Frequently Asked Questions
How do you know so much about narcissists?
Knowledge is a combination of information and experience. I have a little of both.
Why do you do try to help others?
Dealing with pathologically narcissistic people is frustrating, confusing and painful. It's like being at war and someone's entire life becomes consumed with trying to figure out what is wrong with this person and with getting through to them. People are abused, mistreated, sabotaged and more. They feel trapped and stuck. It's living hell. This is a way of trying to give people tools so that they have some way to cope with the situation they are in.
Will you ever tell your personal story?
Maybe one day. The focus should be on the information, not the teacher.
Can I talk with you 1 on 1?
Yes. Visit the Bookings tab to schedule an appointment.
Can I schedule less than 60 minutes?
Less than 60 minutes is not usually long enough for someone to tell their whole story and get detailed feedback.
Can I schedule more than 60 minutes?
It is preferred that you not schedule more than one 60 min. appointment a day, though you can schedule more than one a week if you would like.
What does an appointment with you consist of?
It depends on what it is you are looking for. They are all a little different.
Is video chatting available?
No. Video chatting can be riddled with technical difficulties that will use up your allotted time.
Do you take appointments in person?
Not at this time.
During our appointment, will you tell me honestly whether you think I'm a narcissist?
Yes, if you want to know.
Will you tell anyone what I've said? Do you record what I'm saying?
Absolutely not. All appointments are private and confidential.
Do you work with children?
No. You must be over the age of 18.
Do you work with couples or families?
If the goal is to convince one of the people involved that they are a narcissist, no. If both people are dealing with a narcissist outside the relationship (such as a parent), yes. I also work with couples individually. I do not work with couples together. No exceptions.
Do you work with narcissists?
It depends on many factors.
Can I make an appointment for someone else?
Only with their express permission. If I feel they have been manipulated, convinced or otherwise coerced into speaking with me, the appointment will not continue. It absolutely must be their idea.
Why didn't you answer my email, FB message or YouTube comment?
Unfortunately, it is just not possible to respond to all of the messages received.
Do you accept insurance?
No. The Little Shaman is a spiritual advisor.
Can I make a same-day appointment?
You can email and see if there are any cancellations or open times.
What is the cancellation policy?
If you cannot keep your appointment, please let me know within 24 hours. It can be rescheduled with no problem.
