Are you feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted at the end of the day? Like no one really gets you? Like even though you are in a room full of people, you are completely alone? That even though you ask for support, it is falling on deaf ears? Have you been labeled "too sensitive"? Are you having difficulty understanding why other people seem to be able to get all the things done that overwhelm you? Did you once have it "all together" and now things seem to be slowly slipping between your fingers? Do you have difficulty doing the water cooler talk? Do you seem to feel others pain and describe yourself as an empath?

I work with chronically traumatized people to resolve reactivity from bad events. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. This is challenging work for the clinician and client. Not all therapies work for everyone but evidenced based therapy has been researched and well documented in providing results. Using a licensed therapist helps. Using a licensed therapist who is certified in their specialty is better. That means you will read about many therapists who state they offer interventions for everything but have not completed supervised case work to earn certifications in the modalities they present.

You’re constantly overwhelmed with a million tasks on your to- do list. A list littered with everyone else’s priorities, and if your passions make the cut they are always tucked in neatly at the very bottom of the list. You tell your friends and family of your dreams with enthusiasm, but each day you wake to the same life you’ve had for years.

Peer Relationships in 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 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 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.

If you're looking for help with child peer relationships in Sarasota or for a Sarasota peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Sarasota and peer relationship advice.
