Is this you? All we do is fight! It seems like we never hear each other and neither of us listens anymore! It is so frustrating I do not want to come home and try. I have been successfully helping couples to develop the tools necessary to communicate effectively for more than 20 years. Having disagreements is not unusual. Learning how to resolve disagreements is a key element to healthy relationships. Conflict resolution is about learning to fight fairly by listening in an atmosphere of Respect, Trust, Safety and love and not placing my desire to be right over the relationship. $150 per 50-minute session. Discounted rates apt.11-4

I have a fascination with those that overcome their odds and have a unique perspective on their situation. Being too optimistic or pessimistic may yield unrealistic results. Having a practical approach is ideal towards therapy. But, the end goal is the same, to come out better than when we came in.

You might be the person others rely on for support; how burdensome that can be when no one is supporting you! You may be dealing with a transition that leaves you out-of-sorts, or maybe you're the misfit who never felt they fit in. Maybe you are questioning your gender or sexuality; maybe you've slipped into a depressive or anxious rut and are trying to reclaim your power in your life. You may be a creative or an activist, bringing your visions into the world and feeling stymied by small minds.

I have recently sold Shoreline and am going back to my roots and passion for providing direct clinical care via teletherapy. I provide clinical supervision to early-career eating disorder therapists and stay focused on new interventions. That being said, nothing takes the place of curiosity and compassion over judgment.

My main focus is eating disorders, however, I also offer ecotherapy and general therapy life's challenges.

Everyone has the potential for greatness. It's a matter of how we learn to use life's experiences, challenges and triumphs to actualize the best of who we are. In exploring our history, communication habits, relationship and behavioral patterns, we earn more power in using this for good in our lives. Between balancing responsibilities, prioritizing relationships and simply getting out of the door every morning, it is easy to forget to make time for our own well being.

Peer Relationships in Long 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 Long 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 Long 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.
