"My deepest satisfaction is to serve the needs of my clients. For me, the most effective means of achieving this is to establish mutual trust and vulnerability. Each client is a very special individual, deserving of my recognition, utmost respect, and empathy. Through my active engagement, I draw out my client's personal strengths, as well as the issues which concern him or her. In return, I exchange relevant information about my own life and experience. I find that such sharing strengthens our therapeutic relationship."

"Thanks for taking a look at my profile. Originally in practice on the East Coast, I've spent the last decade helping adults, adolescents, and couples overcome difficulties and live more fulfilling lives. Since my days in graduate school, I've maintained a strong interest in understanding how psychotherapy can promote deep and lasting change in a time-efficient way. I approach psychotherapy from the belief that all human beings have the potential for healing and self-righting, and the way that we tap into that potential begins with building a secure and collaborative therapeutic relationship."

"Beginning therapy is similar to finally summoning the courage to open wide the door of that overwhelmingly packed closet in your home. While this task can seem daunting at first, the company of a non-judgmental guide can make the undertaking manageable and even rewarding. As this guide, I will support you in taking inventory of what you've kept hidden away for years, possibly due to shame, fear, anxiety, grief or the uncertainty of how to move past old habits. You will develop resilience through listening to your inner wisdom, resourcing self support and expanding your capacity for joy."

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.
