“I met Miriam at a professional conference after she introduced herself as someone who specializes in working with women who are dealing with the repercussions of a relationship with a narcissist. I had a painful breakup more than 9 months prior to meeting Miriam and was still struggling with emotions around it. I had sought therapy earlier in the year and was told my ex is likely a “covert narcissist,” but I didn’t totally buy it. And still the talk therapy hadn’t really had much impact on my struggle.
In working with Miriam, I learned that my experiences of being gaslighted and regularly criticized had actually produced trauma, and my difficult emotions were a very normal response. My ex exhibited traits that I experienced as a child more overtly from my father. I thought I had dealt with my issues around my father in talk therapy, but I discovered that I had been repeating energy patterns from childhood in unhealthy relationship choices as an adult. I learned that I had energy stuck in my body from real traumas I’d experienced, which talk alone was just not able to process.
Miriam’s work cleared old patterns and created healing for me in profound ways simply not accessible via talk therapy. Through working with her, I have been able to clear the immediate pain completely. I now have tools for compassionately helping myself if painful memories arise, and I am no longer terrified of dating, but looking forward to a healthy relationship in my future.”
