I have experience in relationship intimacy, family systems/codependency; trauma; change, loss, & transitioning; developing communication, assertiveness & conflict resolution skills; & resolving issues that interfere w/ relationships & personal fulfillment.
Are you experiencing difficulty with personal or work life issues or relationships? Are you unsure about how to bring up issues at home or work to have a constructive discussion? Do you avoid issues hoping that they'll get better or go away? Do you repress your feelings about the "little" things then lose your "cool"? I develop trusting relationships with clients while working on these issues and others. I view the client and myself as a team focused on gaining insight and skills so the client can cope with present day issues and enhance relationships.

Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) we can work together to address anxiety, past trauma, boundaries, codependency, and insecurity.
You want a healthy, fun relationship, with a sense of safety and security, with healthy boundaries, connection, and where you can be yourself. Your emotional health may stand in the way of creating a healthy relationship with a healthy person. Your past, with trauma and toxic relationships, and your present anxiety with the negative thoughts swirling in your mind keep you from engaging in relationships the way you would like to, keep you second guessing and never feeling stable in relationships, and keep you falling into the same relationship patterns and self sabotage

My door is open to anyone who wants to talk. Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what our feelings are, or what changes would be possible or meaningful. In a safe, non-judgmental space, we can work together to get at these experiences, find words for them, and understand how they fit into overall patterns of living. By digging deeper, and compassionately exploring our pasts, we become better able to live in the present.

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.
