Be a survivor of narcissistic abuse Like me


Whatever you think you know about someone’s relationship, trust me, you don’t know half. You see, what everyone that suffers from narcissistic personality disorder fears the most, is any kind of exposure. They don’t want you going to your friends and family and telling them about their toxic behavior. When you suffer this type of abuse it’s isolating. You genuinely feel alone. I know I did.


I’ve been coaching people who’ve suffered similarly for quite a while and I’ve found some people want to work with me but find they can’t. As a solution, I’m forming a new group coaching program. There you will find all of my content, the framework of my narcissistic abuse recovery program, and a community of survivors. The first cohort starts this week, so today is the day to take action. Message me to save your spot lynn@lynncatalano.com.


At the time I discovered that my father suffered from narcissistic personality disorder, I felt very alone. After trying to make our relationship work for years,



  • The back and forth, up and down

  • The “I don’t want you in my life/I’m ready to be a family again”

  • The Silent Treatment for months even years

  • Gaslighting any reality that contradicted his image

  • Manipulation

I found my only choice was to come forward and tell my truth about what had occurred.


I had 3 strikes against me right away:


  1. My narcissist was my father, and he was well-known, often in the newspaper, a community volunteer, and overall big fish in our area.

  2. My mother suddenly died so my father told everyone that I didn’t want my father dating women – a convenient yet untrue story. This became a smear campaign.

  3. My father’s family refused to believe anything I said and victim-shamed me. This just compounded the abandonment I’d already suffered from my father.


When your narcissist is charismatic and known to wear a mask, that is behave differently in public than behind closed doors, as mine was, it makes it all the more difficult to come forward. People only knew him as this great community leader. People have no idea what happens at home, behind closed doors.


Who gets to decide if you’ve suffered emotional abuse?


We’re living in a time of destigmatizing mental illness and being radically aware of our emotional pain. So, it’s important to note people who deal with narcissists on a regular basis struggle with constant emotional pain. You may not understand what’s happening or you’re made to feel you’re overly sensitive, inflexible, and unaccepting.


I get it. I understand where you are.


When you’ve suffered this type of emotional abuse, it helps enormously to talk to someone. But not just anyone. You need to find someone who’s familiar with narcissistic personality disorder. 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 those same emotions, that same rage, and loss.


I’m a narcissistic abuse recovery coach and a survivor of narcissistic abuse and now I coach people on their healing journey. I give people clarity, validation & comfort.
