"Therapy to help anxious kids feel calmer and sad kids feel brighter. Encouragement and support for overwhelmed parents too! You love your child, but lately, you don’t know what to do. Everything seems more difficult than it has to be. You don’t understand all the resistance. Even with fun stuff. When you talk to your child they can’t explain. You’re worried, frustrated, and don’t know what to do. It breaks your heart because you just want a confident and carefree kid. Trying to find help for your child can be scary. I get that. I’m a parent. Worries and sadness can be so difficult to put into words, but I can help. "

"My integrative work with clients draws upon psychology, shamanism, and energy medicine. I believe that we have manifested into our human bodies with a purpose. My goal in our work together is to help clear away anything that is not who you really are (your conditioning/programming). Often our conditioning is running the show in the background (subconscious) without our awareness and can cause us to do things like self-sabotage or repeat the same dysfunctional relationship patterns. In a deep and gentle way, I help clients begin to shed core woundings so that they can step into their wholeness."

"I don't have an ideal client. I want to met people where they are at. If you've never had therapy before, it’s important to be aware we don’t start talking about the hard stuff. It can take 2-3 sessions for someone to feel comfortable enough to tell another person what they are struggling with. Therapists cannot read minds, but have studied human patterns of thoughts, feelings & actions. No one can truly know the exact consequences a person has experienced in their life. Regardless of the reason why someone is seeking therapy, there is no judgment, no criticism…just acceptance. People can heal & grow in this type of environment. "

CBT provides specific strategies to address thoughts, physical feelings, and behaviors that feed into the debilitating cycle of anxiety. Therapy though is not necessarily about just changing thoughts and behaviors but rather about finding a way to accept and allow painful emotions on some level without letting them interfere with living a full and meaningful life."

Peer Relationships in San Marcos

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 Marcos

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 Marcos

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.
