I am best able to assist those who struggle with competitive relationships, and feelings of being on the losing side in their interactions with those they love. I have seen couples, individuals, and entire families struggling with attempts to force one another to 'win' arguments, only to find that they never seem to go away fully. Many times, other issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders,sexual dysfunction or substance abuse becomes the main issue which families show to others the competitive nature which occurs within the family system, and are most concerned when they call for an initial session.

Maybe there's been a sudden change in your life. Maybe you've been struggling with the same issues for years. While it's sometimes difficult to ask for help, I've often been described as warm & easy to talk to. Some say they feel better after the very first session & I believe you may feel the same way. People tend to seek me out during times of transition and/or when they are increasingly anxious, depressed or no longer feel in control of their lives. Let's uncover your inner strengths and increase your confidence as we talk, reflect & even laugh. "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are"... Carl Jung

Each human life is like a finger print, no two alike; both individual and unique. When we know how to listen, engage and trust the wisdom of our own lives, journeys and hearts, we become more ourselves. I view therapy as a process of learning to listen and live life more authentically, from our internal GPS, rather than from others telling us who we are, who we should be and what to think/do/etc. This process is key to life satisfaction as we become the person we were meant to be.

I believe that the work of therapy is about developing a healthy relationship with oneself and with other people in the community in order to live a happy and meaningful life. It is about finding ways to live in balance and with integrity in what can be a complicated and difficult world that does not always make that easy. Often times we need a "tune up" in handling our emotions and developing better coping skills to approach new or different circumstances in life. This is what therapy is all about. Its creating an experience that enables you to be comfortable sharing in order to grow.

Peer Relationships in 11787

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 11787

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 11787

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.

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.
