It is difficult to truly understand the complexities of Narcissistic Abuse unless you have experienced it first hand or are close to someone who has. The journey out of this nightmarish experience can feel completely overwhelming. I get it.
As a Licensed Mental Health professional, who spent much of my career working in the field of Gender-Based Violence, I thought I understood clearly, the dynamics of dysfunctional relationships. Until, I fell in love (or what I thought was love) with a narcissist. What we often do not realize while we are going through it, is that there IS light at the end of the tunnel and that this tunnel is leading us to a much deeper relationship with ourselves.

Making the decision to seek professional support from a trained professional was the catalyst that really helped me break free. Years later, I can reflect on this experience with clarity and wisdom. I have dedicated a large part of my practice to helping others navigate this tough terrain and re-build a healthy relationship with the wounded parts of their hearts that are destined to grow and thrive. Believe me, it does get better!
If you or someone you know is suffering through Narcissistic Abuse, please take the first step and reach out for support. You are not alone.
