People heal from narcissistic abuse. But it is hard work. And it takes a good amount of time, with a skilled, trained, ethical, trauma-informed psychotherapist. Healing is very complex but very possible. I have had the honor and privilege of bearing witness to many survivors move into a place of thriving in their lives — when they reclaimed their power and pulled some very persnickety weeds…their garden of life opened up to new, healthy growth and healing. I am one lucky woman to be able to see before my very eyes that kind of personal strength and fortitude that my clients near and far manifest as they heal. The saying, “sometimes things fall apart before they can be reassembled” is very apropos. And in the reassembly, the new construction of healing often times generates an even healthier and more whole person, thriving in the new chapter of their life.
