Therapy is Dandy, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland
I help people come to terms with difficult relationships that they may have with their family of origin. Identifying and learning new ways to cope with toxic, difficult family members is a very difficult task to attempt on one's own. Our own happiness suffers as a result of these problematic, often one sided relationships. We may become out of touch with our feelings, our own needs, and any effective way to communicate these concerns. I specialize in working with people who want confidence and agency in their relationships, not pain.
I have been working specifically with clients who are struggling to come to terms with difficult, toxic individuals--narcissists. Whether you are married to one, have one (or more) as a parent, as a boss, a friend, or loved one, narcissists can make you doubt yourself and your own needs.
Rather than pathologize you and your situation, rather than making you feel more like a number than a human being, I believe therapy is not only a healthy and positive choice, but a stylish, life affirming venture. Your life-your great adventure-should be a glorious and fulfilling one.
