Helping You Heal Relationships, Codependency & Anger
Relationships don't work when you put yourself last.
Putting everyone else's needs first makes it hard to feel loved. Secretly, you feel hurt and resentful because you can't say no.
Inside you might feel angry and despite your best intentions, it's leaking out. You may find yourself making sarcastic commens or lashing out at your kids.
You try hard to keep things together, but the stress is getting to you. You are everything to everyone except yourself.
You have always been the nice girl or responsible husband, but you're tired. Being the giver becomes part of your identity. If you can give without it being at your own expense, then it still works. If you define yourself by what you do rather than who you are, it's a problem.
But life doesn't have to be this hard. Something isn't working and you feel stuck. Being willing to look at what's in the way starts the healing.
You can learn how to take better care of yourself, and get emotions under control. Getting angry isn't a bad thing but if you can't keep it together, relationships can fall apart. You feel guilty that you want something for yourself.
When you begin to make small but steady changes, you can communicate what you need without hurting someone else.
I help individuals and couples who are struggling with relationship problems, addiction recovery, compulsive eating, anger divorce, co-parenting stress, mild anxiety and depression. I offer support and gentle encouragement to look at what's not working.
