I believe that therapy is most effective when provided in an authentic and nonjudgmental setting between two equals. Through my practice I have found that many issues can be alleviated or improved by making behavioral changes and sessions tend toward these present-oriented approaches, such as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (helping to regulate out-of-control emotions), and Neurofeedback (also called EEG Biofeedback, this form of brain training is helpful for many issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, attention problems).

While the thought of therapy can be intimidating, your therapist never should be. I want my clients to understand that there is no “right answer” and as a therapist, I am not asking for one. Instead, I want to provide a place where my clients feel safe to openly and honestly express themselves, where they, as experts of their own thoughts and experiences, are in the driver seat. My job is to provide direction and support. Together, we will set goals and work towards them through a relational, empathetic, and direct approach.

Perhaps you've noticed destructive patterns in your relationships or that you keep "shooting yourself in the foot" at work. Conversations in therapy deepen understanding of distress and unproductive patterns of behavior. This new understanding and the tools you and I develop together can decrease distress and increase satisfaction with life.

Clients come to me when they are facing a challenge that they need support with. They might be wondering if there’s more to life or how they can feel more satisfaction in their lives. I can help you look at the blocks that are keeping you from reaching your goals. To do this I use a Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT) approach as well as a Solution-Focused approach. I work holistically and see individuals as part of a family or other larger system. I offer a supportive, nurturing, safe, and confidential environment in which you can explore and find solutions for what is getting in the way of the life you want to lead.

Peer Relationships in 20852

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 20852

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 20852

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.
