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.

When we think of the narcissist we visualize the classic, overt iindividual at stage center: so charming, perssuasive, over-confident. 

The other type of narcissist is the covert. Coverts are alway under cover; they fly beneath the radar. They appear to be mee. We see them blending into the background like a chameleon.  They are full of compliments. They ask us questions that make us look very smart. 

Covert narcissists are very sneaky. They are focused on finding individuals who will help them rise socially and in business as well. They recognize that you are a great "catch."  that can be used to build theire image and give ghem a higher status in the society. The Covert treats you like royalty---Anything you want, I'm here for yu 24/7. This is so appealing to most people you say to yourself: "What a selfless kind person this is?" "Finally, someone I can trust." 

Times moves forward but the nature of the covert narcissist does not change. You are being betrayed and keep making excuses for the narcissist's vile projections, humiliations, unrealistic demands. 

The marriage/partnership has lead to psychological chaos and become very ugly 

The covert is a chronic liar and completely lacks empathy. 

At a point of awakening you decide that you will be true to yourself, separate from this non-relationship and move forward along you own pathways of individuality, self initiation, creativity and rediscovering your true, authentic self.
