**NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** There are many reasons why you may be seeking out a therapist today. Perhaps someone is "nudging" you to get help. Maybe things are so that the discomfort of the pain you feel now is outweighing the discomfort of the idea of seeing a therapist. Or you'd like some unbiased support in moving more quickly to a life you'd like. Whatever is bringing you to this place is exactly what is supposed to happen at this moment. I'd like to find out if you and I are a good fit to make the changes you're looking for!

I understand that you may need a place where you can just be real, be yourself, and not feel judged when you are trying to navigate life's challenges. I have clients with issues ranging from the day-to-day problems all the way to traumatic experiences. I recognize that trauma does not have to be from one incident and can come from a lifetime of self-talk that reinforces an old message or belief. Not everyone has a place where they can feel safe and many of my clients would say they have been very comfortable with me. Counseling works best when we realize how instrumental the therapist/client relationship can be in healing.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is a powerful agent of change, and aim to provide a warm, safe, and casual space for clients to express themselves. I also encourage creative outlets for processing emotional issues, which might include drawing, painting or any other evidenced based expressive techniques that relieve distress.

Peer Relationships in Louisville

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 Louisville

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 Louisville

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