I believe that therapy is most effective when provided in an authentic and nonjudgmental setting between two equals. Through my practice I have found that many issues can be alleviated or improved by making behavioral changes and sessions tend toward these present-oriented approaches, such as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (helping to regulate out-of-control emotions), and Neurofeedback (also called EEG Biofeedback, this form of brain training is helpful for many issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, attention problems).

Seeking professional psychological help can be a complicated undertaking. Some people seek help when in the throes of a crisis, others after a long time trying to fix something that is not right in their life. Family conflict, life transitions, relationship problems, anxieties and depression are some of the reasons people contact me for help. When people seek my assistance I try to understand all the factors (personal, family, work) that are impacting their life. This includes present circumstances and historical influences. In an evaluation I work with people to develop the best plan of treatment for their current situation.

Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

Congratulations on taking this important step toward improving your life. I believe that in order to grow and make changes in their life, people need validation, support & practical skills. I strive to provide empathic, supportive & productive therapeutic relationships so you can feel safe while moving toward your goals. Each person's situation is unique and my therapy approach is designed to meet your individual needs. Many of my clients suffer from problems of emotional regulation (borderline personality, PTSD, depression, anxiety & bipolar) most effectively addressed by dialectical behavior therapy. However, no matter the approach, it is the healing energy created when two people sit together and mindfully focus on connection and healing that leads to healing and growth.

Peer Relationships in Rockville

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 Rockville

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 Rockville

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