How can I reprogram myself so I am no longer attracting (and becoming attracted to) narcissistic men?

Somehow or another I have realized that I ONLY am attracted to, and thus date, narcissists or men with narcissistic tendencies. This is a pattern in my life and I am not sure how to break it, but I must if I am ever to have success in finding a life partner. I also seem to attract this personality type exclusively, and I can't identify what it is that I do that makes me such an appealing target.
How can I figure out what it is that attracts me to these men and these types of men alone, and what steps can I take to reprogram myself so that a) I can filter them out when they come my way, and b) stop finding them so alluring? My therapist has some ideas, but so far, I don't feel like we've really gotten to the root of the issue and I have no idea where to start.
