"People refer to therapy as a science or practice-but I have come to view it as an art in the most exquisite form. Therapy is about expressing and emoting, and finding value in the internal and external relationships we create. My education and clinical experience has verified the depth of this "art," revealing knowledge that can be gained, healing of old scars, and magic that can ensue when self-love occurs. I am a firm believer that therapy is not a requirement for healthy living, but similar to music and film, it can add intrigue, deepen relationships, and significantly enhance the quality of life."

"The way you look at yourself in the mirror, the way you feel in your own body, the sound of your own voice makes you cringe. The negative thoughts creep in, telling you that you are not loveable because you're “damaged goods.” You struggle to set limits and boundaries with friends, families and co-workers. You try to soothe yourself with distractions, toxic relationships, food or alcohol; or take your frustration out on those around you. At times it feels difficult to breathe. Despite the overwhelming self-doubting thoughts that consume your mind, you have been trying to push through, pretending things are under control."

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.
