This includes depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, self-harm and Narcissistic abuse through therapies such as CBT, DBT, ACT, Narrative therapy and Trauma informed care.
Have you experienced things that have left you hurt, confused, fearful, angry? Do you feel as though no one will understand? Do you feel your identity is broken? Experiences have many variants. Some can be beautiful, while others leave us feeling traumatized, used, alone, and afraid. The outcomes can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, or thoughts to not be here anymore. This can impact how you feel about yourself, others, and how you live your life. Each person has their own unique story. I provide an open space to hear and guide using mindfulness-psychodynamic based practices catered to each individuals need.

It can be challenging and perhaps intimidating to ask for what you need when feelings of guilt and shame consume your thoughts, emotions, and influence your behaviors. This can result in feelings of frustration, unable to trust self and others, avoiding uncomfortable situations/emotions, and feel at a loss. Sometimes you may feel like the people and places you have counted on have wronged you and led you to believe that who you are is not what is expected of you and may feel like your voice has been stripped away. Which may result in you hiding your ability to express yourself and form/maintain relationships with others.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in San Diego. 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 the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

San Diego narcissism therapists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in San Diego they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.
