Relationships &

Codependency

You are feeling like your relationship is not balanced. You love and support your partner more than they love and support you. You may find yourself sacrificing for your partner but not really getting anything in return. Many couples and individuals in relationships come to me because they are struggling to change unhealthy behaviors. They often recognize that something isn’t “quite right” but need assistance naming it and overcoming the anxiety associated with talking about it. Maybe you can relate to those feelings of loneliness.

 

Have you experienced any of the following?

  • Difficulty making decisions in a relationship

  • Struggling to identify your own feelings

  • Valuing the approval of others more than valuing yourself

  • Lack of trust in yourself and having poor self-esteem

  • Fear of abandonment or unhealthy dependence on relationships

 

I work with couples and individuals in therapy to promote healthy connections, deepen intimacy, and promote self-awareness. It is important to continue to have a sense of self within your relationship.

 

Looking at our relationships can involve:

  • Identifying patterns in your life. Once you've got a handle on what codependency looks like, we take a step back and try to identify any recurring patterns in your current and past relationships

  • Setting boundaries for yourself. This involves boundaries in friendships, family, work, and romantic relationships.

  • Focusing on what you can control versus what you cannot.

  • Offering healthy support. We work to establish how you can help others without burning out

  • Identifying your own needs.
