Trauma bonding doesn’t just happen in romantic relationships, but can also happen in parent-child relationships, amongst friends and siblings, etc.

If your relationships feels unstable and codependent it could be a trauma based bond.

"Imagine if every time you heard your partner vent or share their tough day you said:
'Do you need me to just listen, or do you want me to help you brainstorm what to do next?'

Imagine if every time you were about to vent or share a tough day with your partner you said:
'I would really appreciate if you just listen to me, not problem solve. I just want to be heard.'

IDK about you, but I think that would shift a lot of the directions for my conversations 🎉"

Recently a past client reached out for the sole purpose of sharing how well they are doing. They shared how they have experienced improvements in their relationships. They shared how they have successfully implemented skills learned during their time in counseling and provided general updates about their life. I was excited to get this update, and so honored that in the midst of their personal reflection, they thought to share this moment with me. Then I was struck by the thought, “This is what counseling is all about”.
Counseling does not turn your life into a fairy tale. Counseling doesn’t remove all the challenges from your life, and it doesn’t even always repair what is broken. It does not always make the depression and anxiety go away. It doesn’t erase the terrible experiences you’ve had along the way. Counseling doesn’t change the fact that you might still face challenges that seem insurmountable. It does not “fix” you or magically make life perfect. What counseling does is provide the skills and tools to more successfully navigate the challenges and obstacles encountered on this journey called life. It helps you to process and regulate those overwhelming emotions. It is a safe place to face those wounds and those terrible experiences, in order to heal and grow. Counseling offers an unequivocal ally always ready in your corner, walking alongside you on your journey, and rooting for you, and yes, at times, sitting with you in those dark places letting you know that it is okay to not be okay.
If you are considering counseling, please know that it is not a sign of weakness or even brokenness. It is a place of healing, growth, and empowerment. You are not alone, and you don’t have to face life’s challenges alone. Reach out, take that next step in your journey toward healing, and growth.

Setting boundaries with ourselves as well as with others can be one of the most challenging endeavors in gaining peace and prioritizing your own mental health. This one challenging feat, once accomplished, can be on of the most freeing experiences and will help cement a peaceful lifestyle.

Sitting with strong emotions can be very uncomfortable. The natural tendency can be to avoid them or shut them down. However, sitting with them, feeling them, and expressing them are the methods through which we achieve healing.
