Often times people face challenges that prevent them from having fulfilled lives. Old coping skills appear failing and emotional distress disrupts balance. Entering therapy at a time of vulnerability can be difficult, but it can also bring healing and growth. I think that progress and change happen when collaboration, safety, trust, and empathy are present in therapy; these principles guide my work and support any treatment approaches that may be appropriate to take.

Who are you really? This is a question I ask my clients. I have been a psychotherapist and consultant for over 30 years. I draw on my innate intuitive abilities as well as my traditional clinical training to bring healing and transformation to my clients. My family systems background allows me to see the individual as a multifaceted system. What we perceive as a “problem” often reflects how we have adapted to the stress and trauma that we may have endured. Our perceived problems, such as addiction to substances, and other self- defeating patterns become encoded within our whole system, and ultimately distort our true essence.

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative, pragmatic, and theoretically grounded in the biopsychosocial model. When assessing clients and their treatment needs, I recognize individuals are embedded within a complex web of social relationships and are influenced by larger political, economic, and environmental forces.

It can be so suffocating and painful to lose control of your addictions, your emotions, or your self worth. That sense of being stuck and unable to change the way you feel is all too common when you're living with trauma, addiction, anxiety, or depression. Unfortunately, when we believe that others don’t understand or accept us, we begin seeing ourselves as ‘different’, and we feel more isolated and alone. Eventually, we disconnect from ourselves and the people around us. Nick will work with you to help you reconnect to the self compassion essential to breaking these cycles.

Codependency Therapists

What therapy types help with codependency problems?

Both couples and family therapy and cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) can help with the relationship difficulties referred to as codependency. Such problems typically include inappropriate feelings of responsibility for a loved one’s destructive behavior, irrational patterns of thinking about such behavior, and family interaction patterns in which the needs of one troubled member override the needs of others in a household.

What happens in therapy for codependency?

Spouses and family members learn and practice how to interact and support each other in a healthy way without sacrificing their own needs or well-being. They learn the limits of their responsibility for their loved ones and correct faulty patterns of thinking and feeling that underlie codependent behavior. Individuals may be encouraged to nurture an array of social relationships and to cultivate their own talents and interests so that they develop a healthy sense of self outside the family.

How does therapy help a person or couple overcome codependency?

Therapy helps people establish healthy ways of being in a relationship. Spouses and family members learn how to nurture and support one another without sacrificing their own needs or allowing the needs of one person to dominate the dynamic. Individuals learn how to say no and set boundaries, and how to maintain their own identity and self-esteem. Therapy helps people understand that they are not responsible for the feelings and actions of others. It also helps individuals deal with the turbulence that can come from living with a person suffering from such conditions as substance abuse and mental illness.

What is the goal of therapy for codependency?

One goal of therapy for codependency is to alleviate feelings of responsibility for and correct irrational patterns of thinking about loved ones whose behavioral problems override the needs of others in a household. Therapy helps people establish healthy boundaries of behavior and speak up for their own needs in a relationship. In addition, people learn how to maintain a healthy relationship, one in which both parties give and receive equally and are able to retain their own identity.
