Fortunately in recent years there has been significant research on the impact of psychological abuse, narcissistic abuse syndrome, and growing information related to treatment for survivors.
You feel completely, utterly alone. You wonder “What is wrong with me?” “Am I losing my mind?” “Am I crazy?” “When will I be good enough?” You have likely suffered psychological abuse. Not the cuts and bruises that can be seen, but instead the hidden abuse that causes psychological injuries that shatter your emotions, self-esteem and wound your soul. Maybe you grew up with a toxic parent, are involved with a narcissistic significant other, or are constantly dealing with a toxic friend or coworkers. I specialize in treating survivors of narcissistic abuse because I know how hard it is to find a therapist that gets it. I've lived it.

I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Sarasota. 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.

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