I Grew Strong, LLC
Virtual program for survivors of toxic relationship (possibly with a narcissist)! We take our years of professional therapy experience & our own healing journeys to guide you through growth & change.
Hi there! It has taken us awhile to get to where we are at in life. We were full of self doubt, low self esteem and a sense of powerlessness. We had both been in several toxic and manipulative relationships with narcissistic people that instilled fear and confusion into the way we thought and felt. We worked hard to dig our way out of the gloom and doom and finally see the light. We are fighters, warriors, and survivors. Just like you. It wasn't easy work but sooooo worth it! We use the term guide because that feels natural, although more people seem to be familiar with the term coach, so we use that as well. We are psychotherapists with practices in Lisle, Illinois and Seattle, Washington. We specialize in helping people become their best selves, find their true identity and learn to love themselves again (or for the first time ever). We are passionate about helping our clients see their inner power and strength so they can make choices that change their lives for the better and be in healthier relationships. The variety of people, issues and places we have worked have taught us that TOO many people have been impacted by toxic relationships and it has motivated us to create this online program so that we can reach more people. We have over 30 years of relatable, personal and professional experience with developing skills and tools to heal after being in toxic and manipulative relationships.
The impact of toxic relationships lingers, even long after it has ended. It causes self doubt, distrust of others. and a relentless inner critic who believes she is not good enough. It causes self blame, fear of it happening again. We help our clients understand why they are thinking and feeling these things and give them tools to change, heal and grow. We teach them to have a healthy relationship within so they can have healthy relationships with others.
Those are just some of the words that help to describe how my clients feel after working with me.
I am not here to tell you what to do. I am here to help you do the things that you have wanted to do but felt blocked, overwhelmed or stuck in doing by yourself. I am here to support you, guide you, and cheer you on so that you can be your best self.
