"You may have experienced a significant change in you life, and you are looking to get emotional and psychological support. You might not currently feel supported, or the current support is not enough. You might also be looking into therapy for self-improvement. In any case, you have come to the right place. It is not easy to reach out and make the first call, but it is definitely worth it as the best investment is often the one in yourself."

"Life can be challenging, and sometimes we can feel inadequate in dealing with life struggles that come our way. Sometimes we feel like we've tried everything, but for some reason we still feel stuck despite our best efforts. Although there are times in our lives when we feel great, there are also times in our lives when we feel hopeless, anxious, depressed, or even lost. Sometimes, we can pinpoint why we feel this way, and other times, these feelings seem to just come upon us for no apparent reason. Both can make life incredibly difficult."

"An accurate definition of psychology is to know your soul. With my warm presence, clients feel compassion and understanding from me, which creates an atmosphere of trust and safety to learn more about yourself, life, and relationships. I come alongside my clients to help make meaning out of their experiences. Everyone longs for a rich and full life; yet, this can be hard to find if you have a history of family hardship and pain, feel depressed or anxious, or bearing the wounds of trauma. The good news is, in therapy, you will heal! You'll put the pieces of your story back together, and create beauty and wholeness from your pain."

"All meaningful lives involve pain, there is no escaping this. Even if we cannot avoid pain, we can learn to rise above it and still create a life worth living. Life will never be unbearable due to circumstances, but only from a lack of purpose and meaning. My job is to help you look at your situation differently, and to develop a committed action plan to make the positive changes you have been wanting to. Like the Serenity Prayer says, we need to accept the things we cannot change, and have courage to change what we can, starting with ourselves."

Peer Relationships in 92612

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 92612

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.
