Social Media

Social media gives us all an opportunity to create a false narrative of our lives. And too often, that narrative is of a life we wish we had or what we want to be. The result is a distorted sense of reality. For many of us, social media came into our lives and quickly became a slippery slope. Lena Derhally encourages us to take a step back and consider how we can be more intentional in the way social media plays a role in our lives.

Lena is a licensed psychotherapist and expert in narcissism in the Washington, DC area. She’s the author of the book The Facebook Narcissist.
