Therapists Specializing in Codependency in Texas

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.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, lonely or having conflict in your relationships? I am here to help. I believe in treating each patient individually. Some types of clients and problems respond better to some types of interventions than others. Often the presenting problems of anxiety and depression are merely the surface of more long standing difficulties. I work to assess what each patient needs most. While compassionate and nonjudgmental I challenge clients to strive for their best selves. Change can sometimes be difficult but we can navigate it together.

The common denominator in virtually all of my clients' struggles and problems is the lack of relationship with Self.

The relationship with your Self is the most important relationship. It's the “X-factor” for empowerment, change through awareness and action, and what makes transformation possible.

The common denominator in virtually all of the problems and symptoms that bring people to therapy is relationships, past and current and there is a prevailing lack of knowhow to boot.

Most of the relationships I work come in are mired in discord and disconnection due to the backlog of unexpressed feelings and unresolved issues that never get any airtime and a palpable wedge of mistrust and unsafety between them

Relationships are as good as the conversations had. Can you talk to each other? How much do you talk to each other? What can you talk about? But, more importantly, how well do they understand each other and feel in the process.

Usually the first conversation I facilitate and one you can expect to have, one I consider to be perhaps the most standard and basic one every couple needs to be able to have is, How are you feeling in the relationship and towards each other?

I create a safe space for you to begin having these ‘more difficult’ conversations and facilitate a process that ensures that you talk and listen to each other in a way, and about things, you never did before.

While my methods are grounded in evidence-based practices, my style is unique, down-to-earth and non-traditional. I'm also realistic, charismatic and compassionate. I apply humor when necessary and take great pride in challenging you to rise to your own occasion. Being able to step back and take an observational view of your life and consider a different perspective is integrated into my practice and a large part of what excites me about this work. I'll collaborate with you to get where you want to be in a way that makes the most sense to you.

I want to help you realign your head and heart in order to trust your intuition. Doing this allows you to live your life from a strength-based deep understanding of yourself, propelling you toward achieving self-actualization! You already have the characteristics, tools, and passion you need for everything you want, we may just need to make a few adjustments to rejuvenate those qualities or go even deeper to heal pain from past trauma.

Wether you're here to heal primarily or using our time to catapult you to your greatest heights, I'm looking forward to taking that journey with you.

When you are in pain or confused, it's not always easy to know where to go or with whom to talk. Therapy offers you a safe and confidential space to tell your story and explore that story's effect on your life right now. With support and feedback, I offer my clients an opportunity to feel more at peace with who they are and to make new decisions about themselves. You may even feel ready to try new behaviors and change the story of your life.

I tend to be informal and interactive and am focused on your goals for therapy. The most important aspect of the therapeutic experience is developing a relationship with someone you can trust. As a result, I try to keep it simple and work with the concerns that you want to address.

I am available to meet in person or via Tele-health video as well as secure electronic registration and payment. Our office follows Covid-19 protocols that allow for social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing.

Do you feel like you are not good enough and life feels overwhelming and out of control? Don't worry you are not alone. In my work with my clients I help them learn tools to find balance in their lives and work toward accessing and maintaining what to them feels like happiness. Choosing the path of growth and transformation takes a lot of courage and is the first step towards empowerment and change.

I would like to be a part of this new positive life changing journey that you are about to start. It might consist of coping with anxiety, ending of a relationship or resistance in starting a relationship. It might mean managing life transitions or healing from a traumatic experience. In doing so I would like to help you gain skills to redefine yourself, find your self worth, gain greater self confidence, prioritize yourself, gain self acceptance and letting go of judgement.

I respect the risk that is involved with rendering oneself vulnerable in the presence of another, and I offer a nonjudgmental, collaborative opportunity to explore concerns deemed relevant by you. I am invested in understanding your concerns in the context of your life experience and discovering opportunities to heighten your awareness regarding the influences of your past and how you can apply this understanding to better cope with current challenges.

I work with young and older adults who are trying to balance school, career, relationships or are trying to take a different approach towards caring for their mental health. I have specific experience working with anxiety and mood disorders.

I welcome the opportunity to discover whether we might be a good fit as you work towards your goals. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have that might help facilitate this.

Finding the right therapist that you can trust and forge a healthy working relationship with is critical to your healing journey. My passion is trauma intervention and resolution. Trauma has a multi-dimensional impact and effects each person in a unique way. Regardless of the type of trauma you are dealing with, the proper intervention, with the proper therapist can help you thrive, mentally, physically and spiritually. To bear witness to your healing is both and honor and privilege. My primary concern is to help you recover, and to become aware of your inner strengths. In part, this can be achieved by providing you with a safe and nonjudgmental space, listening to you, and customizing a treatment plan tailored to meet your goals. I promise to be there for you, and to share in your journey. My greatest desire is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I am happy to chat before we meet to ensure we are a good fit.

Together we can work through trauma, addiction, interpersonal relationships, communication conflicts, and anxiety management, so that you can start living a happier, stress free, and more fulfilled life!

I believe that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. When this doesn't happen, we often find ourselves isolated and feeling alone - even when surrounded by others.

I will create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you’re sometimes afraid to look at. I will help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self. I can help you get unstuck and discover who you really are. I can help you overcome the pain of rejection and embrace your authentic self.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be challenging, but you won’t regret it. By now, you have already learned ways to tolerate life’s painful challenges. You don’t have to do this alone. Take the next step and call me today.

Life is a gift, a song waiting to be sung. But life can be hard. Whether it’s a lifetime of bad breaks, heart-rending losses, crippling anxiety or you’re looking to occupy your place in the sun, we can encourage new skills and a mindset to thrive. Building a rich and meaningful life means taking a risk. As your ally, I take that risk with you. I help make your growth simple--not effortless, but simple and achievable..

I base my work on a deep belief in the power of the therapeutic relationship. I also deeply believe in the effectiveness of research-supported techniques like CBT, DBT, ACT. But it’s the therapeutic relationship that brings those techniques to life. It creates a dynamic synergy that’s larger than the sum of its parts -- like H20 is more than Hydrogen and Oxygen. I offer psychoeducation, role-plays and often ask my clients to journal between sessions with words, music, art or poetry to help process their emotions. I’ll walk with you as we look back on the past and we’ll look forward to envision what could be. We’ll detect the pivot points, anticipate the roadblocks and try out your work-arounds.

My special passion is integrating my clients’ religious/spiritual beliefs into traditional therapy. I identify as Christian but I’m religiously multi-lingual. I was raised in the church but I’ve been around the block. Of course, it’s not necessary but if you’d like, we can integrate your spiritual life into psychological traditions.

Welcome and congratulations on taking this first courageous step. I’m so glad you’re here!

I view therapy as an opportunity to connect with you, and then work together to incorporate practices that will address your unique experience and help you to approach life in a more fulfilling way.

As people, we do our best work and lean in to vulnerability when we feel known and accepted. In addition to listening, I believe relatability, humor and feedback are all valuable in creating that relationship. I have training and experience that guide my work, but you are the expert on you, and first and foremost I believe it's my role to help you build that knowledge so you can bring it to session.

Our relationship will be collaborative and active so you feel supported, confident in our approach, and most importantly heard and invested. I am a therapist because I love the work, I believe in the process, and because I’ve gained so much from my own personal therapy.

Talk to you soon,
