Codependency involves sacrificing your needs for the needs of other people in your life. It's when there's a shift in focus from you to others. Codependency occurs in unhealthy and unbalanced relationships and you may feel like to need to save others. Codependency counseling can help you develop healthy boundaries in relationships, learn strategies to increase you individual self-esteem and autonomy and build coping mechanisms for separation and individuation.
Depression can often times leave you feeling sad, numb, lack energy and stuck for long periods of time. It can sometimes cause an impact on your thought patterns and physical health, and can happen to anyone, literally anyone. Depression is not a sign of weakness or laziness. Depression counseling provides you with support and promotes healing of hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, loss of interest and pleasure in life, and negative self-talk.
