Therapists Specializing in Codependency in Seattle

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.

You've taken an important first step by being here at this site at this very moment. For many people, they are not quite sure what they want from therapy but they know they want something to be different. Perhaps you no longer want anxiety, stress or previous traumatic experiences to hold you back from your fullest potential. Perhaps you see a need to focus on self care and want to create work/life balance. Perhaps you're reevaluating your career or workplace environment and want to deepen your sense of meaning and purpose. Perhaps you have explored plant medicine, entheogenics, or psychedelics and are looking to integrate the information and experience. Perhaps something is holding you back from living your fullest potential, you're not quite sure what it is but you want to break-free of those limitations. Whatever it is that you'd like to see change, I will be your partner in your growth and healing, you just have to show up.

Welcome to my page - it's so nice to meet you!

It's important to me to make therapy with you as safe and collaborative as possible. I never take the stance of expert and my knowledge is here to be shared with you, so that you can feel empowered to make lasting changes and heal those old wounds that are continuing to get your way. I want to help you feel safe in your body, stand in your power, and create your most authentic life by cultivating curiosity, compassion, and getting to the root of your issues.

I believe that therapy is an active process and that YOU direct and do most of the work. The time between sessions is just as important as the time we work face-to-face. The process looks different for everyone, and it’s so important that you feel you can share when things both are and are not working for you. I truly value client feedback and work diligently to incorporate this to create true collaboration and growth throughout the therapeutic process.

Thank you for checking out my profile - I hope that you are finding something that resonates with your current and future self. Please do not hesitate to reach out for a free consultation and ask questions about my perspective and process. It is very important to find the right fit and someone you feel safe to share vulnerably with.

In a nutshell, an intimacy avoidant behavior is using something on the outside to fix something inside.  Intimacy avoidance behaviors include over-spending or over-shopping, problematic sexual or relationships behaviors (including excessive pornography use, codependency and avoidance of sex or relationships), substance abuse and eating disorders.

You are not sure what you need, where to turn; you feel strange reaching out for support - you wonder if you are even worth helping. You’ve tried a lot of things to help yourself - mindfulness, meditation, yoga, exercise and more. You are relieved for a time, until it all comes back, sometimes worse than before. On the outside, you pride yourself on being an intelligent person, a strong individual, a committed worker, a loyal friend. Perhaps you identify as a member of the LBGTQ+ community. Yet these days you find yourself spinning inside. You can’t shake these feelings of being out of control. Sometimes your behavior really is.

I can assure you: you are worth it. You’ve decided to seek out therapy because a part of you already knows this. You don’t yet know how, but you are ready to lead a mindful, insight-filled life – both inwardly & outwardly. You are ready to access that deep calm and compassion within yourself, no matter what difficulties you face every day.

My goal is to offer you the comfort and encouragement you need to heal in the midst of your circumstances while providing you with practical tools to help you live life as fully as possible. I want you to know that what you are experiencing is a normal reaction to hard circumstances. One of my personal passions is helping people become mentally and emotionally free from the things that have weighed them down and caused them shame! Shame is the emotion that motivates you to want to hide, keep secrets and prevents you from sharing who you really are with others. This creates loneliness and feelings of disconnection. My hope is to bring more freedom and confidence into your life!

Welcome! I believe that one of the most important components to good therapy is a safe, attuned environment in which you can receive strategic support in hearing your own voice. Often, we dismiss our voice or intuition. Therapy can be a place to allow our true emotions to be expressed, enabling us to hear what we may not be listening to in our everyday life. Together, we will uncover the often unspoken and align with your true values.

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.
