapy gets to the source of those conflicts that hold these untrue beliefs & reactions.

Childhood traumatic experiences such as abandonment, abuse, and neglect lead to social anxiety. My approach is solution-focused and tailored to your needs and goals. I am committed to providing a profound sense of safety and offering compassionate and actionable guidance to all my clients.

I enjoy working with individuals (18 or older) that are curious about themselves, reflective and who desire change. The therapeutic alliance or the relational 'good fit' stands out as the fundamental factor in effective treatment. I am interested in developmental issues in adults and addressing repetitive patterns that stand in the way of growth. My approach is psychoanalytic psychotherapy including attachment , mentalization and creativity based treatments.

You are thinking about your situation and cannot seem to make sense of it. You keep repeating the same train of thought, but you continue to be stuck in a rut. You want to change the way you see your situation; you are sure there is something you are missing, but you just can’t put your finger on it. You’ve talked to friends and family about what is going on, and you have been in therapy before, but you still can’t get past what is bothering you.

Working as a Counselor and Chaplain for 12 years has prepared me to meet my clients where they are and walk along side with them in mourning and rejoicing. My motivation for helping is rooted in compassion for those who are in need of healing. It is important to build relationships with clients to assure them they are in a non judgmental environment where it is safe to have a voice to share their challenges. I specialize in using Mindfulness Techniques to help decrease stress, anxiety, and depression. This will allow each client to focus on one's awareness on the present and meet their goals in a healthy and stress free atmosphere.

Narcissistic Personality (NPD) Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder, whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware of the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.
