When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes. I excel at supporting and guiding my clients along their path. Many indicate they feel refreshed, transformed and nourished. Feel free to call. I'd love to tell you more.

Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate.

I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.

Dating isn't easy. Understatement of the year, right? Loneliness is awful, and unfortunately dating is sometimes worse. Online dating can easily turn into a full-time job with few benefits, and many find meeting people in person painfully awkward if not downright impossible. The good news -- you're not alone. At Bay Area Dating Coach, we believe that dating is a learnable skill. And we've helped hundreds of singles find love. Heart-thumping, stomach-butterflying, whole-body-warming Love.

Do you feel stuck no matter how hard you try to move ahead? You're certainly not alone. It can be tough making change, especially while sheltering-in-place. Over the past decade, I've come to learn again and again that there's a legitimate reason why we don't move forward to fulfillment. Instead we cycle in discomfort, anxiety, sadness, fear, mistrust, etc. Once you really understand what is causing the discomfort (or that feeling of being stuck), lasting change can occur. This process is unique for each person. I'd love to help you.

I work with people seeking therapy to address stagnation, frustration or dissatisfaction. Whether feeling stuck or overwhelmed, usually we're in pursuit of something. When stuck: our striving is often a reiteration. We might be relying on our learned, now-automatic ways - to express ourselves, be close to others, weigh a decision, or assert what we want. But sometimes, preserving our familiar underlying attitude or belief while attempting action or change can create discord, confusion, stuck-ness. When overwhelmed: our pursuit holds such urgency, we need help to slow down, ease the pressure, adjust more gradually.

Sometimes life presents challenges that are too difficult to manage on one's own and therapy can be an excellent choice to address those obstacles. Therapy provides a conversation that is not available in any other relationship. I invite people to explore and clarify what they want and together we identify the barriers and create attainable goals. We will work together to understand what really matters to you. My treatment style is warm, direct, humorous and deeply respectful While each individual client requires something unique to them, in general, I offer practical solutions while also using an insight-orientated approach.

Peer Relationships in San Francisco

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 San Francisco

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 San Francisco

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 San Francisco or for a San Francisco peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in San Francisco and peer relationship advice.
