Embracing Healthy Dependency

Embracing Healthy Dependency

Many people view dependency as something to be avoided. We are taught from a young age that we should strive for independence, and while there is value in being independent, there is also a lot of value in embracing healthy dependency. An effective balance between the two can lead to greater happiness and satisfaction in life. If you live in Winter Park and are seeking counseling services, Orlando Thrive Therapy can help you find that balance.

The Benefits of Healthy Dependency

There are many benefits to embracing healthy dependency, such as feeling more secure in your relationships with others, having a better understanding of your own needs and wants, and feeling more confident when it comes to facing challenges or making decisions. We all need support sometimes - whether it’s emotional or physical - and allowing yourself to lean on those around you can help you feel secure and connected.

At Orlando Thrive Therapy, we understand that no two people are alike and what works for one person may not work for another. Our approach emphasizes the importance of understanding how different types of dependencies affect each individual differently so we can provide tailored advice specific to that person’s needs. This includes understanding the different types of dependencies – both positive and negative – so we can create an effective plan for finding balance within each individual’s unique situation.

Identifying Your Needs

The first step towards finding this balance is identifying our needs and assessing our current level of dependency on others. At Orlando Thrive Therapy, we use a variety of techniques to help individuals recognize their needs and identify areas where they could benefit from greater autonomy or interdependence with others. Once these needs have been identified, we work together with clients to develop strategies that will allow them to reach their goals while still maintaining healthy levels of dependence on those around them.


At Orlando Thrive Therapy, our goal is to help individuals find balance between independence and healthy dependency so they can live happier lives with less stress and worry. We understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to managing their dependencies on others - which is why we take an individualized approach when creating treatment plans for our clients.
