My Approach to Helping
I'm a specialist in helping individuals recover from narcissistic abuse and break free from unhealthy relationship patterns holding them back in life.
During our work together, you can expect to learn: to rebuild your identity, self-trust, and confidence after narcissistic abuse, how to confidently set clear boundaries even if you’re a people pleaser and afraid to say no, why you keep giving chances to the wrong people over and over again and how to stop it once and for all, and how to process and heal the root cause of why you show up in disempowering ways - AKA what in your past is holding this dysfunctional pattern in place.
During our work together, I will be taking you through my proven process for healing the patterns (your blind spots) preventing you from having healthy relationships. In between your weekly sessions, you'll have access to my private messaging so you can receive support when triggers arise - AKA you run into your ex, have an argument with your mom, etc.
From someone who experienced narcissistic abuse and had unhealthy patterns myself, did the healing work needed, and turned counselor… I can tell you it is so worth the time and financial investment to heal and clear these patterns, so that you can have healthy communication with your future partners, friends, family, and your co-parenting.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Testimonial from 34 year old male client:
Prior to working with Angelica, I had numerous relationships consistently fail. From my perspective some were better than others. However, the outcome was always the same and after my most recent breakup I was left questioning everything.
After a week I started to reflect on my previous relationships and really look inward; I came to realize ?there was one common denominator in all of those relationships, me. I asked myself how could a handful of relationships spanning over 10 years, with different women, at different stages of their lives, all end in a very similar way? I became aware of a pattern that kept repeating itself and I was bringing something into these relationships that kept me stuck in an unhealthy cycle.?
I have worked with my two different therapists over this period of time trying to address these relationship issues I was having. At times, I thought I made progress and realized the mistakes I made or had grown enough to not have the same thing repeat itself. However, that was not the case; it was ultimately the same outcome in my last relationship. I don?t believe working in the traditional CBT model with my therapist was addressing the root cause of my issues and did not provide me with the coping skills I would realize id need to manage a healthy relationship.
Initially, I chose to work with Angelica because she specialized with the specific problems I was facing. Also, I could no longer continue repeating the same unhealthy relationship patterns. I knew there was something deeper going on and that I had a role primary role in this cycle. It affected every area of my life and I could not allow that to continue.?
Working with Angelica had provided me invaluable insight to the Issues I was facing. She has taught and helped me develop healthy coping skills and given me the tools and understanding necessary for me to possess and maintain a healthy relationship. Going into this work I knew there was something deeper going on, that had not been Identified previously. I knew it was something internal that I needed to work on.
Angelica, educated me and provided me answers that have allowed me to move forward, beyond previous barriers, in every aspect of my life.
