"Therapy guided by compassion and science can unlock and develop internal and community based resources and skills to navigate life’s challenges. Life presents with unpredictable stressors and seemingly intolerable pain at times. While uncomfortable feelings may emerge during the course of treatment, I utilize creative approaches with children that allow us to explore serious problems in a playful and non-threatening way. Similarly, in working with adults, I employ a humorous and empathic style to encourage transparency and promote wanted change. I feel equally comfortable working with children and adults across the lifespan. "

"I was a middle school teacher for ten years. I enjoyed working with children and adolescents more than I did grading papers. I became a psychologist to help children and their families live healthier, more productive lives. I approach psychotherapy first from the perspective that insight into oneself provides then the power to choose and to change. If you don't understand what is going on, you are unlikely to make changes. Secondly, the power to change is enhanced by learning and applying better coping skills. Insight and tools provide a growth experience."

Peer Relationships in Glendale

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 Glendale

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 Glendale

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