*PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL* If you have been hurt by a narcissistic relationship, I can help! When you have a relationship with a narcissist, the repetitive self centeredness takes its toll. You end up questioning if you are good enough, creating distrust and ultimatley wondering if its even possible for you to have an intimate and healthy relationship. As a therapist who specializes in narcississtic relationships, I've worked to understand brain development, trauma, and healing. My clients share that they are able to establish connection, set boundaries, and finally create relationships that are both fulfilling and supportive.

I am particularly passionate about working with survivors of narcissistic abuse.
I believe we are all created for connection in relationship, and that all relationships have the potential to bring great joy and great struggle. Through our therapeutic relationship, by addressing the concerns that bring you to therapy, a process occurs that produces healing, transformation, and growth. My approach to counseling varies, but is rooted in trauma-informed, relational psychotherapy, focusing on key attachment relationships, and exploring the moments, social and cultural constructs, and ideologies that have shaped you.

Psychotherapy and counseling for individuals and groups regarding life issues: work, aging, health, body, personal relationships, finances and experiencing the Self. My integrative approach can reduce anxiety and depression; move blocked cellular energy; heal loss and grief; transform relationship. Coping skills are formed early to survive in family-of-origin and the culture. As we age, these coping skills become less adaptive, causing pain. Successful transition through life involves changing our ways of coping to keep what works and release what does not, replacing with skills which enhance life.

Seeking therapy can be both a daunting process, and one step toward greater wholeness/healing. Relationship is where we are both wounded and healed. I work with individuals seeking relief from distressing symptoms such as; demanding too much of yourself, finding it hard to trust self, your experience, your mind, self-soothing through addictive behaviors, pleasing others at your own expense, anxiety, depression, PTSD. Our patterns of relating develop early within our first attachments, so our journey might include visiting some of those relationships to wonder how they impact you in the here and now.

I know you. You can put on a happy face and convince the world that everything is just fine, but behind your smile is a belief that you are not good enough. You know how to stay hidden in plain sight without exposing your authentic self. The downside? It’s exhausting. You are constantly fighting with yourself, wondering if what you said was “weird” or "too much", believing that other people are judging you as harshly as you judge yourself. You’ve come to believe that you are somehow deficient or unworthy, which pushes you to either over achieve or hide away.

My therapeutic philosophy is simple: you are not broken but impacted by the experiences of your life which have resulted in a foundation that has left you feeling shaky or uncertain. with each challenge in life, you may feel as though you are falling apart, losing hope, as though you do not belong, or even feel unworthy of the love you deserve; however, with hope, patience, and self-perseverance, you can find a way to hold yourself together, to stand tall, firm, and trust that your foundation will support you—ultimately, you will begin to believe in yourself.

People come to therapy for many reasons. When we are in pain, confusion, fear or sadness we seek support and understanding. Sometimes we are going through a difficult transition and just need someone to talk to. Other times, we have specific goals we would like to reach, or coping skills we would like to learn. The therapeutic process is a creative and compassionate practice that is based in the respect and safety of the relationship between the client and the therapist. Challenges are often opportunities for growth, and often lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves.

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

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