Often the desire to start therapy begins when you realize that you are not in control of your feelings, goals, wishes, your own life. Those are the moments that you realize that maybe something needs to change. The change you seek may be specific around a certain event, or more diffuse, based on larger transformations, a desire for deeper insight or better self-awareness. Whatever it is, you do not have to deal with it alone and finding the right therapist is an important first step. As your therapist, I'll meet you with curiosity, warmth, and respect, creating a safe space where you can re-connect with your best self.

I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

I give them tools to attain more refined states of balance, personal engagement and vibrance in their lives. The process of therapy is immensely creative and personally unique, and in its' special moments asks that we step into leaps of faith of being with our present experience. The benefits are priceless. Depression, anxiety, not having a sense of self, destructive thinking, procrastination, poor relationship quality are all within our control to change.

I have worked closely with the perinatal community as a prenatal yoga instructor and a postpartum doula. I was also an educator prior to having my own children. I enjoy helping women and families move through major life transitions. As a woman transitions into motherhood, she has specific developmental hurdles such as learning to adapt to a new role and growing comfortable with a shift in her identity. Simultaneously, she is creating a bond with and relentlessly tending to the needs of her infant. Such change and energy consumption can lead to many difficult emotions that need to be processed and normalized for the new mother.

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.
