Counseling for Narcissistic Abuse
Therapy Services for Adult Children of Narcissistic Parents
At Blue Couch Therapy, I incorporate the mind, body, and spirit in my holistic approach to mental and emotional healthcare. I empower women to break free from the generational trauma caused by narcissistic parents, helping them work through their life experiences and equipping them with the tools to make sustainable changes in their lives.
What Is a Narcissistic Parent?
A narcissistic parent is someone who perceives the independence of their child as a threat, a feeling that persists even when the child has grown into an adult. Narcissistic parents use manipulative methods to keep their child under their shadow and rarely show love to them just for being themselves. In fact, children of narcissistic parents often have their individuality diminished when they act independently and are instead coerced into a behavior that better serves the selfish needs of their parents. This denial of selfhood can lead to anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues that can affect future relationships for the adult child.
Possible Impacts of Narcissistic Abuse
Adult women of narcissistic mothers and fathers may:
- Believe their self-worth is dependent on how they act or what they do
- View emotionally distressing relationships as normal
- Struggle with setting healthy boundaries
- Mistrust their own thoughts and feelings
- Fail to recognize and maintain healthy romantic relationships
Breaking Free From Generational Trauma
At Blue Couch Therapy, I help adult women of narcissistic parents develop a more cohesive and stable sense of self. If any of the symptoms listed above ring true for your life experience, my therapy services can help you break free from the trauma and make meaningful changes so that you can foster healthy relationships—with yourself and others—and stop the cycle of narcissistic behavior toward your own children.
