I believe that we come into this world whole and remain whole as we travel through our lives. Collectively and individually, however, we suffer trauma as the result of the human condition. We develop brilliant coping mechanisms for survival that, over time, become a hindrance to our continued evolution. I use a holistic treatment approach, that addresses the whole person (mind, body, soul and emotions). I view my work with clients through the lens of social justice. I am especially sensitive to how various societal oppression becomes internalized and impact our mental health and identity.

Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

Sometimes our inner critic can be relentless by telling us we aren’t good enough, strong enough, smart enough, skinny enough, outgoing enough, attractive enough, or likeable enough to do something. That voice can become so common that we don’t even question the validity of it anymore. It eventually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because at some point we begin viewing the world through that lens of never being able to measure up. We then begin to seek out information that agrees with our inner critic. We can also misread others’ comments, gestures or facial expressions so that it aligns with our own doubts about ourselves.

You look at your adolescent and wonder what happened to your sweet, happy kid? Your parent intuition tells you something is not right. There are so many changes, too fast. Adolescence is a stage of life that brings with it a lot of change, physically, socially, and emotionally. Whether your child is entering adolescence, in the middle of adolescence or at the end of adolescence, each stage brings its challenges. Not addressing issues presented with your teen can lead to risky behaviors. Most parents brace themselves and suffer through it, as does their teen but it doesn't have to be this way!

Peer Relationships in Downtown, Sarasota

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 Downtown, Sarasota

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 Downtown, Sarasota

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.
