I am always marveled by the resilience individuals exhibit in the midst of chaos. However, we tend to forget our strengths as we face hardships. Working in Crisis management, I am marveled at the resilience I have witnessed in those who have experienced trauma. Therefore I want to journey with individuals and help them to identify their hidden strengths and empower individuals so they can function to their fullest potential in society and be their authentic selves.

Anyone who is at least moderately motivated :-), has some level of awareness that they need help. More specifically, their issues, needs, and goals could range from struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, loneliness, relational conflict, grief/loss, overcoming the effects of past trauma, codependency, personal identity and purpose exploration, and the list goes on. They may not know what they want or why, perhaps, a change is needed or there is more potential available than they are accessing. I want to be one of the people to help walk with them through this process of self discovery.

My preferred clients are abuse survivors, individuals within narcissistic relationships (parental or romantic relationships), and those whom have suffered an affair.
OPEN FOR NEW CLIENTS!! Are you carrying things with you that are affecting your everyday life; your work, your relationships, home life, parenting, your reactions, concentration, intrusive thoughts? You do not need to carry these things with you every day. They are weighing you down, and it is time for you to reset yourself. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Your particular needs determine which type of therapy works best. When working with couples and families I take a systemic approach. I view the "system" or interactions among one another as being faulty, not any particular individual.

I bring to my work a lifetime of experience with many different people in many different circumstances. My early life experience as a registered nurse enriches me as a psychologist and provides me with a unique perspective in navigating the path towards healing. I believe that the psyche holds within itself the power to heal, but our egos often get in the way. Through the struggles of life, we can lose contact with our own deep well of inner wisdom. My focus is on helping individuals develop the tools to re-connect with their true vital selves and restore balance.

If you ever go home feeling like you just can’t shake what you saw on a call, at work, throughout a career, or in life, I can help. You want to find a sense of peace. To feel whole again. Maybe you feel a bit lost and unrecognizable to yourself. You want to feel understood. You want to feel like you matter. You tell yourself “no one else could possibly get it.” If you find yourself more irritable and angrier with the people you love and care about, I can help. If you ever feel like there are pieces of yourself you’ve lost, I want to partner with you to find them.

I am a psychoanalyst and licensed psychologist with a practice focused on helping people live fuller, happier lives. Oftentimes, people may look fine on the outside, yet feel longstanding dissatisfaction and unhappiness on the inside. Many therapies and therapists take a directive approach to treatment, focused on telling a person how to reduce their symptoms of distress through specific recommendations. However, many people seek my services when their symptoms return after completing such treatments, as they continue to find themselves in unhappy patterns and emotional unrest.

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.
