Seeking therapy can be a daunting process, while also being one step toward greater wholeness/healing. Relationship is where we are both wounded and healed. I work with individuals seeking relief from distressing symptoms such as; demanding too much of yourself, finding it hard to trust self, your experience, your mind, self-soothing through addictive behaviors, pleasing others at your own expense, anxiety, depression, PTSD. Our patterns of relating develop early within our first attachments, so our journey might include visiting some of those relationships to wonder how they impact you in the here and now.

You're here because you can't do it alone anymore. You need help to shake the stuck feeling and wonder if depression, anxiety, co-dependency [or insert struggle of choice] are winning this battle. You try to quit old habits and form healthier habits, but to no avail. You want to be in relationships that build you up but, more often than not, you feel doubt. Your self-esteem is in question. You don't feel like yourself anymore... whoever that may be. It's time to find help that will really move you out of this stuck place.

People come to therapy for many reasons. When we are in pain, confusion, fear or sadness we seek support and understanding. Sometimes we are going through a difficult transition and just need someone to talk to. Other times, we have specific goals we would like to reach, or coping skills we would like to learn. The therapeutic process is a creative and compassionate practice that is based in the respect and safety of the relationship between the client and the therapist. Challenges are often opportunities for growth, and often lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves.

Therapy is a commitment to journey into the self that is more circular than linear. The first rung is awareness. Before we examine ourselves and our lives we must become aware of our thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Otherwise, we live at a reactive and habitual level. The second rung is understanding these patterns woven through our lives; because it is always larger than the given moment. I call it our mental landscape. And, finally acceptance with clarity and truth. When we accept ourselves and our history with compassion we conscientiously make the changes in our lives that resonate at a deep and true-self level.

I am licensed in Washington State and I work with adult children, partners and siblings of individuals with Narcissistic and Borderline Personality Disorder traits. It can be difficult to find a therapist who truly understands the impact and wounds of being raised in a home or being in a relationship with someone who has narcissistic traits or borderline traits. My work includes creating a healthy psychological separation, changing the negative internal messages, learning how to respond to others, creating healthy boundaries, stopping the legacy of distorted love and becoming your true and authentic self.

I am still accepting individuals interested in the group for adult daughters of narcissistic parents.
We seek help when an issue arises that we can’t seem to get through. In relationships, we might find ourselves having the same argument with our partner or loved one over and over again. Maybe there’s an internal struggle we’ve tried to solve by reading self-help books or talking to our closest friends, only to find the problem is still a problem. That’s where I can help. Together we’ll identify goals and collaborate on a treatment plan. The beginning of any journey or change begins with acceptance, the proper treatment, and a healthier connection with ourselves and the world around us.

Mental health is varied and complex. Emotional pain can be overwhelming, frustrating, and confusing. Each person is unique and brings their own set of circumstances, their own past, thoughts, and experience to therapy. I see people who struggle from a variety of issues and symptoms. Some of these include depression, anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia, frustration, academic or work difficulties, relationship issues, communication issues, poor concentration and attention, sexual issues, and grief. This list is incomplete, but hopefully it opens up the range of things that can be talked about in therapy and worked with over time.

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.
