I am also here for your child or teen who may be feeling stuck with anxiety or difficulties with peers.
You might feel like your emotions are all over the place and struggle to find the balance point. You can be really hard on yourself, passing harsh judgements, and perhaps at times feeling worthless. This can be painful and exhausting. It hurts you and it hurts your relationships. I can help you understand where this comes from, and how these patterns are impacting your life and your relationships in the present. You will regain confidence and experience more compassion towards yourself. Your loved ones will notice more lightness in your step.

Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Castro Valley and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
