The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

High level narcissists have no respect for the needs, feelings, individuality and wishes of others. They are disinterested in others---fascinated by everything "me.". The high level narcissist looks to find a compliant narcissistic supply who will keep his/her ego fully inflated. 

Spouses of high level narcissists have difficulty drawing clear lines of differentiation between their needs for self respect and privacy because the narcissist is so intimidating. 

Develop strong psychological boundaries by practicing self respect, honoring your individuality, self care routines: rest, sleep, movement/exercise, nourishing food, grounding through yoga poses, walking, calming the breath.
