Will I ever be good enough? Healing from maternal narcissism with Licensed Therapist, Jenna Pacelli, LMFT, SEP
Were you raised by a neglectful, self-absorbed, emotionally abusive or neglectful mother who lacked empathy for you?
Did you consistently feel a lack of emotional closeness with her? Did she only support the things that reflected well on her? Have you consistently questioned whether or not your mother loved you?
Does she deny her own feelings and as a result, yours? Does she blame things on you rather than taking responsibility for her own feelings or behavior?
Spend two hours with Jenna to learn how to heal from a mother like this.
If you're experiencing or feeling any of the following this workshop is for you:
-You never feel good enough.
-You feel unlovable.
-You often feel empty.
-You consistently doubt yourself.
-You have low self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth and it shows up in many areas of your life.
-You often give to others but struggle to receive or are surrounded by people who only want to take from you.
-You often feel numbed out to yourself and to life.
-You consistently feel on edge, unsettled or guilty for just being you. If you succeed at something, you're scared to tell your mom for fear of how she'll treat you if you outshine her.
-You tend to put the needs of others above your own even though you know better.
-You have self-sabotaged a lot in your life.
-You overwork and are a high achiever in just about every area of your life but perhaps can't shake the guilt that comes with success.
-You're a perfectionist.
-You consistently people please.
-You feel disconnected from your intuition or when you've followed it before, it's led you into similarly abusive patterns in your adult relationships.
-You fear abandonment or engulfed in your adult relationships. Healthy closeness and intimacy feel elusive.
-You struggle to believe in yourself because your mom consistently undermined, criticized and competed with you.
-You've spent a significant amount of time in talk therapy already trying to work through and process this. You've hit a wall and don't know if you'll ever heal at a deeper level to shift the symptoms above.

-How to heal your relationship to yourself so you can finally stop re-enacting the abuse and emotional unavailability you suffered on yourself as an adult.
-How to heal your self-worth after a childhood like this.
-How to have healthy boundaries with your narcissistic mother.
-How to stop people pleasing and live truer to yourself.
-Learn how you can heal enough to have mutually fulfilling relationships.
