"Trauma related to childhood abandonment, or early childhood neglect and abuse can really halt one's happiness. When living with unresolved feelings related to a difficult past, you can get stuck in a vicious cycle of stress and overwhelm. Shining a light on pain and trauma from the past can bring fresh perspectives and powerful life changing breakthroughs. The reality is that pain can turn into your greatest inspirations in life. Stop letting pain and depression rob your days of the joy and fulfillment that you deserve in life. Therapy can strengthen and grow the most important relationships in your life. "

Peer Relationships in 18104

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 18104

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 18104

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.
