"Our therapeutic approach at Strategic Solutions utilizes a brief, problem solving model that focuses on understanding and treating problems within their intimate context. The goal of therapy is to resolve the presenting problem while fostering supportive, functional relationships. Family problems are embedded in relationship patterns, which can become unproductive and perpetuate, rather than solve problems. Our approach is strength-based and outcome oriented. The focus of therapy is understanding the client's goals for change and then working together to solve those problems directly."

"Welcome to my psychotherapy practice and I hope to assist you in having the life you want to live. I am a genuine, compassionate therapist with an empathetic heart. I believe for therapy to truly work, there has to be an equal relationship between the therapist and the client. The equal relationship means that there is collaboration, mutual respect and mutual decision making...not the therapist telling you what you should do. I have many success stories and one you can read about in my published book, Healing Trauma from the Inside Out. Chapter 6 was written by a former client. Thank you for reading and I wish you blessings! "

Peer Relationships in Westport

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 Westport

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 Westport

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 Westport or for a Westport peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Westport and peer relationship advice.
