Helping You Heal Relationships, Codependency & Anger
Are your relationships not working?
Relationships don't work when you put yourself last. It's so frustrating to give and give without much coming back. Or, you find yourself having the same arguments and nothing changes.
You've tried counseling but nothing has really worked. Finding the right fit in a therapist can take awhile. That doesn't mean it doesn't work. You know that you're struggling but you need help figuring out your next step.
Is anger causing problems in your relationships?
You try hard to keep things together, but the stress is getting to you. Your partner is complaining that you snap for no reason and they're ready to leave. Anger is a challenging emotion and despite your best intentions, it's leaking out.
You may find yourself making sarcastic comments or lashing out at your kids. Getting angry isn't a bad thing but if you can't keep it together, relationships can fall apart.
In therapy, you can learn how to take better care of yourself, and get emotions under control.
Are you codependent?
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, this article What is Codependency might help.
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.
The start of healing
When you begin to make small but steady changes, you can communicate what you need without hurting someone else.
In my counseling practice I see 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, practical tools and gentle encouragement to look at what's not working.
