I specialize in working with adult survivors of narcissistic, borderline, or antisocial (psychopathic) parents. I also work with people struggling with partners who have these disorders. As a result of this work, I am also skilled in working with trauma. I can help you learn to live without fear, understand your emotions better, and manage your trauma symptoms instead of the managing you. Life is too short to live in fear, to be continually overwhelmed by your emotions, or to be stuck in toxic relationships. I can help you find your way out.

Someone who listens and hears. Someone who may have experienced something similar or worked with a similar issue. Someone who will walk with us through the challenges we are facing. That is what therapy is here for. Are you ready?

I have also helped many people heal from narcissistic abusive relationships, sexual assault, anxiety and depression.
I do not shy away from clients who are truly frustrated with life and not sure how to continue on the journey alone. This planet is a tough one to be on right now and a therapeutic relationship can be a saving grace. No matter what the issue, I help clients tap into their own intuition as well as my professional insight to move matters forward. I typically explore body-mind constructs and stay curious about how the concept of energy plays into every day life. I believe trauma is a predecessor to many mental health issues, so I'm always focused on creating a safe place to explore healing the mind and body.

Edward’s University and have over 10 years of experience as an LPC specializing in the challenges of adult and teen ADHD, PTSD, OCD, borderline and narcissistic personality disorders, relationship conflict, and eating disorders.
What is therapy? Across all stages of life, we are faced with struggles and challenges that can hold us back. Challenges can vary from everyday difficulties with focus & organization at school or work, to disordered eating, or even recovering from traumatic memories or abusive relationships - any of these can create frustration, isolation, anger at ourselves, and sadness. My favorite therapy related quote is by poet Nayyirah Waheed: “There is you and you. This is a relationship. This is the most important relationship.” Therapy is about investing time in learning how to tackle problems and how to be your biggest supporter.

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.
