A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

Change is possible. My style is warm, engaging, and pragmatic. I ask a lot of questions and help you to find your own answers. I work with individuals who are struggling with panic, anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, loss, family and marital relationships. When emotions have taken over, it is crucial to have someone provide an objective perspective. I help you identify the beliefs and behaviors that may be getting in your way. Many times these are distorted, outdated beliefs or simply our bodies natural response to ongoing relational/environmental stressors.

We all struggle at times. Although we try our best to manage, sometimes our struggles are more than we can handle. It is at these times that we most need someone to be there for us; someone who can be genuine, non-judgmental, and supportive; someone who will listen and accept us. It is at these times that we often find it hardest to ask for help, yet need it the most. I have been helping people during these difficult times for the past five years.

I work with adults and families to help people better understand the things that are getting in the way of living a full, productive, and satisfying life. That could be a child’s struggle with emotional regulation, a parent’s difficulty setting limits or understanding their child’s behavior, an adult who struggles to develop and sustain intimate relationships, or a teenager who feels overwhelmed by all that is on their plate.

Peer Relationships in 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 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 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.

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