Meet Wendy T. Behary

I’m Wendy Behary. I am the author of Disarming the Narcissist. I am an expert in narcissism, something that people often puzzled about and I think my general curiosity as a person but also my love of the challenge probably explains my evolution into this area of expertise. When you find yourself looking at someone and you know you want to say yes but you keep saying no, you don’t want to agree but you find yourself agreeing, you find yourself apologizing to something you didn't do wrong. I catch myself doing that and say why am I doing that? And then began to explore and understand this particular type of personality and that’s what led me there. I treat narcissist and the people who are dealing with them, I lecture on the topic and train professionals. I am also married to a wonderful man, David. I have a grown daughter and 2 step children and proud of all of them and the best part of being a mom was really the delight of watching my daughter grow to become not just beautiful in the inside and out, but to be common, lovely human being. In my spare time which I have very little of these days, I enjoyed travelling, I enjoyed the theater and hopefully one day soon I am going to learn and play the African drums.
