I’ve known pain. I know how it feels to stay stuck in it, and I know how amazing and life changing it feels to find a way out. I believe that this process is what builds beautiful, strong resilient people. I want to help people on that path. I believe that involves processing past pain, and then using spirituality, nature, movement, art, music and human connections to pursue the values and passions you discovered on your journey. I also enjoy helping couples and families learn skills that enable them to connect, understand each other and work together.

There are many things in life that can make us feel powerless and believe that we are not good enough. However, you don’t have to go through it alone. It shows a great deal of strength to be able to reach out for support in times of need. I believe that through changing our core beliefs, learning effective coping skills, and utilizing the strengths you already have, you can have the life you want. I provide a compassionate and non-judgmental approach to therapy that is tailored to each individual client.

Peer Relationships in Huntington Beach

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 Huntington Beach

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 Huntington Beach

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.
