Are you finding yourself in a pattern of repetitive behaviors that often interfere with your relationships/self-esteem? This may look like: relationships characterized by high conflict or codependency; periods of intense self-shaming/negative self-talk; emotional reactivity; or may show up as self-harming behaviors. If you are looking to receive non-judgmental care focused on building self-esteem and improving emotional regulation, you are in the right place! I have experience working specifically with young adults 18-35, the LGBTQ+ community and those diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder or PTSD.

Life is an adventure. Sometimes there are high mountains to climb, rough waters swim, or dragons to tame, but you don’t have to face them alone. I’m here because I know what it’s like to feel like you’re drowning. My goal as a therapist is to provide a place where people can step out of the storm and breathe. Working with teens and adults, I use trauma-informed and a harm reduction framework, at a client led pace. This means I will not expect you to “dive right in” and share your deepest fears or darkest secrets minutes after meeting me. There’s no pressure here. Whatever your focus is, that is where we will start.

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.

Highly sensitive hearts, introverts, deep feelers, the socially anxious, and those with emotionally intense personalities are welcome here. You feel ALL the feels. All the time. Sometimes your emotions seem so powerful that you feel out of control or that it is unbearable. You form strong attachments to people, pets, places, and things but struggle with stability and security in your relationships. You are fed up with being told that you are 'too emotional', 'too needy', 'too clingy', or 'too sensitive'. Maybe you use alcohol, drugs, food, or suicidal thoughts to cope with your overwhelming emotions.

I am a psychotherapist specializing in growth-oriented counseling with adults & couples. My clients typically work to increase emotional awareness of their present choices or patterns which lead to various forms of distress. This pain often causes significant disruption in their social, work, physical lives or intimate relationships. Early childhood experiences influence how we all experience our lives today. Insights and associations during talk therapy often bring previously unseen options to light that lead to healthier choices and decreased stress and pain. These sessions take place weekly over the course of many months or more to provide the foundation of lasting growth.

My ideal client is an individual who either has been contemplating change or is ready to make changes in their life and would like to have someone objective to talk with. I am open minded and love to learn from my clients. I think that continuing education is vital and that mental health is as important as physical health. My ideal client would be someone who would take what they think is beneficial from our session and practice it in their everyday life. Then we would discuss in future sessions how the practice went and what needs to be adjusted-if anything!

Most of us struggle with sadness, anger, and anxiety at some point in our lives. I have come to understand that for these feelings to heal, you need to have healthy, safe, secure relationships. You achieve this by healing your unresolved wounds and learning how to have good relationships, especially with yourself. Doing this involves implementing boundaries,knowing your needs and wants, emotional & physical self-care, communication skills, and learning how to regulate your emotions. I too have taken this journey which has brought incredible healing to my life. Healing should not be done alone, we all need support and guidance!

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.
