You would like to go through your day without anxiety. You don’t want to have a pit in your stomach or cry alone in your closet while your heart breaks. You are likely trying to make sense all the intense and difficult feelings you are having in a relationship with someone who you believe is a narcissist. Anxiety, pain and suffering is most likely your reality if you are living with a narcissist. You may have recognized a pattern of personal crises in your relationship but you never fully understood the reasons until now. You may find yourself playing and re-playing in your head all the moments of narcissistic abuse.
A crisis is defined as a “dangerous opportunity” and while it may be extremely difficult to feel hopeful about the future right now, out of crisis you do have opportunity to have something different: a full and happy life, without constant emotional pain and anxiety. I whole heartedly believe you have the opportunity to heal from the abuse, find joy and feel the freedom, empowerment and love that are a natural result of being in healthy relationships.
Many people don’t know or understand what narcissistic abuse is. A lot of counselors don’t even understand what it is!
I get what it’s like to be in a relationship with a narcissist not only because of the courageous women and men I have helped over the years but because I’ve lived it as well. I have over 10 years of experience working with people who have experienced abuse and trauma. I have been trained in and have experience providing several different evidence based mental health treatment therapies such as DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy), TFCBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), and Seeking Safety. I am available for in person counseling at my practice in Edmond, OK and I am also available for technology assisted counseling through secure video conferencing for people who live in Oklahoma. Reach out by calling me or sending me a quick email. I would love to talk to you about where you are in your healing journey and what your needs are now.
