For what it's worth, Greenbean885, even the very best experts have been fooled by the psychopath. They are very cunning, shallow emoting, predatory types. They will con you for everything you have and then leave without any regrets or conscience whatsoever.
That's their problem: they have no conscience; Dr. Hare, who is an expert on this subject, says that they have no SOUL. There's the answer for you. (There are two books that might interest you:
"Without Conscience" and "Snakes in Suits", both by Dr. Hare.)
Please continue psychotherapy until the trauma has flown away from your soul.
