Therapists Specializing in Codependency in Florida

Codependency is a term generally used to refer to an unhealthy relationship dynamic. Although exact definitions vary, it can be broadly described as an excessive reliance on a relationship to the detriment of a person’s own needs and wellbeing. Some codependent relationships can involve emotionally manipulative behavior and power struggles. If these relationship issues become extreme or frequent, they can interfere with one’s own wellbeing and ability to lead a healthy lifestyle.

If you’re looking to address codependent behavior, it may help to seek out either individual therapy or counseling with the other person in your relationship. Depending on the specific issue, a therapist might help you build confidence and self-esteem, develop communication or assertiveness skills, and help navigate and find solutions to issues. Some providers might help you change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in order develop more helpful beliefs through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Other providers might explore underlying causes of codependent behavior through a reflective style of therapy, such as psychodynamic therapy, or focus directly on relationships and related skills in interpersonal therapy.

It takes a lot of bravery to reach out and start therapy. It can be scary to think about not trying to do this on our own anymore and it can be pretty vulnerable to talk with someone about what’s been going on in life. I nonjudgmentally and empathetically, go at your pace for exploring vulnerable areas. I also encourage clients to share feedback with me-what is working, what do you like, what’s not working, etc. You are the best judge about what you need, so we pay close attention to this. Our therapeutic relationship is also a very important factor in this process, so it’s important to feel like it’s the right fit and I may check in and see how the therapeutic relationship feels for you.

The first session or two focuses on background information. I provide a thorough assessment in order to understand as much as I can about you and what you’ve been experiencing. We then set goals and then work towards those goals through the variety of techniques above. When we have met or are moving closer to goals, individuals will move down from weekly sessions to biweekly or monthly sessions, until they feel confident to approach what brought them to counseling and feel complete with their process in therapy.

In my own life I have learned that while asking for help is often hard, it is necessary. I see myself as a giving professional, here to help others clarify and seek solutions and coping mechanisms for their pain and struggle. I have had 20+ years of experience such as addiction, codependence, anxiety, depression, parenting and relationship issues.

While I am happy to see teenagers and young adults I do so only if they are personally and not parentally motivated to be in therapy. I learn much from my clients and seek to be a friendly and supportive presence to my clients.

My specialties have developed over the years to codependence, addiction and the resulting issues that face people I recovery including maintaining sobriety and relationship issues dealing with addiction. I am a believer in appropriate medical intervention and the use of antidepressants as adjunct treatments for optimal mental health.

I often bring my co-therapists, a shih tzu and a maltese yorkie to my office with me, where I strive to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere for support and healing. I also offer Telehealth sessions online.

I believe that successful treatment is based on a warm, supportive, collaborative, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment, in which the client can comfortably explore issues and experience a good connection with the therapist. Since I am trained in different modalities (including insight oriented/psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, ACT, DBT, IPT), I am able to tailor my clinical approach to each individual’s needs and work integratively.

My approach is collaborative and my goal is to help my clients learn new and more effective coping skills, make meaningful life changes, heal from past trauma, establish healthier relationships, and work towards achieving the life that they envision for themselves. Gains made by individuals in psychotherapy are often maintained for many years.

In my personal clinical experience, I have found that psychotherapy facilitates personal growth and healing. Clients gain better self knowledge and self confidence, communicate and assert themselves more effectively, become more aware of their needs and learn to replace old and Ineffective ways of coping by healthier ones. Clients make better choices for themselves and become less stuck and paralyzed. Some will make career changes; others will find more suitable partners, and many learn to live lives that are more meaningful, satisfying, and more consistent with their core values.

Psychotherapy can be either short-term or long–term. Some individuals want to focus on a specific issue or target specific symptoms and may need coaching through that specific issue. Others may want to work through more complex life issues in order to attain a better understanding of themselves or to achieve their
desired goals.

At our first visit, we’ll discuss your present and past in great detail, including the concerns that prompted you to seek treatment. Based on our conversation, I will offer initial impressions and recommendations for our work together. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of the ways your mind works, cultivate better coping strategies, recognize areas in your life where you can begin to take back control from habitual behaviors, and start you on a path to better health and functioning, all while exploring the deeper, less conscious influences on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You’ll also receive homework, morning practices, and tools to use between sessions to deepen the work and to appease the parts of us that want the process to feel tangible and productive.

There are moments in life when things feel overwhelming, and you might not even know why. Other times it might be clearer what is causing your distress. Either way, you may be waiting for things to get better, but the longer you wait, the more difficult it gets. The good news is that things can get better; I assure you they can.

If you are here it's because you have already taken the most difficult step; deciding to seek help. Fortunately, asking for help gets easier with practice. The way in which we cope with difficulties is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a different perspective is often the first and most significant step toward developing the skills needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve your goals.

It is my priority to create a safe atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

You deserve to feel seen, heard, and to know you matter in your relationships. Connection is vital to our mental health. Connection with ourselves, our romantic partners, our family, and our friends. Many of our issues can be traced back to relational issues. Whether it is a current relationship or baggage and trauma hanging around from our past experiences and childhood. I want to help you achieve the relationship you deserve, whether that is with your partner, family, grieving the loss of a relationship, or while dating and trying to find a partner.

Life is too short and relationships are too important to stay stuck in disconnected and painful patterns, to hold grudges, to let our past trauma control our present, or to feel lonely all the time. I want you to be free from the weight of your past that is holding you back, to be fully in the present, and to feel connected, loved, and in control of your life and relationships. Let’s work together to make that happen in your life.
