"Love Addiction"/Intimacy Disorders/Emotional Dependency
"Love Addiction"(attachment dysregulation)/emotional dependency, intimacy avoidance, poor boundary setting, and fear of partnerships are only a few ways intimacy struggles can manifest. Some of my clients report struggling to leave toxic relationships, and when they finally do, falling head first into another one! Other clients report inability to assert their needs without feeling guilty for being "TOO NEEDY". These struggles create incredible pain, shame, anxiety, and depression for those afflicted. You are not BROKEN and there is HOPE!
I help women, men, and couples struggling in unhealthy and repetitive relational patterns, creating increased levels of self worth, love, and acceptance. From there we set up safe/solid dating plans or current relational structure, as you engage in healthier partnerships.
I've studied with the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH) and have been certified by Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS). This background provides me with extensive knowledge and experience treating women, men, and couples struggling with Love Addiction, Intimacy Disorders, and Emotional Dependency as well as betrayed partners and families.
