Thank you for allowing me to list you as a resource on my website, every day I get dozens of emails from all over the world with people asking me is there a therapist in their area and thanks to you I can now say YES! Many of the therapists/coaches have called me to thank me for the number of people they get from my website and that makes me so happy – it means people ARE getting the much-needed support they need. I have been building this resource website for almost three years now and people are coming and honestly, the numbers are consistent and outperforming anything I could have ever imagined. I think Google likes it because my original idea was to make it not about ‘me’ but a global resource where they can find help. Today I got emails from survivors in Sweden, Germany, England, and Egypt. (cool right) If I had resources in those countries they would be answering the phone right now. Bookmark this page as it will never be shown to the public – I want to create a therapist resource area.
I may be a great marketer and website design person to build this, but my weakness is in writing blogs. When I first started this my intention was to have an ‘Elephant Journal’ type of blog where people could contribute articles. This is where you come in, you are the experts and many of you have blogs or write for websites like Elephant Journal. I would love to feature an article that you write on my blog, it needs to be well written as I have no editors or staff but any topic that would interest our audience would be happily accepted. All articles will remain yours, I will add your Bio, and a link back to your website and I will link the article to your profile on this site so people can read some of your work. With the amount of traffic, I get this link back to your website could give you great link juice to the google bots. If the article is powerful enough that other therapists might like to have it as a resource you could be selected to be in the section below of article resources. My favorite saying is ‘Together we heal’ and with a cooperative blog we can help more victims become surTHRIVERS!
Please email me at email@example.com to submit an article.
I have created these worksheets and people can download them off my site. I wanted to make them more easily available to you to have you use as a tool for your clients. The red flag checklist gets downloaded about 100 times a day!! So please save them, print them and share them.

Even if you are coaching and doing therapy with a survivor, I have found nothing better than the feeling that ‘they are not alone’ and chatting with people that understand because they are living through the same thing. I lead two local in-person support groups here in Colorado and it’s in that community that really helps victims become empowered to find community. As we know their friends and family do not understand and this leaves them very isolated. I would like to say there are hundreds of support groups all over the country, but sadly I think the number is less than 100. I have gathered these groups in one place and have them listed by state on my resource page.
I have spoken with many of the meetup leaders and some are peer-led like my group’s while others are run by therapists. It’s in this community that will find a safe place to learn and share their stories. Review the list and see if there are groups in your area and share this info with your clients.
Narcissist Abuse Support has its own Facebook group with almost 5000 members and nine admins that help me run it. If your client is needing that extra validation and there is no local group for them, you can suggest our group. My team works hard to screen the members and keep everyone playing nicely.
Therapist Article Resources
This section is a place where I have taken some of the best articles and created a PDF without menus or sidebars so you can use them in your own practice to give as a resource to your clients. Feel free to download and share. The reason I am creating this is that the first therapist I went to handed out printouts of articles which I thought was great and it got me started with what I needed to learn at the time, the downfall was they were printouts with all those distractions like the menu and even ads. This is a new section and I have approached many resources to get permission to share these with you so come back often because I have big plans.
