Are you in an unhealthy relationship?
Are you ready to explore the complexities of your relationship?
If you answered “Yes”, I am here to support you as you detangle from an unhealthy partner, family member, or friendship. Furthermore, I support clients that are in high-conflict personal, familial, and professional relationships. During your sessions, you will begin to discuss and understand the complexities of your relationships. You will learn effective coping strategies that you can use as you set boundaries moving forward in your life.
Often I am asked by clients, “Am I co-dependent”?
On the CoDa.org website, they suggest that people may experience:
- Difficulty identifying what they are feeling
- Minimize, alter, or deny how they truly feel
- Think they can take care of themselves without any help from others
- Mask pain in various ways such as anger, humor, or isolation
- Do not recognize the unavailability of those people to whom they are attracted
I encourage you to empower yourself, don’t get stuck in defining a diagnosis. The goal of counseling is that you will be able to grow personally, have a safe place to talk, and learn to trust your own judgment. As you make independent decisions you will become stronger emotionally. In addition, I encourage you to remind yourself that you are resilient, capable, and strong.
