I truly believe that anyone and everyone can benefit from therapy. It can help you process a variety of problems including anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, or relationship issues. Therapy can also help you become the best version of yourself whether or not any of these apply. I come from a cultural background that has brought me a good understanding of how family and where you come from can impact the rest of your life. I hope to bring this cultural sensitivity to the therapy space and to encourage others to prioritize their mental and emotional health as well.

Within each of us are a set of core values that we wish to be known for. However, when the values we profess do not line up with our actions our lives can become unmanageable and hard. Does it seem like everything stays the same even though the people and the scenery have changed? American culture pushes the belief that we must pull ourselves up by the bootstraps and push through but let’s face it there are times when this just isn’t possible and we need the help of someone who has gone through this before.

Peer Relationships in Tampa

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 Tampa

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 Tampa

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