"There is no "one size fits all" approach when it comes to therapy. There is profound potential for healing through the relationship between therapist and client. I aim to strike a balance between a direct and challenging therapeutic space with warmth and compassion. I provide space for clients to explore and "connect the dots" openly and free of judgment leading to lasting change, awareness, and integration of all parts of Self. With consciousness comes choice. Let's be curious together. "

"It is not always easy separating our personal lives from our professional lives when the boundaries we try to maintain in order to excel in both spheres often bleed into each other. You want to bring the best of yourself to all facets of your life, but when issues such as substance abuse, depression, marital strife, family problems, & conflicts with co-workers are so prevalent, how do we cope? What do we do with our mental and emotional baggage? How do we remain balanced and calm when the world we live in demands so much of us? "

"Being human isn't always easy, and when life gets complicated and becomes challenging, therapy can help offer tools to navigate through a crisis while providing you a deeper exploration of yourself. Problems in relationships often come from old ways of coping that served you in the past, but now may be keeping you from feeling fulfilled and satisfied with your life. I believe our most challenging times can also be our greatest opportunity for change. Healing is possible, and therapy is a journey towards self-discovery where you get to explore the landscape of your own mind."

"I specialize in treating panic attacks and other anxiety related issues including social anxiety, generalized anxiety, OCD, and phobias. I have found that a mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach is the best way to manage these issues. CBT states that our unhelpful thoughts lead to our emotional distress and unproductive behaviors. Mindfulness is a state of open and nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment. By cultivating mindfulness, we are able to become aware of our unhelpful and unproductive thoughts as they happen and apply the tools used in CBT to dispute and replace them with helpful, productive thoughts."

Peer Relationships in Los Angeles

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 Los Angeles

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 Los Angeles

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.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Los Angeles or for a Los Angeles peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Los Angeles and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in Los Angeles and peer relationship counselors.
