Have you ever felt alone, stuck, or overwhelmed trying to figure out who you are? Do you feel trapped in a struggle with food and your appearance? Have you tried to break free only to find yourself back in a battle with your own thoughts? Maybe it is hard to even imagine being free when your self-worth is so closely tied to your body image and when your relationship with food feels so out of control. This way of living is exhausting and can cause destruction in many areas of life. What if freedom from that life was possible? As a therapist specializing in eating disorders, I believe it is possible to find relief from your struggle.

Peer Relationships in Newport 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 Newport 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 Newport 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.
