  • ℹ️ Published 9 months ago

In this video I'm answering your questions regarding choosing the appropriate Therapist for ACOA Adult Children of Alcoholics and Drug Addicts, Handling Alcoholic Parents/Relatives and the Validity of Emotions.

What ares some factors that go into choosing an appropriate therapist? Alliance, empathy, goals, cultural competency.

Living with alcoholic parents - boundaries, self care, possible communication, separation planning

Are emotions always valid? - Yes, they are but that does not mean you have to act on them

Leave your questions in the comments and I will answer them in the next Q&A session!

Very timely video Sofya. I've been with a counselor for almost 5 years and I feel he addressed my former toxic relationship but I feel I need to address these ACA issues. I feel he guided me in a career search but we hit an empasse. I like him a lot but I need a new approach especially for my dependency issues. Really just expressing myself. A decade sober and half that time in ACA.
