I approach therapy with a simple question: 

"What do you want out of life, and what is holding you back from that?" 

This question, and your answers, is where we begin the journey. I look forward to hearing from you.

Childhood

Adult Children of Alcoholics

Because living with addiction is often traumatizing, ACoAs may be left with a post traumatic stress syndrome in which painful feelings and relationship dynamics from their childhood become relived and recreated in their adult relationships.

Growing up with parents who abused alcohol creates a feeling of never knowing what to expect from one day to the next.

The Hurt

Adult Children of Alcoholics may experience many of these issues, including emotional neglect (link), and the emotional immaturity of their parents (link) because their parent’s capacity to be emotionally involved varied greatly. They may also have experienced abuse while their parent was drinking (link).
