“We deserve to live healthy lives in every aspect possible,” states Vicky Alercia, Licensed Professional Counselor. Vicky joins me on this week’s episode and discusses her passion for helping others achieve “true freedom” from narcissistic abuse through healing, empowerment, collaboration, and advocacy. She shares her own story of healing and growth after her experience of divorce, narcissistic abuse, and toxic family relationships. Vicky talks about her mission to help others speak up for themselves, heal after leaving toxic relationships, and engage in a journey of self-love and true freedom with faith and hope.
You are not alone. If you have ever found yourself in a relationship that makes you think “something doesn’t feel right here” or that makes you ask yourself, “am I crazy?” - this episode might help you. Vicky and I discuss important aspects of healing with a holistic, relational, and trauma-informed approach. As mental health providers at Visionistas By Design Wellness Boutique, we are dedicated to helping others navigate life with intentionality to process emotional and mental distress; heal from trauma; and welcome balance, love, connection, and joy. Vicky shares information about her new program “A New You: Healing from Narcissistic Abuse” a trauma-informed approach that helps you heal from toxic and unhealthy relationship dynamics.
“True freedom is the ability to live your life without fear…to expand and create what your heart desires…the knowing of how freeing it is to be your authentic self no matter what a toxic or narcissistic person around you chooses to say or do.” – Vicky Alercia
