Codependency is when we make decision for ourself that consider those around us more than we are considering ourselves even when it does not serve us. Many people want to feel needed, yet hold in resentment when they are making decisions that benefit everyone around them but not themselves. In the context of couples, it is important to consider each individual and their needs. Together, we will work towards helping you find your worth outside of being needed by others.
We live in a society that consistently sets us up to compare ourselves to those around us. This can have such a negative impact on our self-esteem. It is so valuable to give yourself the care and compassion you deserve in order to cherish the most authentic version of yourself. This includes considering all of the different parts of yourself, even the ones you may not want to shine a light on, and love these parts just as they are and the purpose they serve.
I am passionate about working with women to validate the ebbs and flows of womanhood and what comes alongside it. A woman's hormonal cycle is 28 days, while a man's is 24 hours. As women, our days feel very different than a man's, which makes it challenging to "keep up" with the patriarchy we are told to keep up with. Considering a women's cycle, hormones, and other issues is so important when talking about mental health. I would love to walk alongside you as we consider this lens!
