Narcissistic Family Dynamics:

Healing Family Wounds & Turning Pain Into Power

Alex Boss Babe-138_edited.png

Trust me, I've lived it.

I'm Alexandra Skinner Walsh, but you can call me Alex.

I'm a licensed mental health counselor & owner of The M.A.D. Therapy, PLLC in Bettendorf, Iowa. My mission is to help you rewrite your script, own who you are & walk in your freakin' power! When we do this we create space for a better mental health.

I am a survivor of narcissistic abuse and have found purpose in helping others understand and heal from this specific type of trauma. I get it because I've lived it. I am a recovering scapegoat who's passionate about helping other scapegoats recognize their innate power, strength, and all around badassery! Let's just say my narcissists aren't too pleased about this, as I am sure yours won't be either as you heal and step into your power. They may have cast us as the scaptegoat, but what they didn't know is that we were always The G.O.A.T..

I'm here to change how we talk mental health, shine light on narcissism, & break the freakin' stigma. I want you to feel like the empowered, badass queen you are!!

"This course walks that perfect line of educational and supportive. Not only did I learn the nuances of what narcissistic tendencies in family dynamics look and feel like, I was able to more closely investigate them in relationship to my own experiences with the help of the thorough and complementary workbook. This is a course you can return to over and over and learn something new every time. The subject matter is in and of itself challenging and painful. Alex is clearly passionate about the topic, and her genuine care comes through so clearly, you truly feel supported and guided by her. She makes it clear that healing is possible, not necessarily easy, but 100% possible. I recommend this to anyone because narcissism is a word that gets thrown around a lot in the public and she makes it very clear what it is and what it isn't. You'll surely benefit!"

What if...

You could spot the abuse and dysfunction when it was happening?

You understood the roles in your family so well you could decide if you wanted to change yours?

You didn't have to just accept it "because they're family"?

You had tools to protect your mental health and make your healing a priority in your family?

You got to pick who you identify as family?

You could find clarity and understanding in the midst of choas?

You didn't always have to feel anxious and fearful. Peace is possible (with or without your family).

It might not seem like it right now, but this is all possible. Together we'll unmask the dynamics & heal.
