Counseling for Unhealthy Relationships & People Pleasers

If you’re in an unhealthy relationship & you’re a people pleaser, counseling can help!

You hate to disappoint people.

Being a helper is second nature to you and honestly a part of yourself that you really value and appreciate. Your friends and family always know they can turn to you. You’re the compassionate one, the great listener, the one that will be there at a moment’s notice…

But being the go to person in all of your circles is really starting to wear on you.

You’re noticing that your difficulty saying "no" is starting to impact several areas of your life,

including your relationships with people that you care about. In fact, sometimes you wonder if people would even want to be around you if you weren’t so damn reliable. You find yourself instinctively saying yes when you don’t actually have the time, energy or resources which is creating resentment in your life.

If this sounds like you - if you’re looking for counseling while in an unhealthy relationship & you’re a people pleaser, let's connect! Contact me for a free initial consultation and let me help you.

Maybe you are afraid of bad reactions to setting boundaries, or have even tried to set some boundaries for yourself but find that you usually end up caving leading you to feel like a bit of a push-over.. (Cue self-judgment)

Being able to tune into other people’s feelings and needs is a wonderful skill,

and it was probably a necessity at some point in your life…a way for you to have your own needs fulfilled when they weren’t.

But like many things in life, too much of a good thing… well… isn’t good. Meeting the needs of others to the point you forget about yourself inevitably causes harm in the long run.

Maybe you’re not totally sold on the idea of therapy. You look around and see so many people “worse off than you”… but you do know you are not happy and are teetering on the edge…


  • Not always being wrapped up in how others might perceive you
  • Being able to say what’s on your mind freely and naturally and not be afraid of bad reaction to setting boundaries
  • Being able to say “No” when that is what’s in your best interest
  • Feeling more respected by those around you

If these feel like goals you’d love to achieve, contact me for a free consultation.

Counseling with a focus on unhealthy relationships and people pleasers can help you understand your patterns and make meaningful change!
