I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

My decades of experience in providing high quality mental health care have taught me that the best care involves a combination of compassionate listening along with effective interventions. All of us have had problems with other people, places, and things in our lifetimes. Some of us have problems within our own selves, being unduly self-critical, or lacking in self compassion or confidence. And, yet, every one of us, also, almost inexplicably, has experienced states of being where "Life is good" where flow and adaptation reside and where we learn how to "live Life on Life's terms", freeing ourselves from unrealistic expectations.

We often try to avoid painful or uncomfortable emotions, such as sadness, anger, resentment or grief. But doing so renders them difficult to work through.

Peer Relationships in 78759

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 78759

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem.
