Hi I am….

Mirel Goldstein, MS, MA, LPC

I am a psychotherapist with 18 years of experience helping families, individuals, and couples learn to live their lives more fully, freely, and happily. As an expert on psychoanalysis and personality disorders, I have offered trainings and consultations for organizations, families, and clinicians on: Mentalization based techniques for borderline personality disorder; how to talk to someone who has narcissistic tendencies; communication skills that work when someone is emotionally dysregulated, in a rage, or defensive; and how to understand and accept the limitations of those we love when they’re here to stay. I also teach parenting classes and help parents who want to make sure that their children develop a secure attachment to them. This course is a culmination of many years of experience and study and it’s my pleasure to bring it to you in this affordable, self-study format!

Introducing the course that will give you back your power and your hope!

With compassion and clarity, I will lead you through an in-depth conceptual understanding of what’s going on in your relationship, and I will also teach you what to say and what to do to manage toxic or difficult interactions in ways that don’t make things worse and that often can make things much better.

You can learn how to:

♦ de-escalate conflict 

♦ use mirroring and validation to help your partner calm down 

♦ stay firm and set boundaries 

♦ recognize misunderstandings and clear them up 

♦ and so much more!

Module 1

During this week’s module, we will learn about some common issues that come up in communications or interactions with someone who has a difficult personality or who is emotionally unstable. We will also discuss the role of emotions in relationships.

Module 2

In this week’s module we will discuss reflective listening and validation skills. I will give you some homework assignments at the end to help you learn these skills. Reflective Listening sounds simple but it is really a very sophisticated technique that has to be done right to work!

Module 3

In this week’s module, we will discuss how to manage interactions that involve being manipulated, set up, guilted, or played with. Some people are very good at getting themselves off the hook to avoid being held  responsible or accountable by others. This week we will look at how to deal with this effectively.

Module 4

In this week’s module, we will learn how to use mentalization skills to reduce emotional reactivity and to decrease misunderstandings during your interactions with your partner.

Module 5

In this week’s module, we will discuss some issues that come up when trying to co-parent with a difficult person. We will talk  issues having to do with protecting your children from the effects of the other parent’s behavior, how to talk to your children about what is going on, and how to manage your own anxieties about the impact of your co-parent’s issues on your child/children.


In addition to the final module which reviews and pulls together all of the course material learned so far, you will get access to valuable supplemental materials that will further your understanding of your partner’s behaviors and their effects on yourself and your children.

Her expert analysis and on-target insight on toxic personalities, blew me away – from the very first lesson!

It’s hard work but so worthwhile! I highly recommend this course!”
