Mission & Vision
My mission is to help you to discover, understand and overcome the narcissistic abuse in your life, and to help you take your life from “just existing” to “really living.” I spend my days working to help people who have experienced the emotional and mental devastation that comes with narcissistic abuse in these incredibly toxic relationships to (re)discover their true selves, stop the gaslighting and manipulation and move forward into their genuine desires – into a life that is exactly what they choose for themselves.
In short, I want to help you go from being a victim of narcissistic abuse to a survivor and a thriver.
QueenBeeing.com celebrates narcissistic abuse survivors and asks them to take charge of their lives.
At QueenBeeing Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Support, we encourage our readers to join us in creating a public dialogue to share our thoughts, concerns and opinions. In return, we’ll provide regularly updated, useful and original content, including videos, articles, podcasts and more, all developed with narcissistic abuse survivors in mind and designed to help you improve your life.
The QueenBeeing Intention
“Here’s why I built this site!” ~Angie Atkinson
Every day, I learn something new, something that makes my life just a little bit better. I have learned how to use intentional thoughts and to choose my perception in order to bring about positive changes in my life, almost without fail. It really is “all in your head.”
That’s why, here at QueenBeeing, it’s my mission to teach others what I know to be true: you really can create the life you want.
The truth is that life can be beautiful, and you can have everything you want–it all starts within you. Your perception builds your world, and the best part is that you get to choose how you perceive literally every thing and situation in your life. You can be happy, right now.
You truly can enjoy the journey to personal fulfillment, personal development and true passion—AND you can look and feel amazing while you do it. How? It’s easy.
Take care of your body, take care of your soul. Nurture the real you, and introduce him or her to the world. Be comfortable in your skin, and in your place in the world. Take your spot, take it now, and the universe will take its cue from you. Let QueenBeeing show you how.
Meet Our Clinical Psychology Partner, Dr. Robin Bryman.
Licensed Psychologist Dr. Robin Bryman is the QueenBeeing.com psychology advisor and content partner.
The QueenBeeing.com Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Support Team is proud to partner with Dr. Robin Bryman. A fellow survivor of narcissistic abuse, Dr. Bryman’s background and knowledge as a clinical psychologist led her to become an expert in narcissistic abuse recovery. Her New York-based practice serves survivors every day, by phone and in person. In her role as content partner and psychology expert at QueenBeeing, Dr. Bryman works with QueenBeeing founder Angie Atkinson in developing content for our site, helping to ensure that our content is accurate and not harmful to our readers and viewers. In addition to creating expert narcissistic abuse recovery content on her Tiktok and Instagram pages, Dr. Bryman appears in some of Angie Atkinson’s YouTube and TikTok videos, as well as offering guidance to our coaches regarding accurate content.
Know That You're Not Alone
When Angie Atkinson launched her mission to help her fellow narcissistic abuse survivors, she set out with a specific goal in mind: to be the person she needed in her own recovery (but didn’t have) for you. Each member of our team is also a survivor, so we understand and we are here to support you. Start your narcissistic abuse recovery with us and get a guided experience that will help you heal and then take yourself from surviving to thriving.
Helping Us Serve Our Fellow Survivors Safely
We believe that survivors must be protected from misinformation and toxic “helpers” in narcissistic abuse recovery.
When Angie Atkinson first realized she was dealing with narcissistic abuse in her life in 2005, she did so on her own. Since then, thanks in part to her background in journalism and research, she has been researching, writing about, and discussing narcissistic abuse recovery, narcissistic personality disorder, and related topics.
After becoming a recognized expert in narcissistic abuse recovery, she became a certified life coach in 2014 in response to many requests from readers who wanted her support after reading her work or watching her videos. That’s why, when Dr. Robin Bryman reached out to her in 2020 to offer her support and partnership, Angie jumped at the opportunity to further ensure that our content is both accurate and helpful. Together, the team has taken our mission to a whole new level.
