"Many who seek therapy are the most psychologically healthy in their relationships or family. This is especially true for those in relationship to a narcissistically abusive partner or parent - both past or present. I specialize in helping such people recover their self-worth after narcissistic abuse. We work in therapy to identify and free you from the underlying beliefs that can seep in as a victim of such abuse. For example, you get to find out that your needs are as important as others and that you deserve protection in relationships. Common symptoms of such abuse also get addressed - like anxiety or depression."
