  • Women's Narcissictic abuse survivors group

    This support group offers a safe and confidential atmosphere for women affected by Narcissism.  Narcissism is a specific type of domestic abuse.  The group does focus on this aspect, buy anyone in, or having been in a domestically abusive relationship is welcome to join.

    We come along side each other in the journey to hope and wellness through openly processing our own experiences in a non-threatening environment free from judgment and minimization.  The goals for each woman may be different.  However, my goal as the therapist, is that all will experience validation in a manner they perhaps haven't experienced before.
