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.

I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology at Yeshiva University and psychoanalytic training at New York University. I have been in private practice for over 35 years, treating adolescents and adults. Most of the people I see, seek treatment to get help with difficulties in relationships. In psychotherapy, we identify repetitive patterns that interfere with the initiation and/or maintenance of intimate relationships. I also work with people who experience anxiety or depressive states.

There is enormous opportunity to improve your life by understanding how the past has affected your current perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and actions. If you're feeling anxious or depressed, struggling in your relationships, or finding that your life, which appears to be okay from the outside, has left you unfulfilled, know that you can move past the pain, frustration, lack of direction, self-doubt. Beginning therapy can be daunting but immensely rewarding. There is no reason to settle for mediocrity or pain. However hard it might be to imagine now, post-traumatic growth is truly possible.

Choosing a new therapist can be intimidating, whether it’s your first time or you’ve been in therapy forever. I respect this and try to make the process of starting therapy one that feels as comfortable as possible from our first session. I believe the most important part of being human is our ability to empathize with others, and therapy should be a space where we can tell our story and truly feel heard, understood, and validated.

We all have the fundamental need to grow into and express who we are meant to be. However, this natural process can be inhibited by our need to adapt to pressures of family and society, by trauma, or by seemingly unresolvable contradictions in our personality. The goal of therapy is to bring this latent process to life, and to make it more conscious. A good therapeutic relationship will help you to be more receptive to yourself and to notice and honor these inner workings.

I believe that our mental health is grounded in the social contexts where we live. It is normal to struggle at times, and psychotherapy is a beautiful way to heal; to connect and reconnect with oneself and others; and to gain essential support. From my own experience I am certain of therapy’s deeply healing potential. I have personal and working experience in gender-based violence, anti-racism, anxiety and LGBTQ+ lives. My therapy is feminist, queer-friendly, anti-racist and trauma-informed, and draws from mindfulness practice.

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.
