Therapy for Adult Children of Narcissists
Send me blogs, news, and the Gaslighting 101 Mini!
Hi, I’m Amy Marlow-MaCoy.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and the author of The Gaslighting Recovery Workbook: Healing from Emotional Abuse. My pronouns are she/her/hers.
I help teens and adults feel more confident, develop healthier relationships, and speak their Truth without shame. Whether you're getting ready to leave for college, muddling through the realities of adult life, or wanting to break a cycle of damaging relationship patterns and start a new way of living and loving, I can help.
During our work together, I will support you in claiming your strengths, talents, and resiliency. I know you can heal, and I am here to help you.
With my own blend of deep listening, empathy, and nerdy humor, I help you connect to the parts of you that felt lost so that you can find your true Self again.
I welcome and affirm diversity, including all body sizes, abilities, races, sexualities, genders, and religions. As a person and a clinician I strive to be actively antiracist, anti body shaming and fatphobia, and to support and validate all sexual and gender identities.
Therapy for Teens
Teens are some of the most vibrant, passionate, and open-hearted souls around – and they can also become anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, and withdrawn. I work with teen girls to help them balance being creative, high achievers with practicing self-care and developing healthy relationships.
Therapy for Adults
Growing up with narcissistic, toxic, or emotionally immature parents is a unique and challenging experience. When you've had to be an adult since childhood, it can be hard to ask for help. I specialize in supporting Adult Children of Narcissists in recovering and healing from the pain of a dysfunctional family of origin.
When you feel like the only one who's struggled to rebuild in the aftermath of emotional abuse, free yourself from shame and guilt, or set boundaries without feeling like a jerk, the loneliness can be devastating. Group therapy offers a powerful counter-message to the feeling of being alone and isolated. Stop struggling alone, and become part of a community that says “I've been there too.”
The first few years as a therapist can be tough. Good supervision can help you prevent burnout, deepen your clinical work, and build your skills as a therapist. I provide affordable, effective, and empathetic supervision for new professionals pursuing licensure as an LPC or LCSW.
