Codependency is simple by definition - It's a pattern of orienting yourself around others rather than being your own center of gravity. This creates what we call, symptoms - resentment, dissatisfaction, deadness, depression, overwhelm, bitterness, anxiety, obsession, and self-aggression. I help clients to strengthen their boundaries in relationship and cultivate more self-awareness.
Trauma is an experience that overwhelms your system. Childhood experiences can continue to impact us in a number of ways - unstable relationship to oneself and others, panic attacks, depression, addiction, anger, anxiety, feeling out of body, chronic destructive habits, memory loss. I work with you to mitigate symptoms, increase your sense of emotional control, and establish a life worth living.
Has a previously fluid and easy connection dissolved into fighting, blaming, emotional disconnection, or indifference? Differences in values causing stress or resentment? Wanting to reestablish intimacy and closeness? I have specialized training to help couples and individuals break patterns that cause fighting, improve communication, and strengthen connection.
This, like any crisis, holds both tragedy and opportunity. As we all attempt to cope with and apprehend this large scale global event, we are learning quickly what is and isn't working on both a personal and collective level; Many are wondering, with a sense of pre-emptive despair, if we will integrate these lessons. I am available to those who are seeking support around these sudden shifts.
Depression can be an all-encompassing mental, emotional, and bodily state. The word itself reveals much about its nature - something is being 'depressed,' and the symptoms can be a scary experience - lack of joy, chronic fatigue, numbness, negative thought patterns. The effects of depression are compounded by social stigma. I work with you to stabilize your moods and recover a sense of aliveness.
