"I have a concentration of clients among college age students, and young adults. I specialize in eating disorders, and related issues. I also have a strong background in the performing arts, and see a significant number of creative clients. For twelve years I worked in a college counseling center. This has afforded me the opportunity to work with students who struggle with the concerns of people in their late teens, early twenties: depression; anxiety; ADD; OCD; substance abuse (as well as the more common issues surrounding living away from home, roommates, academic rigor, awaking sexual identity, etc.)"

"It seems like you have tried everything and nothing seems to work or isn't long lasting. Young adulthood can be difficult; their personalities change and you fear that they might not overcome their challenges. Not only do I work with teens, but also adults who are experiencing life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and family issues. It can be nerve-racking to reach out to a counselor because you want to ensure you find someone who you can truly connect with. "

"Personal growth and development are natural outcomes of resolving earlier emotional struggles and traumas. Resolving small and large traumas in life are central to my approach to psychotherapy. The traumatic experiences of childhood inescapably leave their mark on our adult lives. Just as there is a biological drive for the body to heal, so too is there an emotional imperative to heal the wounds garnered in living our lives. I understand that we all hold the keys to our own growth and development if we are effectively understood and nurtured."

"**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** If you're feeling off balance - challenged by life's transitions, significant loss, difficult emotions, feelings of confusion, or relationship problems - therapy can help. My view towards therapy is “there is more right with you, than wrong with you." This was said by Jon Kabat Zinn, an early champion of mindfulness in the U.S., and it points to our inherent strengths. I believe we all have the capacity to live with a sense of peace and calm within ourselves and with others. I also believe it’s hard to make changes alone. We can’t think our way out of problems but most of us spend a lot of time trying."

Peer Relationships in West Newton

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 West Newton

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 West Newton

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.
