Narcissistic abuse is an insidious form of emotional and psychological abuse that can leave long-lasting scars on its victims. Survivors of narcissistic abuse often experience feelings of confusion, invalidation, and powerlessness, as their abusers exploit their vulnerabilities for their own gain. Recovering from narcissistic abuse is a difficult and ongoing process, but it is possible with the right support. Seeking therapy, practicing self-care, and cultivating self-compassion are crucial in healing from narcissistic abuse. It's important for survivors to acknowledge their pain, set boundaries, and prioritize their own well-being to regain their sense of self-worth and personal power.
The impact of trauma can be overwhelming, leaving individuals feeling afraid and powerless. My evidence-based treatments for trauma and PTSD are designed to support individuals in processing challenging emotions and thoughts, easing distressing symptoms, and enhancing their overall wellbeing. With a compassionate and personalized approach, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them regain a sense of control and move towards a more fulfilling life.
Codependency is a behavioral pattern characterized by an excessive reliance on others for approval and self-esteem. It often involves prioritizing the needs and wants of others over one's own, to the point of neglecting one's own needs. Recovery from codependent behavior can be a challenging process, but it's crucial for achieving healthier relationships and overall well-being. It involves recognizing and challenging unhealthy patterns, developing healthier boundaries and communication skills, practicing self-care, and seeking support through therapy or support groups. With a commitment to self-awareness and personal growth, individuals can overcome codependency and cultivate more fulfilling relationships with themselves and others.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can be an overwhelming and debilitating condition that can impact various aspects of daily life. Fortunately, there are evidence-based treatments available that have shown to be effective in managing OCD symptoms. Exposure and response prevention (ERP) and Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are two such treatments that have been shown to be effective. ERP involves gradually exposing the individual to the feared object or situation and preventing the compulsive behavior that typically follows. I-CBT focuses on identifying and correcting the inferential confusion that leads to inaccurate thinking. Working with a trained therapist committing to these evidence-based treatments can help individuals with OCD learn to manage their symptoms and significantly improve their quality of life.
