What is Codependency? If you are reading this, you are probably wondering exactly what codependency really means, what it is related to, and if there is such a thing as codependency in relationships.

What is Codependency

Codependent is simply a behavioral disorder in a relationship in which one person allows the other to have an addiction, bad mental health, impulsive self-negativism, irresponsibility or even underachievement. Among the main characteristics of codependent personality is an overwhelming sense of identity and reliance on others for acceptance. It is very difficult for the person who suffers from codependent personality disorder to admit he or she has a problem, even though the person is always seeking love and acceptance from those that he or she associates with.

Although there are no known cures for codependent personality disorder, there are many things that you can do to try to change your loved one’s behavior. First, let him or her know that you are concerned about his or her addiction or poor mental state. If you are able to make him or her realize that he or she needs to take responsibility for his or her behavior, then you have made progress.

Codependent personality disorder is not easily recognized and therefore it is not easy to get rid of. This is because codependents have a great sense of shame and fear about their behaviors and they try to hide them. However, when a loved one comes clean about his or her addiction or other mental disorders, then he or she is typically encouraged by their family and friends to get treatment. Codependents must also realize that they need help to be better family and friends.

Because of this, it is essential that parents and guardians are able to step up and act as role models for their loved ones. As adults, it is essential for them to learn how to take responsibility for their actions, especially when it comes to dealing with their own behaviors.

While it may be hard for a loved one to admit that he or she has a problem, it is essential to support him or her by telling him or her that you are aware of his or her issues and that you want him or her to seek treatment. to get better. This will encourage him or her to acknowledge his or her problems and help him or her find help in overcoming them.

My goal in establishing my counseling services, is to have a peaceful location for individuals and families to meet their needs and achieve their goals. I am dedicated to helping people better their quality of life. My diverse experience includes consulting with individuals, couples, families, teenagers and children from all various cultural, racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. I work with patients with all types of diagnoses, including (but not restricted to): depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, adjustment conditions, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and ADHD. I have extensive experience in working with unruly children with behavior disorders. These children often experience symptoms of anger/aggression and have low self-esteem. I am dedicated to strengthening connectivity within family relationships and strengthened family harmony. I tend to bring a theoretical approach to my work which centers on various forms of therapy including cognitive behavioral, anecdotal, solution based and expressive therapy in my work with kids. I applaud all prospective clients in taking the initial step in seeking psychotherapy. Should you think I can be of service to you and your family, I can be reached at (972) 529-1256.
