"Do you often feel overwhelmed or confused by your reactions and emotions? Life can be so busy and everyone seems to need you – sometimes all at once. You have many roles and responsibilities, which makes it easy to lose yourself and more difficult to pursue personal interests and self-care. It takes courage to establish healthy boundaries and embrace your authentic self. Let’s talk. I want to hear your story. Let me help you re-write your story by prioritizing and assisting in the process of figuring out what’s working and what isn’t….and most importantly – what you want and how you can get it. "

Peer Relationships in Near West Side, Chicago

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 Near West Side, Chicago

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 Near West Side, Chicago

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.
