Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see your smile, your shining eyes, the incredible qualities that you bring to your life? Or do you see the “bad” traits? The traits that were projected there by someone else–a partner, or maybe even your parent. That you are lazy, stupid, too heavy, or maybe even not good enough. How do you feel about the face looking back at you? Do you feel pride? Or do you feel shame? Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Is it you? Or is it someone else entirely?
How do we recover from perhaps a lifetime of emotional and narcissistic abuse? I specialize in treating adult children of narcissistic parents, as well as folks struggling with identity and body image issues. I can support you in developing your inner strengths so that when you look in the mirror it will be your true self starring back at you.
Utilizing resources such as the five-step recovery method popularized by Dr. McBride (author of “Will I Ever Be Good Enough”), we will begin to process all of the phases that come with having a narcissistic parent so that we may emerge on the other side with the tools that we need to move forward.
