"Maybe you haven't said it out loud...but those feelings are still there. Those thoughts pop up..sneaking in to your daily routine. Sometimes you feel uneasy or anxious for no reason. Even when things are going well you still can't help but feel....off. Not yourself. You don't have to carry that stuff around anymore. It doesn't have to weigh you down and effect work, your relationships, your self-esteem. Change Happens Here. Take back control. Take back your life. Feel like YOU again."

"How can we consistently accomplish the goals we set for ourselves? These are questions I began asking myself in 1999. I was unhappy, stressed, and dissatisfied. I had a good job and love of family and friends, but I was still not happy and content with ME! I started asking myself how can I find true inner happiness & peace. That's when my personal journey of healing and growth started. Since, I have been able to work on my mindset, learn strategies, undo-behaviors, re-write my own narrative in order to start living a happier, productive and purposeful life."

"If you are struggling with addiction or substance abuse, I can help. I understand how painful addiction is, and more importantly, I know that sobriety and recovery are the best routes to a better life. Being present in your life, no matter the circumstances, is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to the people you love. Addiction is an insidious and lonely disease, but you can get and stay sober. You can live the life you envision. Recovery calls for commitment and it requires support. You can live free of addiction, and you can live in peace."

From the first interaction I hope to convey my deep respect for choosing to look at the parts of ourselves that are not working. Exploring what has you stuck can seem daunting and frustrating. My viewpoint of clients, is that they are strong, capable and willing to engage with themselves from a perspective of learning and growth.

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.
