The decision to unite with someone for the rest of your life is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life. With this decision you formally and sincerely promise to have and to hold this person, from the day you decide to wed, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death do you part (according to God's Holy Ordinance. The vow is beautiful and perfect in the eyes of God however carrying out these promises are not always easy. And if I'm being honest, we can find ourselves not knowing what the hell we are doing to maintain our once happy union.

My main way of helping people is through EMDR therapy. What EMDR therapy does is help your brain do what it is supposed to do -- heal itself. At times, the brain is unable to heal due to how some memories are stored in the body. Sometimes memories are stored in the exact same way they where felt. This could explain why some war veterans feel in danger when hearing fireworks on the 4th of July. What is happening is that their bodies are reacting to unprocessed memories of war, which are felt in the exact same way they were experienced. This is what is called an automatic response.

Life is a series of challenges. Many people wrestle with emotional clarity or the resolution of past experiences or circumstances. Most couples experience communication breakdowns or breaches in trust at some time. Old coping skills often become inadequate as time goes on and life's challenges change. For many, a collaboration with a therapist can provide a safe space to explore areas of conflict with oneself and others. Finding a good therapist is a matter of finding someone who listens, empathizes, is responsive, and can empower clients with hope and bravery to do the difficult work involved in change.

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.
