Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Were you raised by a mother who cared more for herself than she did for you? Was she overly critical except when you reflected well upon her? Did you lack the experience of genuine maternal nurturing? If so, you may be the daughter of a narcissistic mother. As a result, you may hide or deny your pain, become involved in unhealthy intimate relationships and/or love addictions, overachieve (feel like an impostor) or self-sabotage. You may suffer from depression, anxiety or phobias. "Will I ever be good enough?" is a question that may have plagued your life for as long as you can remember. I have over 25 years experience treating daughters of narcissistic parents. I am certified in Dr. Karol McBride's 5 step model for recovery and use EMDR to clear trauma in order to liberate the self doubt, guilt and emptiness caused by narcissistic abuse. My own journey and recovery from a narcissistic parent has given me the understanding and passion needed to help others. My goal is to create a safe, nurturing environment in which to heal.
