Codependency and How Therapy Can Help
Codependency is a complex and pervasive relational pattern that extends beyond traditional romantic partnerships, affecting interactions with co-workers, friends, and family members. It is characterized by extreme dependence on certain loved ones, feeling overly responsible for their feelings and actions, and a lifelong pattern of dependent and submissive behavior, including a fear of separation and excessive need for care. At its core, codependency often leads to an excessive focus on others' well-being at the expense of one's own.
As a therapist, I specialize in helping individuals address codependency issues through a variety of therapeutic approaches. In therapy, I work closely with clients to help them gain insight into their maladaptive patterns and behaviors. Together, we develop strategies to set healthy boundaries and equip them with essential coping tools and effective communication skills. Building self-esteem and self-worth is a fundamental part of this process, and I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for this exploration. We also work on cultivating healthy relationships and developing relapse prevention strategies. My goal is to empower clients to break free from codependent dynamics and create more balanced, fulfilling connections in their lives. If you're ready to embark on a journey toward healthier relationships and greater self-empowerment, I'm here to guide and support you every step of the way.
