"Many people, like those I usually work with, feel that, because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. They want to be free of the effects of those experiences. Each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods. These newer methods require out of session practice and record-keeping, so that we might better understand the events that cause difficulties and develop new ways to respond. The therapist is your guide, mentor, coach, and knowledgeable ally."

"The decision to start psychotherapy is significant as it often means that you are suffering in some way or you've realized that what you've been doing is no longer working, and you are seeking change in your life. My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body. I believe change occurs through the expression of emotions, addressing how the past impacts your current experiences, and exploring interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the patient and therapist."

Peer Relationships in Oakland

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 Oakland

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 Oakland

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 Oakland or for an Oakland peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Oakland and peer relationship advice. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in Oakland and peer relationship counselors.
