Relationships and Codependency
Relationships are a cornerstone of human connection, whether it be family relationships, romantic/intimate relationships, or our relationship with ourselves. Because relationships are so important in life, it also means that many issues can arise from them. Difficulties in relationships can lead to struggles of trusting self and others, feelings of isolation, or emotional dependence on others.
Codependency often affects a spouse/partner, a parent, sibling, or friend where self-esteem or self-worth will only come from the other individual. This can lead to a circular relationship, which is the "cycle" of codependency. Codependent relationships are often learned through early-life experiences, typically from parents or caregivers. Clinicians at Elevate Wellness can work with individuals, families, or couples to help your relationships begin forward movement towards healing and wellness.
