Episode 090: Divorcing a Narcissist with special guest Leanne Townsend Leanne Townsend is an attorney in Toronto, Canada. Her expertise is domestic and victim advocacy. She is also a life coach. She is especially good at guiding clients through divorce and knows the smart way to go about it. When you know it’s time to get out, one of the first things to do is get every single document, social security numbers, passport, bank statements (both checking and savings), investments, etc. out of reach or access to partner. Don’t escalate into confrontation and don’t tell partner you are leaving. Get your ducks in a row and get out when he is not home. In some cases, the only contact you should have with the narcissist is through your attorney. Most of the time it’s important that you cannot be reached by him.
