Are You Struggling With Codependency?
Codependency describes relationships where one person sacrifices their needs for the other, often leading to feelings of resentment, anxiety, and emptiness. Codependent relationships can occur between a parent and child, partners, or friends. These relationships may quickly spiral into toxicity and can leave one or both people hurt.
Available Treatment Options
Therapists for codependency involve examining a person’s thinking patterns to understand why they think and behave the way they do. Once this recognition sets in, people can then work toward changing their behavior. Other therapeutic techniques include practicing setting boundaries in the relationships, practicing self-care, and finding coping mechanisms that work when they feel intense emotions related to the relationship.
