Codependence and Love Addiction with Jodi White, LPC

In this episode, I unpack codependence, developmental trauma and love addiction with Jodi White, a psychotherapist, sober recovering love addict and host of “Journals of a Love Addict.”

Jodi and talk about:

  1. The 5 core symptoms of codependence

  2. How dysfunctional families set the stage for being over or anti-dependent

  3. What love addiction is and how it’s different from codependency

  4. Developing a Functional Adult Self to care for our “inner woundeds”

  5. How experiential learning bypasses the ‘thinking brain’ to heal trauma
