Therapy Issues

Narcissistic Abuse

Right now, as a result of the narcissistic abuse you’ve gone through, you may be experiencing…

  • A sense of disorientation, not knowing what’s real and what’s unreal.
  • Self-doubt, not knowing if you can trust your own mind and experiences.
  • Low self-esteem and critical inner voices.
  • Poor boundaries and challenges standing up for yourself.

You’re realizing that the narcissistic abuse you went through is getting in the way of your life…

  • You can’t seem to think well of yourself anymore. 
  • The relationships you seem to attract into your life don’t feel healthy and supportive.
  • You’re coping with your painful feelings in self-sabotaging ways but you don’t know what else to do.
  • You have triggers and flashbacks to moments when you were humiliated, shamed, or screamed at. 
  • You feel isolated from others, not wanting to let anyone know what’s really been going on.

You’re wondering…

  • Is what I went through actually narcissistic abuse? What even is narcissistic abuse?
  • How did I let myself get into that situation? How do I make sure I never get into that situation again?
  • I can’t talk to anyone about what I’ve been through; it’s too embarrassing. Is what I say in therapy confidential?
  • Can I even trust my experiences and feelings about what happened?
  • Can trauma therapy actually help me recover from narcissistic abuse?

You’re longing for…

  • The ability to trust yourself and not second guess your experiences, thoughts, and perceptions of what you went through.
  • The skills and tools to have strong, self-protective boundaries to keep narcissists out of your life.
  • To actually feel good about yourself again, like your old self. 
  • Relief from the depression, anxiety, and self-hatred you’ve been dealing with.
  • Confidence and self-esteem, despite what that person said and did.

What you’re longing for is possible.

At Evergreen Counseling, we have a staff of seasoned, evidence-based therapists skilled in treating narcissistic abuse.
