Codependancy & Relationship
Codependency and love addiction occur when we begin to use our relationships to avoid dealing with painful aspects of ourselves and our lives. Life can be difficult and it’s challenging to make our own way in the world. As a result, we often cling to relationships that are destructive in order to not have to do the hard work of facing our fears and growing.
ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS & CODEPENDENCY
Dating can be as intoxicating and exciting as it is painful and destructive. Often we find ourselves in relationships that hurt us or just aren’t right for us but we still don’t know how to leave. Relationships can start to feel like a soul-deadening prison in which we’re stuck and can’t get out, or a chaotic addiction alternating between extremes of euphoric highs and intense, painful lows. If you’re struggling to find peace in your relationships, therapy can relieve you.
Finding the right person can be a painful task. When we can’t seem to find a match or when we move from one failed relationship to the next, we begin to question if something is wrong with us. We begin to wonder if we are unlovable and as a result, it becomes difficult to trust ourselves and select a whole, healthy partner.
HOW THERAPY WILL HELP
I am here to help you identify and overcome subconscious walls that are getting in the way of finding a relationship. As we bring awareness to those walls and begin to heal, you will begin to experience your dating life in a radically new way.
What can be typically treated during consultation:
Self-esteem, insecurity, and body image issues.
Confidence boosting and Self-belief.
Identification and removal of subconscious walls that get in the way of potential partners seeing who you really are.
Awareness of ways in which you may inadvertently sabotage your relationships.
Unhealthy patterns in your relationships and relating to your partners in a new, healthy way.
Tracing the roots of your attraction to partners who may not be able to meet your needs.
Beginning to heal the underlying issues that get in the way of having close, stable relationships with people who love and respect you.
Becoming more independent so that you are entering into a partnership out of love rather than out of need or fear of being alone.
