Hi, I’m Dr. Rhonda Freeman (clinical neuropsychologist). Welcome to Neuroinstincts! I created Neuroinstincts to be a place where you can get clarity about toxic or abusive relationship. Most survivors who seek out my site were involved with mates on the pathological narcissism spectrum. For example, people with narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality, malignant narcissism, and psychopathy.
It’s easy to feel confused by partners with psychopathy and narcissistic personality disorder because they manipulate the reality of girlfriends, boyfriends, or spouses and often throw them away in the most cold manner (discard).
I was involved in one of these relationships several years ago. And I did nothing more than open my heart to someone I thought was special. Like many of you I tried (and I cried) in hopes of making what we had in the beginning resurface. But I was fighting a losing battle.
We all deserve love … real love from someone that cares deeply for us. From someone who will not derive comfort from our pain.
No one deserved the hurt feelings, stress, and mind games that often accompany loving a psychopath or narcissist.
I made it through the aftermath and the growth that followed is something I cherish.
I’m the type that likes to pay it forward and help others. I’m sure many of you can relate and may have a similar style. My trauma was the impetus to create neuroinstincts. I want to share this site with you and give you the knowledge I gained partially through my relationship, however mostly through my professional experience as a neuropsychologist.
My hope is to empower survivors of emotional, psychological, sexual, and physical abuse and expand their understanding of the dynamics behind many toxic relationships. Sometimes, I will approach things from a neuroscience angle. And if that’s alright with you and you enjoy learning about the brain, then you’re definitely my kind of person!
Before you go – please subscribe to my mailing list below. I’ll send you updates when I add anything to the site or if I have something to share.
All the Best, Rhonda
