Therapy for Codependency
Jennifer Leupp, LCSW in California
Are you feeling anxious or stressed in your relationships?
Maybe your loved one is addicted to alcohol or drugs, or perhaps your they have a mental health diagnosis such as Narcissistic Personality Disorder or Bipolar Disorder. You may be driving yourself mad trying to help them recover, or are simply fed up with constantly giving but not getting anything in return. Perhaps you’re feeling beat down and taken advantage of.
Whatever it is that you’re experiencing, you’re beginning to notice the impact of this in every facet of your life:
- Struggling to stay focused and productive at work
- Constantly obsessing over your loved one’s problems
- Feeling guilty because no matter what you do they are not getting better
Therapy for Codependency can help.
It may feel impossible now, but you can find relief. You can find yourself in all this. You can break free from this maddening cycle. And I can help you get there.
Therapy for Codependency helps you do 3 things:
- Identify the root of the problems you’re experiencing
- Understand the way you and your loved ones relate
- Learn how to set boundaries, so you can feel empowered in your relationships.
I’ll help through this process, tailoring each step to your unique needs and circumstances. My approach to Therapy for Codependency comes from a place of hope: believing that it’s possible for reflection, awareness and encouragement can support you in healing.
You don’t have to live life feeling Stressed, Anxious and Guilty.
I can help you get there.
Q: What are Therapy for Codependency sessions like?
A: Each session will look different depending on what is coming up for you in your life. We may focus on something current or we may delve into the past. We will take a look at your thought patterns and I will teach you how to reframe your thoughts so that you feel more balanced. I will also teach you mindfulness techniques which can help you feel more grounded and less stressed and anxious. We may try EMDR, an evidence based treatment for trauma, to address any difficult memories which are impacting you today.
Q: How long do I need to be in therapy?
The length of therapy will generally depend on your specific needs. For the nature of our work, many clients stay prefer to stay in therapy for 6 months to 3 years. EMDR Therapy can often help speed up the process, although many people prefer the support of longer term talk therapy. Ultimately the length of your treatment is up to you.
Q: How do I know if Therapy for Codependency will work for me?
A: Therapy for Codependency will work for you if you are struggling with setting boundaries or saying no, pleasing, helping or fixing others. An experienced Codependency Therapist I enjoy supporting clients in feeling more empowered in their lives.
