I have my doctorate in clinical psychology and am a licensed psychologist who specializes in treatments proven to increase children's positive feelings and ability to cope. I work with children ages 6-17 and have been providing therapy for the past 12 years. Some areas of treatment interest are anxiety, phobias, trauma, and adjustment issues (such as grief, divorce, food allergies). I have a certified therapy dog named Willow. If clients do not want Willow in session, then she is not a part of therapy. Willow is an mini Aussiedoodle, which means she has minimal shedding and is more allergy-friendly.

**Currently Accepting New Clients** Mental health is important now more than ever as increased solitude and stress can only heighten symptoms that are already plaguing individuals, couples, and families. It is increasingly important to take the steps necessary to maintain that health through seeking a trusting and empathetic source of support and connection.

Lets face it, deciding that we need help is not an easy thing to admit. It's even more difficult to reach out to get the help we know we deserve. No matter what you are dealing with in life, may it be daily anxiety and depression or transitioning through a phase in your life that turned out to be more difficult than you thought. I am here to listen and help you through these times. I hope that with my help you can live your life the way you have always wanted and feel proud for the work you have done to truly take care of yourself.

No one should move through life, silently experiencing emotional distress with little to no sense of hope, yet so many individuals do. Whether it be a result of biology and/or experience, a person’s thoughts and emotions can greatly shape their reality- leaving them to struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel. By reconnecting with their values and seeing one's purpose in life, a person can begin to break free from the hold that uncomfortable thoughts and emotions can have on them. While involvement in therapy entails a great deal of vulnerability, it can also be an important step toward desired growth.

Peer Relationships in Cedar Rapids

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 Cedar Rapids

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 Cedar Rapids

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