Codependency and Dependent Personality Disorder Therapy in VA Beach

Do you notice signs in your relationships that things might not be healthy? Do you see signs in the relationships of others that things may not be as healthy as they could be? Perhaps you have noticed signs of Codependency or a more serious condition, that of Dependent Personality Disorder.

When emotional bonds between two people move beyond that which is considered healthy and normal, it falls under the realm of “codependency”. It is important to note here that it is perfectly natural to have some degree of emotional tie or dependency in relationships, but not to the degree that both or one of the individuals in the relationship cannot function alone.

If you or someone you know shows signs that they are no longer able to function alone and they may suffer from Codependency or Dependent Personality Disorder, it might be best to recommend therapy.

What to Look out for

But when can you tell if therapy is really necessary? Determining the point at which therapy is necessary is really up to the person who has the problem. If you are not the person suffering, you can only support and encourage the person you know to take the appropriate steps. If you are the one who is suffering, you can start to seek out therapy when you are no longer able to function on your own.
