Being able to ask for help takes a lot of courage. So, first and foremost, let me commend you for taking these first steps in the therapeutic process. I believe therapy is so important because while life can be incredibly beautiful, it can also be confusing, lonely and bleak. My job is to help you tackle the emotional obstacles that are hindering you from enjoying the life that you want and deserve.

Who is your outlet? What is your story? You are not a diagnosis but you likely have a root issue of imperfect love. My desire is to see others live their full or whole life rather than in parts and broken pieces. You're not broken. There is hope, I teach you how to see colors rather than B&W. I see many clients who have experienced narcissistic (psychological) abuse among other symptoms. I'm interested in how abuse and/or neglect have impacted where you're at today. If you have had a negative experience with another therapist, family member(s) or the church, I would like the chance to free you from your defenses and earn your trust.

Will I ever be good enough?....Maybe I AM the crazy one?... Have you had these thoughts? Are you anxious, depressed, a chronic people pleaser? Have your "loved ones" blamed you for "everything that is wrong"? Do you hate the way they act around you, but then a few memories of when they were nice make you feel guilty for having those thoughts (cognitive dissonance)? This is all normal if you have experienced narcissistic abuse or emotionally immature parents. This is where I come in. Healing is a real possibility. You deserve it and I'm dedicated to helping you move from surviving to thriving!

These days, many of the people with whom I form a therapeutic relationship are those who have been unsatisfied with prior therapy efforts. In addition, I often work with mental health and medical professionals and their families, as well as persons employed in academia. That said, I enjoy sorting out all sorts of relationship difficulties and the underlying personality issues. In terms of patient populations, I work with individual adults and couples, upset teens and young adults. I am a fully trained psychoanalyst, as well, so I am comfortable with very intimate work, often using the couch. Commitment is a two-way street.

While every counseling experience is unique, the team at Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute (PPI) seeks to provide an empathetic relationship in which individuals and families can safely and freely discuss their challenges and concerns in a holistic context carefully considering the mind, body, and soul in therapy. This is also a "person-centered" process in which the client determines the areas of exploration and discovery.

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.
