You see codependency in so many clients… and yet, many therapists skip over directly treating it.

Your clients are left suffering with a lack of boundaries, obsessively people pleasing, blaming themselves endlessly, self-sabotaging and unable to make simple decisions…

To make matters worse… They’re often in toxic relationships experiencing narcissistic abuse, gaslighting and have layers of attachment trauma.

Get your codependent clients to learn new skills AND take them beyond the walls of the therapy room to radically change their lives.

Join Krystal Mazzola, LMFT whose dedicated her career to breaking codependent clients free of the shackles of painful relationships, self-hate and more.

Krystal Mazzola Wood, LMFT's Profile

Krystal Mazzola Wood, LMFT Related seminars and products


Krystal Mazzola Wood, LMFT, is a licensed marriage and family therapist, author, and codependency expert. Krystal received her undergraduate degree in gender studies and human sexuality from the University of Arizona. She then attended the University of Oregon to pursue their couples and family therapy master’s program in 2009. It was highly important to Krystal to attend an inclusive program as this was prior to the Marriage Equality Act.

Krystal gained her expertise in codependency by working at The Meadows, a world-renowned treatment center. Here, Krystal trained under pioneering codependency expert, Pia Mellody. Throughout this time, Krystal has been fascinated by the systems in which people suffer – and recover – from the beginning of her career. This systemic focus led her to create her five-step codependency recovery system, which is featured in her book, The Codependency Recovery Plan: A 5-Step Guide to Understand, Accept, and Break Free from the Codependent Cycle. To support readers further, she then wrote The Codependency Workbook: Simple Practices for Developing and Maintaining Your Independence.

Krystal’s systemic focus also led her to a four-part program for health boundaries. This program is featured in her current training at PESI, CBT, DBT & EMDR Strategies to Free Clients from Codependency, Narcissistic Abuse & Attachment Trauma.

Krystal currently treats individual and couples’ clients experiencing codependency at her practice, The Healthy Relationship Foundation. She is currently working on her third book due late 2022, Self-Love Made Possible: The 5-Step Guide to Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy and Become Your Own Best Friend. She also contributes weekly to her blog for empowering dating advice, Confidently Authentic.
