Session 35: Am I Codependent?

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

This week’s episode features Nedra Glover Tawwab, LCSW. Nedra and I chatted about the definition of codependency, how to know if the definition fits you, how someone becomes codependent, and strategies you can use to become less codependent.
