My name is Cathy. If you landed at this site, it could be that you were searching the web for help because someone important in your life wounded you. Chances it was ---your partner, parent, spouse, sibling, teenager, adult child, friend, or boss--chances are you had an encounter with an emotional vampire often referred to as a narcissist. or perhaps someone with a borderline personality. Do you feel bullied, manipulated, less than, out of control and overwhelmed, full of shame and guilt and are feeling that everything is all your fault? When you look back on how you become triggered you are aware that is only by certain individuals in certain situations, feeling like your feelings were ignored, what you had to say was discounted, poked and poked again with verbal put downs that triggered you to react in a way that is not the person you are in other situations? Sometimes these reactions and beliefs were encoded during childhood and we are responding to old hurts that somehow triggered us to react to people that tend to push our buttons and wound us again. Have you been made to believe that the problem is all with you being told "Stop it, Shut up," "There you go again. We were having a wonderful time until You Ruined It!? Have your feelings been repeatedly hurt, been challenged over and over with emotional "put downs, verbal attacks to areas where you are most vulnerable?"

The person with the borderline personality or the narcissist are highly skilled at showing people on the outside someone they truly are not on the inside. Until you have been thrown in the clutches of these individuals, you might perceive them as charming and fun to be around, supportive, caring and understanding. NOT! are masters of painting the picture and giving the impression of who they are; which in no way matches the reality of who they are behind a closed door. After trusting this person, letting your guard down, and being vulnerable with them you find they are not at all the person you were lead to believe they were. Often times their victims are not believed by others! This furthers the pain and damage done to the heart and soul of their victim. Many times family members, coworkers, friends, and collogues of the narcissist or borderline have a completely different picture or point of view of what happens to their victims when left alone with them. This is a big dilemma for the victims of narcissistic/borderline abuse.
If you have been through relationship abuse by a parent, friend, boss, colleague, family member, in law, your adult child/children, partner or spouse you might not know who to turn to for help. In 1974, I began helping others heal from abuse as a RN working in agencies, hospitals and treatment centers, I was at the bedside or running groups to help patients learning to cope with physical abuse and mental traumas. In 1994, I began my career as a Licensed Professional Counselor to help heal emotional wounds from trauma and abuse. I have countless continuing education hours focusing on Trauma and various methods of mental health treatment. I have been doing Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP since 1982 with a focus on weight loss, smoking cessation, and natural childbirth. My initial work as a therapist was in the areas of relationship enhancement, growing healthy families, play therapy, and the working with new parents and couples during the childbearing year. I returned to school and now have both secular and non-secular degrees with a non counseling related doctorate in the field of religious studies. I am an ordained minister. After my own experiences of trauma by people with borderline and narcissist personality disorders, the focus of my work shifted to helping others men/women and teens heal from the grips of emotional abusers. My focus now is teaching others how to love themselves at a soul level and to stop needing the approval of others that really do not want to build loving relationships with us. Narcissists use their words and actions to hurt us. I help others recognize the red flags and protect themselves from the masters and manipulators that find our areas of vulnerability and trigger us to react in ways that are not typical reactions for us. They then blame us make us feel like it is always our fault. These people tamper with our reality and make us question ourselves, our worthiness, and our own mental health. They can look you in the eye and lie, deny, blame, and hurt you to the core! Worst of all, sometimes we are addicted to these people and want to desperately please the and keep coming back hoping to get it right the next time just to receive crumbs of attention and longing to belong, be accepted, and receive their love and approval. If we have a different point of view, we are made to feel that we are inferior and not allowed or worthy enough to have our own opinion or point of view.
I am here to help you develop inner strength, gain awareness, knowledge, and understanding about how emotional abusers operate, the games that play, and the ways they pull you back in over and over and make you feel that all of the pain and heartache is your fault. Narcissists are experts at identifying your emotional wounds and directing their cruel and purposeful comments to trigger not only a reaction from you but to take jabs at your core wounds. They are masters at what they do! I am here to help you listen to that little voice within, not only see the red flags of danger, tap into that knowing that you know what you know and trust you intuition. We explore your family of origin, negative beliefs about yourself that were encoded in you as a child, we explore those core wounds, work on changing your point of view about yourself, spot, stop, and switch those negative patterns of self-talk, beliefs about yourself to allow you to heal, let go, and be all that you are meant to be. Learn to move from victim to a successful victor, living the life you deserve and desire. Learn how to stop attracting toxic romantic relationships and friendships. Learn how to cope with family members that trigger you. Believe in yourself and stop needing the approval and love from those that are not capable of loving you back! Break the addiction to your attraction for certain personality types that repeatedly hurt you over and over! See the red flags, listen to your intuition, spot, stop and switch from Victim to Victor.
My approach is Holistic, Mind, Body, Spirit. I have a strong background in metaphysics, the law of attraction, Jungian concepts, shadow work and shamanism . We explore the damage that that can happen in your body from surges of damaging stress hormones going though your body, loss of sleep, and the damage to your mind, psyche, heart and soul. It is common to feel like your "heart has been broken and soul has been murdered. "The pain that can be felt by with words and actions of a narcissist or borderline can take you to your knees in tears and deep sorrow and lead to self-hatred! Somatic therapy, healthy nutrition, compulsive eating, not eating, failure to exercise or exercising too much is discussed.
Many of my clients have symptoms of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), obsessive and intrusive thoughts, nightmares, fears, anxiety, stress, depression, panic, feelings of being overwhelmed, filled with guilt and shame, sweaty palms, feeling worthless and not good enough, avoiding going out in public, and having a loss of interest in personal care, not wanting to complete daily activities, or doing the things that once brought your pleasure as you continue to blame yourself and tell yourself that it is all your fault. Do you feel like you are spinning your wheels in the mud, feeling stuck, and getting nowhere? Do you not feel as 'grounded' as you would like to be? Are you always in your head, replaying situation after situation, and wish you could have responded differently? Do you feel like you will never measure up, be good enough, or deserving enough for the people/person that hurts you the most? You might be feeling a variety of post traumatic stress disorder symptoms. You have been going though an emotional nightmare and have been on an emotional roller coaster with someone you really care for and love and you may be still caught up in it!

Come work with me. We start by exploring what the typical behaviors of Narcissist Personality Disorder, What the Empath/Codependency Narcissist Syndrome Is, The dance between the empath and the narcissist, communication do's and don'ts with a narcissist, grief and loss, recovery and healing. It can be painful and emotionally draining to walk on eggshell, have no voice, no respect and perhaps loose you own identify and personal self-worth being in a relationship with a narcissist. Those feelings of being misunderstood, like it is all your fault, feeling off balance, a loss of control when you have had enough and reach your breaking point looking that you are the one with the problem ! Sometimes you might feel that there is never a resolution and things will never be right or ever be settled. You might still be waiting for that apology when your friend, partner or child told you that you are out of control and toxic because you confronted them with kindness and you had the audacity to challenge them and it Blew Up in Your Face! Again You are the Crazy One! Well you are probably not! The situation being in a toxic relationship can be overwhelming and can make you feel like you are indeed the crazy one, but it is often times the dance between the codependent/empath/HSP and the narcissist that is the problem usually.
I offer an integrative and holistic approach that incorporates healing the mind, body and spirit as you free yourself and heal from narcissist and relationship abuse. Online counseling, life coaching and hypnosis are offered Monday from 8 am to 8 pm Central Standard Time from the privacy of your own home, office, or preferred private spot. Zoom is my preferred platform for tele-counseling.
