Narcissistic Abuse Recovery
Realizing that you are in a narcissistic relationship often feels both relieving and confusing. Regardless of who the narcissist is in your life, you might be wondering why this happened, how it happened, why you find it so difficult to end the relationship despite what you know, and how you can protect yourself going forward.
Trauma lives in the body. That's true for all trauma, including the kind that develops during childhood as a result of living with difficult or impossible conditions. If you are an adult who grow up with sexual, physical, or emotional abuse as a child, you are likely holding trauma in your body. If you feel like talking about your past isn't bringing you relief from symptoms, somatic therapy may be just the thing for you.
Romantic relationships hold the potential to be both the most rewarding and the most troubling relationships in life. Couples seek counseling for a variety of reasons: wanting to start, wanting to end, a specific issue to work through, dynamics that have become untenable, or just wanting something more or better from the relationship. Couples counseling is an opportunity to explore the possibilities in your relationship.
If I could share a few words that come to mind when working with Diana it would be: kind, compassionate, open, heard. I am grateful that over the course of numerous sessions with Diana I have been witnessed and heard. I have gently been given awareness around areas that I was holding resistance or fear around. Even with the long distance calls I felt a connection and an honoring of myself by Diana, that has helped me to heal on a deeper level of which I had not thought possible. I would highly recommend Diana on your own inner healing journey.
