What Is A Trauma Bond?

It the most fundamental characteristic of being in a relationship with a narcissist. Understanding how to recognize them and break the cycle is critical to real healing. Learn more about my course Trauma Bonds 101 

Lynn is a survivor of narcissistic abuse.  Now she helps people on their healing journey.

You are not crazy. You are dealing with an individual whose goal is to make you think you are. This is a tactic of a narcissist. The behavior is insidious and meant to control and manipulate you in ways that destroy your confidence and mental well being.

Of most significance, I achieved validation of my present emotional status. I was extremely comforted and have a better understanding of my current situation. 

I would absolutely recommend Lynn Catalano for coaching on this topic. Lynn is knowledgeable, prepared, listens, relates and coaches/teaches her clients realistic strategies. I know I have made a new friend too!


This training was just what I needed.  I had no idea what was happening.  The training is brief, to the point, and full of information.  

If you don’t understand what’s going on in your relationship, this

will help you!


Lynn helped me to find a path to good health, happiness, and forgiveness by showing me how to end this cycle of abuse and the relationships. Lynn teaches the signs, symptoms, and patterns of narcissistic behavior so that you can recognize them. Knowing those signs and the actual behavior to expect, you are much less likely to be triggered into a personal response that exaggerates the situation. You don't deserve this treatment. You deserve to be happy.

Narcissistic abuse comes in many forms. You've been conditioned. sometimes for years, to accept this person as they are and consider their behavior normal. It's not. Recognize that you've been in a state of hypervigilance, walking on eggshells, the whole time. 


I've spent years trying to be the bigger person and that's meant shrinking myself, minimizing the years of manipulation, and being quiet. I'm done with that behavior. I'm no longer tolerating the abuse. Enough is enough.

Why narcissistic abuse recovery coaching?

My reason for coaching is that I knew I had knowledge and experience to share. I knew if I could help someone going through the same toxic relationship, it would mean something. 


You see, I didn't get here by accident. I didn't set out to become a narcissistic abuse recovery coach. But after I'd suffered this kind of abuse, I realized that my story and my experience could help so many people who've suffered similarly. When someone tells me about their struggles and their story, I'm not just understanding. I really get it. I've been there. I've felt thise same emotions, that same rage and loss.


I can help you.
