When addiction is present in a family, its effects are not only felt by the addict, they also have a profound impact on the entire family system. By including all family members in the recovery process, I can help the healing begin and offer support for the trauma that everyone has experienced.

At some point in life most of us experience feeling lost, frustrated, sad, or anxious. When it gets to the point where you feel immobile or stuck, that's when counseling can be helpful.

I can help you develop new coping strategies so when you're faced with difficult challenges, you have the tools to overcome them. Whether your needs are short or long term, I firmly believe that counseling can improve the quality of your life.

"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived; however, if faced with courage, need not be lived again". Facing pain and brokenness of the deepest kind requires amazing strength and courage! Counseling is a unique opportunity to connect w/ the overwhelming issues that can block one's most earnest efforts to "do it differently this time". I'd consider it an honor to work with you as you come to understand your story--whether anxiety, discouragement, addictions, relationships. I look forward to collaborating with you in this challenging, yet rewarding work, as you move toward freedom from any concern that holds you back.

As a body/brain-based therapist, I take an emergent approach to treating historic and intergenerational trauma as we look at personal trauma, knowing that today’s experiences are linked to trauma, resilience and the cultural/economic systems of your ancestors. Without examination of how colonialism, white supremacy, capitalism and heteropatriarchy have impacted you & your lineage, we often feel a lack of value. These oppressive structures have served to separate and disempower most, while stroking fear, isolation, perfectionism, anti-social behaviors and a never ending sense of urgency in the few who benefit.

Not accepting new clients
I'm not currently accepting new clients; however, I'm happy to refer to another clinician with openings at my trauma-focused group practice, Sustainable Wellness. I believe we all have the potential to better ourselves, and that growth occurs while exploring the root causes of issues - not just treating symptoms. I have a holistic approach, treating the entire person rather than a disorder or specific hardship. I view my clients as experts on their own lives and my role as the facilitator of change. I help address my clients' struggles while, equally importantly, maintaining areas of strength.

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.
