With a Masters Degree of Social Work from NYU, I specialize in supporting adults through relationship challenges, narcissistic abuse, life transitions, anxiety, and depression.
The experience of sharing stories, and feeling seen & heard in a safe space can be transformative.

Beyond the traditional modalities, I take a holistic approach with each client and believe in the power of integrating emotional, physical, social and spiritual wellbeing.

In my wholistic approach to helping folks heal from betrayal trauma and the residue of coercive control and narcissistic abuse, we will debrief your experience, gently make space for having all the hard feelings together and support you in learning how to be in and with your feelings in a supported, regulated manner to help you reestablish a sense of safety.
Perhaps you have come to realize you need support to cope with what some might term a high-conflict divorce or maybe you have come to feel that you are a shadow of your former self after a long-term painful relationship or maybe you are questioning whether or not you have been a victim of domestic abuse. These experiences could indicate that you have been a victim of coercive control, sometimes referred to as narcissistic abuse, a type of relational abuse that is increasingly common. If so, you are not alone. If so, you are likely in need of support, education and help in healing from betrayal trauma.

My final area of focus is psychological trauma and narcissistic abuse.
My practice consists of helping my clients become more effective actors in their lives. In the service of these goals, I teach them how to become better critical thinkers, (working together on creating healthy beliefs about themselves, others, and their environments), providing the mental tools required for emotional regulation and a fulfilling life. Additionally, we work together on understanding the past and present sources of troublesome behaviors and reducing them; this approach is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. And, I specialize in a form of CBT called Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), used to treat OCD.

I also have over eight years of experience successfully working with clients who experience recurring and persistent depression issues as well as individuals who may be suffering from narcissistic parenting and/or intergenerational trauma.
Trying to pick the right therapist can be a challenge. You can think of our first meeting more like a conversation, where we will go over what you are experiencing and how I can help you materialize your goals, values, and priorities. I offer a safe, comfortable, and compassionate space where we can explore how to reduce your suffering and help you get to where you want to be. For years, I have made it my purpose to help others resolve their internal pain and heartache. Although I tailor my approach for each client, I tend to consistently utilize EMDR, psychodynamic, gestalt, DBT, and narrative theoretical orientations.

Most therapy approaches focus on understanding ourselves intellectually, thereby engaging the left side of our brain. Yet, sustainable change happens through whole-mind integration, where the body, brain, as well as relational field are parts of the healing process. Using a blend of Somatic Experiencing®, Trauma and Attachment Therapy, Depth Psychology, and Dream Analysis, Somatic Counseling offers the body and psyche the support needed to discharge, renegotiate and reorganize locked-in fight, flight and freeze responses that are stored in the nervous system. A process that is compassionate and respectful to your needs and rhythm.

Change can be intimidating. We develop methods of coping that, at one time, perhaps helped to survive, but now prevent us from ultimately thriving. This can manifest in our relationship patterns and our mood, causing disruption in work, love, family, friendships and a healthy identity. My approach to therapy is rooted in helping clients develop a deeper understanding of these patterns and effecting change and empowerment through insight, support, and challenging maladaptive beliefs.

If you feel hopeless, I will hold hope for you. If you feel helpless, I will remind you of how strong you are even if you don't feel strong in the moment. We all struggle to let go of our past, maybe an imperfect childhood or a traumatic romantic relationship. We all want a second chance to create the life we were supposed to have. Change is painful. And you may have to walk away from something, or someone, who no longer serves you.

Often when we are struggling with a concern or difficulty in living, we can't help but feel as if we are stuck in a pattern that feels too daunting to make our way out of, even if we have a sense of what it takes to live differently. These patterns frequently maintain themselves in large part because of a lack of resources -- whether it is time, strained relationships, or unmet needs. Attempting to regain these resources can be difficult if done alone.

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.
