Empaths and Vulnerabilities to Sexual Narcissism with Keresse Thompson

Feb 23, 2024


What does it mean to be with someone who exhibits sexual narcissism? On this week’s episode, Dr. Kate is talking all about sexual narcissism – what it looks like, how it differs from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and best practices for navigating relationships with someone who exhibits signs.


Dr. Kate had the pleasure of sitting down with Keresse Thompson, a seasoned therapist specializing in toxic relationships, narcissistic abuse, borderline personality disorder, and empaths, to unpack this topic. They discuss: • How sexual narcissism may present itself • The subtle ways covert narcissism can occur • The role of baiting and love bombing • Different ways an individual can counterbalance their own needs not being met in relationship And so much more. This conversation is designed to help you to recognize if you are with someone who is sexually narcissistic, and offer tools on how to move through it while maintaining autonomy.
