It is a fact that most mental health professionals do not understand the depths of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and have definitely not be trained to treat the survivors and victims of it.
To the contrary, our founder Shaliss Padilla, MA, LMFT specializes in NPD, Narcissistic Abuse Syndrome and Narcissistic Abuse Recovery for the survivors and victims of abuse by individuals and/or families with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
As a survivor of narcissistic abuse herself, she has the personal and very hands on experience, of recovery and healing, from the pain of being Narcissistically abused. As such she holds other victims of this type of abuse near and dear to her heart. She also understands the magnitude of NPD academically, and as presented by the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), as well as described in internet pop culture.
Due to her years of training and her own experiences healing from this type of abuse, she knows exactly how to go about the business of getting one’s life back effectively and permanently.
