Co-dependency can be difficult to recognize because it often looks like generosity or compassion. Both of these characteristics are important and admirable – until you find yourself suffering.

Often, you can identify co-dependency by noticing whether you frequently prioritize the needs of someone (or something) else at the expense of your own happiness. Perhaps your needs are so intertwined with someone or something, that you can’t imagine pulling back.

If this dynamic speaks to you, it’s possible that somewhere, at some time in your life you learned that securing and maintaining love is achieved by giving yourself away. Or, perhaps you’ve intuited that having boundaries is unacceptable and you begin to fear abandonment.

My goal is to help you identify the dynamics in your life that are not serving you well. We will look at where you are losing yourself, and help you find ways to balance self-care along with your valued relationships.
