CODEPENDENCY COUNSELING

You don’t have to feel stuck in confusion about your relationship anymore.

BEING IN A RELATIONSHIP THAT ISN'T WORKING CAN BE CHALLENGING

You’ve been struggling for a long time with anxious thoughts about your relationship and are noticing that your connection with your partner doesn’t feel as secure as it used to be.

You may be feeling lonely, disconnected and afraid—worried that your loved one will leave you.

You might have obsessive thoughts about the relationship ending and fear being alone.

Well-meaning friends and family offer unsolicited advice that isn’t helpful.

Most of your time and energy has been consumed by this relationship and you are tired of feeling insecure, distracted and overwhelmed by thoughts that won’t go away.

The anxiety can be exhausting. You may be at a point in your life where something has to change or things could get worse.

The good news is you don’t have to go through this painful experience alone.

WHAT IS CODEPENDENCY?

“Codependence is the pain in adulthood that comes from being wounded in childhood, which leads to a high probability of relationship problems and addictive disorders in later life.” —The Bridge to Recovery

It can feel painful and isolating to be caught in a relationship that isn’t working. You may feel overwhelmed with mixed emotions for your partner. Your gut may tell you that this person isn’t the right fit for you, but you struggle with the fear that you might not find someone else or that you don’t deserve better.

Maybe you also believe that if you can just love your partner enough, they will change.  Perhaps you’ve come to the point where you feel like you’ve tried everything–from asking your partner to get help with an addiction or other life threatening illness to making threats to leave.

With all the internal and external noise, you might be struggling to identify what you really want. This kind of relationship guidance is not the kind of help you need.

FEEL CONFIDENT AND SECURE IN YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

You can:

-Say goodbye to unhealthy relationship patterns that drain your energy and time.

Go from feeling anxious to confident as you navigate the ups and downs of your relationship.

Get clear on your personal boundaries and fearlessly say “no” to situations and people without worrying about being liked.

Develop tools that nurture you when feeling overwhelmed and stressed in a relationship.

Align and connect with your values so you can attract the people you want into your life.

With the guidance and support of a psychotherapist who is trained to understand the dynamics of codependent relationships, you can learn to identify the relationship you want to have. Let me help you get there.
