"You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom."

"I like to think of therapy as the search for balance in one's life. For many, it begins with seeking greater understanding about one's concerns and situation. With that understanding, a new narrative of life's experiences and meaning can be found. The understanding is the first part of change; the rest (which may sometimes be the longer part) is a process of working with self-compassion towards that balance. Although my undergraduate education was in Creative Writing and Fine Arts at the University of Michigan, the most creative process I've encountered has been psychotherapy."

"People often search for a therapist when they feel like they've tried everything and it's just not working well enough. It can be hard to see a situation clearly when you've been immersed in it for so long. I help people to take a step back, so they can see things more objectively. Through psychotherapy, people can find internal strength and resources they didn't know were there. They can then start to see new perspectives, both of themselves and their situations, and can begin to make changes."

"I am not currently able to accept new clients. In therapy, we zoom in and out across multiple layers, sometimes viewing problems through the lens of history and culture. Therapy might examine how relationships and larger systems maintain or reinforce unwanted symptoms and negative views of the self. It may not be your sole responsibility to heal familial or societal wounds--however, changing individual behavior patterns can positively affect the system as a whole. I work well with clients who are socially conscious and critical, who seek to align their behaviors with their values."

Peer Relationships in Evanston

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 Evanston

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 Evanston

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