My clients have seen life-changing results since I began using Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model in 2011. Being raised in a toxic environment by a narcissistic parent creates significant emotional distress. It is my goal to help you work through Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model and accept your mother’s limitations, grieve the loss of the mother you wish you had, individuate/separate, become your authentic self, create healthy boundaries with family members and stop the legacy of distorted love.
Accepting that your parent is narcissistic is painful and confusing. If you are not taught to listen to your feelings or establish healthy boundaries, you can repeat a pattern of attracting and sustaining relationships with abusive partners. It is important to work through the many internal messages created in childhood which can impact you as an adult.
I have received thorough training in Dr. McBride’s 5 step recovery model which includes a 3 day workshop with daughters and therapists, completing online training, completing a 2 day workshop for therapists and receiving Dr. McBride’s highest level of certification. In addition, my office is located down the hall from Dr. McBride where I am able to consult with her.
I am available to meet with you in person in Colorado. I am also available to meet with you online in Colorado, Oregon, and Internationally (most countries). I am Board Certified in TeleMental Health (BC-TMH). I use doxy.me when meeting online. This is a secure, encrypted video conferencing platform that is HIPAA compliant and GDPR compliant. I am not on the HCPC registry.
My hope is to empower you to have the courage to create change, heal, establish healthy relationships and become your true authentic self.
