    About Me and How I Can Help

    You’re stuck in a cycle of relationships that make you feel confused, depressed, and guilty. You often feel blamed and responsible for every argument. You ask yourself “Am I the narcissist?”

    You describe yourself as a perfectionist and most days feel capable of handling anything. However, some days, you’re too stressed, scared, or overwhelmed to cope. You get forgetful or have brain fog and become even more frustrated with yourself. You feel irritable with those around you and then mad at yourself for snapping. Guilt and shame are emotions you are all too familiar with.

    I help individuals heal from trauma and narcissistic abuse. Through therapy, I can help you feel less shame and guilt and more hopeful about the future. You can learn to stop the cycle of narcissistic abuse, understand what’s blocking you from the life you want to live, and experience less worry.

    Counseling Approaches:

    Therapy can help you feel more confident and experience joy in relationships. I offer a combined approach including techniques and concepts from the following therapeutic models:

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR): EMDR helps you heal from past disturbing events by processing memories so that you feel less upset and triggered by them. EMDR can help you finally move past whatever has been holding you back from making positive changes in your life and relationships.

    Attachment Theory: A focus on understanding attachment and relational patterns developed in early childhood so that you can understand your current relationship patterns and learn how to break negative relationship cycles.

    Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT): A focus on acceptance of emotions and commitment to change so that you can begin to live a life and form relationships consistent with your values.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: A focus on recognizing unhelpful thoughts and turning these thoughts into more useful ways of thinking so that you can feel less worried and more hopeful about the future.

    Locations:
