I had a psychology practice in Austin for 20 years, relocating to Albuquerque in 2012. As an outgrowth of my continuing work with clients from Texas, I have developed a specialty in providing internet therapy. My specialties include eating disorders, complex mood disorders, personality disorders, recovery from narcissistic abuse, and helping families with "failure to launch" young adults. I also provide consultation to parents who are struggling with an oppositional adolescent or an adult child with ongoing difficulties. I provide both therapeutic and forensic psychological evaluations.

I hope you know that you don’t have to suffer alone. When you’ve been traumatized by narcissistic abuse, it feels like no one understands. It might feel like you are alone in this world. You certainly do not have to go through your pain alone. You may have endured invalidation, gaslighting, destructive criticism, family estrangement, insults to your character, or were abandoned in plain sight. As a trauma survivor and 15 years of no contact, I recognize the importance of support while doing the work of gaining insight, grief, acceptance, change, and healing. Readiness for change is hard, but it's the only way to overcome.

I have experience working with individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, grief, relationship issues, and narcissistic abuse.
Life can seem overwhelming at times which can make it difficult to believe that happiness is possible or that goals are unattainable. It can be difficult to understand why there seems to be a constant feeling of sadness and hopelessness and not knowing where it is coming from or what is triggering the feelings. It is okay not to be okay but it is not okay to remain stuck there. We are all unique and valuable and deserve respect and kindness. I also believe that it is important for our feelings to be heard and validated.

I specialize in PTSD, dissociative disorders (testing and treatment), FND conversion/functional neurological disorders, women's issues, domestic violence, traumatic break-ups, cult defection, narcissistic abuse, and codependency.
Trauma is often weaved in and through the fabric of our lives. Many think of trauma as one large scale traumatic event. However, complex trauma is not always a single event. It could be a failed attachment to our care takers, experiencing abuse/neglect, multiple losses, shattered relationships, or the inability to protect ourselves emotionally with healthy boundaries. The most disturbing part of a trauma is not only the event itself, but how we perceived the event, and the internalized negative core beliefs about ourselves that developed.

With special training in high conflict personalities, I have seen a dramatic increase in clientele who are struggling with spouses, parents and bosses exhibiting traits of narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder and other related personality disorders.
I hear many accounts of people, especially 25-45, feeling overwhelmed with busy lives, feeling numb, trapped or unfulfilled. Sometimes these feelings have lead to out of control behaviors, shame and guilt. Fear of letting others down or failing to meet the perceived standards of our culture can cause the best of us to feel trapped in a spin cycle. I try to provide my clients with a safe, non-judgmental, objective environment to face their fears, feelings and struggles in order to make the way for new thinking and more positive behaviors.

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.
