While the term codependency is often used exclusively in relationships where one partner is an addict, I believe it is important to look at the role of codependency in all relationships. Whenever we are excessively tied to someone needing emotional or psychological support and when there does not exist a process to hand over autonomy or responsibility to the person who's been impaired, we have to examine our codependency issues. While our conscious intent may be to be helpful and nothing more, codependent behaviors may be fueled by underlying needs for security, validation, power, and self-esteem. Whatever the cause, freedom from codependency generally results in greatly increased energy, passion for life, and happiness.

Is most of your time spent worrying about and taking care of others? Does it feel almost impossible to share what's really on in your mind because you fear being rejected? Do you experience feelings of guilt or shame when you think about doing something just for you? If you are ready to find freedom from the feelings of guilt and shame that are holding you hostage, counseling can help. You can learn to make yourself a priority while having relationships that are nurturing and supportive. You know that you "should" be taking better care of yourself and stop letting others take advantage of your kindness. But whenever you think about it you feel lost and overwhelmed, unsure of where to begin. Together, we will work through the feelings of guilt, shame, and fear that are keeping you from being able to honor your voice. We will work through your mental/emotional blocks so you can learn to "trust your gut" again. You will learn how to create healthy boundaries in your relationships so you can say "yes" or "no" to things with confidence. If you are ready to finally become a priority in your life then I would love to help.

Counselor/Therapist, M.Ed., C.E.O.
Collaborative, interdisciplinary, and integrative? What does this mean; honesty, fearlessness, laughter, and joy; mind, body, spirit. We often work in communities or groups with a focus on each person and purpose and work. Strength and flexibility come from inner and other work. There is always room to expand, grow, learn, commune, and replace one thing with a healthier thing. We will also work on practices that support change and focus. Community is essential for fear of any kind. Healthy communication requires a commitment to telling the truth to ourselves and others.

Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LCPC, NCC
Codependency is a behavioral condition in a relationship where one person enables another person's addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement. Among the core characteristics of codependency is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity. In our work together, we will explore/examine the issues related to the behavior and improve the reasoning behind co-dependency.
