I specialize in working with individuals either currently involved in or recovering from narcissistic abuse. I have taken DV 101 Training through New Beginnings Domestic Violence Center in Seattle, WA, Family Law for the Mental Health Professional from Joseph Shaub, MA, JD in Bellevue, WA, and Sexual Assault Training though the Providence Hospital. Additionally, I have over 2 years of experience through community mental health working with both survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence.
If you are a people pleaser or put others needs above your own there's a good chance that you are struggling with codependent behavior. Codependents put all of their energy into taking care of others often at their own expense and with little in return. This kind of behavior is also common in relationships where domestic violence is involved. I am a recovering codependent and I can help you to identify some of these behaviors and work towards being more assertive.
