"First of all, I want to congratulate you on making the decision to start therapy. Unlike what some people believe, that going to therapy implies that you are “weak”, the exact opposite is true. Making the decision to actively look at your life and face and overcome the challenges you are facing takes courage and strength! I specialize in working with high-functioning, young adults/adults, and it is a true pleasure to see more and more people who embrace the idea that therapy is a healthy, proactive way to learn to listen to their heart and take steps to make changes and create lives that they will truly enjoy."

You feel competent and secure in many areas of your life but your relationships just never seem to work out and you find that you constantly compare yourself to others. You’ve developed a dialogue in your head that you’re not good enough and that things are destined to be this way forever. But not anymore, a change is long overdue. "

"Choosing to begin psychotherapy opens yourself to the experience of self-discovery, reflection, and growth. This decision may feel exhilarating or scary, as self-work often requires courage and a willingness to examine aspects of life which may have gone unattended for some time. But truly, beginning psychotherapy reflects an inner desire and commitment to enhance the parts of yourself and your life which are working well, and to explore, and ultimately make changes in the parts you would like to be different."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

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. They include peer relationship Therapists, peer relationship psychologists in San Francisco and peer relationship counselors.
