Even though it looks like you “have it all together” on the surface, inside it might feel like a very different place.

You might be quietly (or not so quietly) acting out compulsively with self-defeating behaviours such as:

  • substance use

  • unhealthy sexual behaviour

  • constantly searching for the ‘perfect’ relationship

  • overlooking your wants and needs in a relationship because you fear being alone

  • creating drama in relationships and unmanageability in your life

  • moving from distraction to distraction

  • codependency

  • over-spending

  • workaholism

Or anything else you can find to provide a means of escape.

Underneath it all, the reality is that you might be using these things to cope with trauma that has happened somewhere earlier in your life.

Somewhere along the way your needs did not get met.

You may have experienced neglect, inconsistent care or feelings of abandonment. And whether you are aware of it or not, these current life problems you are experiencing have roots that run deep.

If you can relate to any of these scenarios it’s important for you to know that change is possible.

I help working professionals in Vancouver deal with addiction, codependency and with the effects of relational/developmental trauma.

Many of my clients have struggled to feel at peace with themselves. Often they have not been validated by the most important people in their lives - including themselves. This has led to feelings of profound disconnection and using to self-defeating behaviours to deal with their distress. 

The therapeutic relationship is where healing can happen. It may very well be one the first times you feel safe enough to "be with" your emotions and to experience someone who respects and validates you.
