My true passion is working with children and adolescents. I have found that by being honest and compassionate, even the most resistant teen tends to open up. Most people have a hard time trusting a stranger, kids and teens are no exception. I work to build that trust and provide an environment for people to feel safe enough to open up. I also enjoy working with adults and couples, and have discovered that they appreciate this approach as well.

Many of us grew up in environments that did not support the healthy development of our identity, ability to connect well with others, stand up for our own viewpoints and preferences, problem solve, manage personal responsibilities, set goals, and resolve relational conflicts. Our coping skills to address the pain, loss, stress, and despair are not working or non-existent. We sometimes wonder if our lives could be different, happier, more purposeful, positive, and gratifying. The answer is YES!

Peer Relationships in Livermore

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 Livermore

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 Livermore

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.
