Let's be honest, life can be tough. There are times when we find ourselves feeling lost, overwhelmed, and unheard. We experience a range of emotions and face situations that can be difficult to manage alone. Counseling is a helpful tool to gain clarity and direction when things seem too foggy to navigate on our own. As a counselor, it is my goal to provide my clients with a solid counseling relationship built on trust, empathy, and unconditional positive regard. Through this process, I strive be a partner in helping clients to discover and build upon the strengths and potential they already have within themselves.

I am an individual, couple, and family therapist with more than 30 years experience helping people find solutions to problems in living. I teach people how to be effective therapists at a local university graduate program as well as conducting workshops around the world and publishing extensively on how to help therapists be effective in helping people improve their marital, family, and business relationships. My private practice is intentionally small and individualized - My personal ethics are such that first interviews are designed for the client to have an opportunity to meet with me and decide if they think I can help them, and equally important, for me to decide if I think I can be of help. If I cannot help I will fire myself and recommend an appropriate referral. I do not accept insurance.

Peer Relationships in Monroe

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 Monroe

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.
