Adult Children Of Dysfunctional Families

Dr. Whiten works very productively with individuals struggling with the effects of growing up in a dysfunctional home.  There are unique challenges faced by people who grew up in difficult environments; read about some of these here.  

If your parent(s) struggled with co-dependency, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, hoarding, intense conflict, emotional avoidance, narcissism, Borderline Personality Disorder, bipolar disorder, or other issues, you likely did not learn how to interact "normally" and often feel uncomfortable in certain situations despite how outwardly successful you may appear.  

Reach out for help if this describes you.  Dr. Whiten can help you understand the far-reaching consequences of your early life experiences (no matter how well-intentioned your family member may have been).  When you truly understand the impact of your origins on your current self-concept and relationship patterns, you can use practical tools to develop a stronger and more confident self, and healthier interactions with others.
