"I work with a variety of clients and conditions while focusing on helping individuals, couples and families who live work-away lifestyles; often including military members, camp workers, business travelers, students and their families. Accessibility is a core value of my practice so comprehensive services are available online and in-office. For parents, lawyers and judges, I write Views of the Child Reports in order for children's views to be heard in matters where their best interests are being determined. I practice therapy through an integrative lens, examining body, mind and spirit as valuable parts to a healthy whole."

"I have a passion for working with those who are experiencing, or interested in, sexual, gender, or relationship diversity. I have focused primarily on an individual's exploration of the grey areas they find themselves in when it comes to these often unspoken, but absolutely necessary parts of life. I love working with folks who identify as LGBTQ; want to support a loved one who has come out as LGBTQ; are exploring sexual interests; desire unconventional relationship structures (e.g., polyamory, non-monogamy); identify as sex workers; or who want to learn more about sexual desire, gender expression, or trauma/anxiety and sexuality."

Peer Relationships in Victoria

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Victoria

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Victoria

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Victoria or for a Victoria peer relationship Counsellor these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counselling in Victoria and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Counsellors, peer relationship psychologists in Victoria and peer relationship counsellors.
