Throughout our journey in life, we endure countless challenges, hardships, and the list is endless. During these times in our life, we may encounter the inability to see the light at the end of the tunnel, repair the broken pieces, and feel as though we have nowhere or no-one to turn to. My perspective is that throughout our journey in life, each of us have internal tools to make changes, heal, prosper, to recognize the strengths, potential, and growth that we are all capable of and deserve. I firmly believe in a person-centered approach, where acceptance, understanding, and empathy are the foundation of therapy.

You are hard wired for connection. No matter the story you learned during your ‘how to human’ lessons-your brain literally needs deep, meaningful connections with other humans. And by being on this page, you and I both know that something you have learned in your journey up until this point is now in contrast with some vital aspect of your life and you are experiencing conflict. And this thing, this person, this job, whatever it is, it motivates you enough to think that perhaps there really could be a different narrative. And that hope, inspires you to wonder what I, Kristen Sanchez, could do to help.

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.
