Codependency is a dysfunction that causes individuals to lose themselves in relationships. Codependents ignore their feelings, needs, and problems while obsessing on the feelings, needs, and problems of others. They possess an exaggerated sense of responsibility for others and struggle with maintaining healthy boundaries. Thus, they experience relationships as stressful and often suffer from anxiety, depression, guilt, and resentment.
Pathways Counseling Services works with codependents in Scottsdale to help them find a healthy balance between caring for others and caring for themselves.
