Therapy for Love Addiction

Do you continue to get into relationships with people who you know aren’t healthy?

Do relationships go from intensely close to dramatic and volatile in short periods of time?

Are you often accused of being needing or controlling in your relationships?

Love addiction therapy can help. By utilizing work developed by Pia Mellody, who is the leading proponent in the field of Love Addiction, we will help you work on core issues that exacerbate love addiction. Together we can help you understand the relationship cycles that can keep you from the kinds of intimacy that you want to have with a partner. Relationship chaos, toxicity, and hopelessness can be overcome with such help.

You don’t have to contend with ongoing issues with relationship drama, fear, and loneliness. Love addiction therapy can help you identify where boundaries may have let you down. You can learn to detox in your relationship, so that you can build a genuine closeness with your partner, which is not filled with consistent and ongoing hurt. This will break cycles of relationship shame, hurt, and resentment, and move towards genuine intimacy.

Love addiction is when fantasy of love overpowers true intimacy. But it doesn’t have to always be this way.

Although recovery for love addiction can be a long journey, it’s not an impossible one. As people learn more about themselves, they can better balance boundaries and self-esteem. As a result, relationships tend to improve in just a natural way. These relationships are not filled with imbalances of trust. Rather, they are filled with genuine intimacy and love.

Recovery from love addiction doesn’t mean that you live a life alone.

Many fear that acceptance of their own love addiction means that they will not find someone in their lives. Although love addiction therapy doesn’t mean that you will find someone who is a perfect match, you’re more likely to meet a good match when you’re further into recovery. People are more likely to be attracted to the true you, as they are better able to see who that person is. Love addiction therapy can help you discover this person, and allow potential partners to get to know the wonderful things about that person.
