I think we all know life can be a bit messy and confusing at times. We have moments where we feel stuck, blocked, or just fatigued and burnt out! Stuck in the loop of the same disastrous relationships, blocked from life with the "disease to please" everyone, and burnt-out from unnecessary guilt. If this feels familiar, I get it, and I can help.

Creating a successful family is the greatest challenge any of us face. So often when our kids enter the teenage years, the dynamics suddenly change. The son or daughter who used to be a part of the family can seem like a different person. The old activities, conversations and rules are different and then journey of raising a teenage begins. As a therapist, high school teacher, and group leader, I have watched adolescents, their parents, and couples go through times of great struggle and come out the other side with a clearer sense of who they are in the world .

In my years of practice I have felt that something was needed that could not be touched despite excellent talk therapy: the answer is combine it with Neurofeedback. It is a brain exercise system that helps you change by creating a more functional and stable brain state, reducing anxiety and depression, PTSD, migraines, artistic blocks, and ADHD. It enhances focus, clarity, memory, and improves relationships. I work with the entertainment industry, schools, trauma survivors, and I teach psychology and creative process at Antioch University. My doctorate is from USC and I am a Marriage Family Therapist practicing in Santa Monica.

I believe change, growth, and healing are possible when we better understand ourselves and the patterns in our lives. Especially with the state of the world right now, it would make sense if your goals were to feel less anxious, less stressed, more secure, more connected, and/or safer. Through our collaborative exploration, curiosity, and empathy, I believe we can find opportunities for healing, challenge old patterns that no longer serve you, and develop a greater sense of control over your life.

Peer Relationships Therapists
Peer Relationships in Santa Monica

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 Santa Monica

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 Santa Monica

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