104 | Healing Codependency & Cultivating a Healthy Relationship with Carista Luminare
One of the themes I’ve worked with a lot in both my personal life, as well as in my private practice over the years is healing from narcissistic abuse and codepenency. And, the flip side, on cultivating a secure, healthy relationship (first with oneself, and then, ultimately, with an intimate partner).
To help go deeper into this exploration as a larger community, I’ve invited to join us today Carista Luminare, who has been nicknamed “The Narcissism Whisperer.”
Carista Luminare, Ph.D., has more than 40 years experience as a counselor, consultant and educator to individuals, couples and families. In her private counseling practice, she integrates her lifelong research on how our early bonding patterns profoundly impact our self-identity and adult relationship dynamics. She uses her unique attachment approach to rewire relationships from insecure to secure love and well-being.
Carista and I speak about:
-The four main attachment styles, which she calls LoveStyles
- How to heal your attachment style to become secure, if you had a traumatic or wounding experience in childhood
- Why narcissism needs to be explored as a spectrum, and how low-level narcissism can be healed (while more extreme levels cannot)
- Ways to recover from codependency and to reclaim your voice and sovereignty in an intimate relationship
- How to apply these pro-relational tools outside of intimate relationships
-And much more
If you’re wanting to experience healthy, secure relationships– romantically and otherwise, you’ll receive a lot from Carista’s wisdom today. Enjoy!
