Codependency is an equal opportunity destroyer. It doesn’t care what you look like, where you live or how much money you make. Jennifer can help.

Jennifer has been in recovery from her addictions since 2004, has her degrees in Drug and Alcohol Counseling and in Human Services and is the author of the best-selling book on Amazon: “STOP IT! Don’t Compare Your Insides with Other People’s Outsides.” With the purchase of one of her programs, you will receive a copy for FREE.

She will guide you through the 12 Steps of Codependent's Anonymous, in the privacy of your own home. This is meant to be an introductory course to begin your recovery. It will contain video of Jennifer sharing her experience, strength and hope, printable worksheets, and daily emotional, physical and spiritual exercises. She'll give you guidance to help break the cycle of your addictive behaviors. You can complete the 12 steps at your own pace and on your own schedule.

You’ll be invited to join our CLOSED and PRIVATE Addiction Recovery Facebook page, where you’ll meet others recovering from their various addictions. There you will find inspiration and support to help you through your journey to recovery.


Codependency is a self-diagnosed disease (“disease” - meaning you are not at-ease with yourself). No one else can diagnose you. Please feel free to answer the questions below to assess if you feel you have a problem with codependency. If you find yourself answering “Yes” to some of these questions, this program may be exactly what you’ve been looking for:

  • Do you tolerate mistreatment from people in hopes of being loved?
  • Do you depend on people who are emotionally unavailable to care for you?
  • Do you feel compelled to help people to feel better or to solve their problems?
  • Do you rescue others from the consequences of their irresponsible behavior?
  • Do you feel empty, bored, or unimportant if you’re not helping someone or responding to a crisis?
  • Is it hard for you to say “no” when someone asks you for help?
  • Is it hard for you to ask for help?
  • In close relationships do you lose interest in your own life?
  • Are you quick to get angry about injustices done to others?
  • Do you often talk about other people and their problems?
  • Do you worry about how other people are feeling?
  • Do you worry about other people’s opinions of you?
  • Do you keep quiet to avoid conflicts with people?
  • Is it hard for you to talk with a boss or someone else in authority?
  • Do you feel more comfortable giving to others rather than receiving from them?
  • Is it difficult for you to receive attention, compliments, or gifts from others?

The questions you answered “yes” to indicate that you struggle with that characteristic of codependency. If you have five or more yes answers or if you answered yes to any question that is very painful or problematic for you then you may have a problem with codependency.


How did you do on the questions above? Yup, we are powerless over People, Places and Things. The sooner that's realized, the better we will feel.

Becoming more real and genuine in your relationships is a gift you give to both yourself and to the others in your life. Learning how to tell people the truth about how you feel, as well as about what you are (and aren’t) willing to do for them is an act of love, honesty and personal integrity.

As you learn how to deal with potentially unpleasant reactions from others, you can begin to change your people-pleasing patterns. This is the key to unlocking a whole new world of being a self-respecting, authentic and genuine person in your relationships. Jennifer can help.
