Hi, I'm Jacob. I'm a traveler, a reader, an outoorsman and a plant collector. I'm a Therapist, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, and a Wilderness First Responder. In 2013 I graduated with an MSW from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. There, I obtained specialty certificates in Substance Abuse Counseling and School Social Work. I've aided middle schoolers, adolescents and people in their 20's/30s to transition from angry and confused to calmer and empowered. My goal is to get real work done, but also have fun along the way.

I believe that everyone can benefit from finding someone to talk to about life's challenges. I also recognize how hard this can be. As a therapist, my first priority upon meeting with clients is to make them feel comfortable. I offer a non judgmental space and work collaboratively with clients to develop solutions to their problems. I work hard at simply connecting with my clients in a very real and authentic way. I spend time understanding their unique challenges and tailor my treatment approach to the individual. I work with individuals, couples, and families; young adults and adults.

Peer Relationships in 20814

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 20814

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 20814

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 20814 or for a 20814 peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in 20814 and peer relationship advice.
