Building resiliency isn't always about overcoming the mountain sized obstacles. Sometimes, its about overcoming the desire to stay in bed all day, or have popcorn for dinner the fifth day in a row, or have just one more drink at the end of the day. Trauma, and its positive counter-part- Resiliency, is within each of us. Cultivating a positive support system and partnership is all about accessing the natural power you hold within yourself. Within each individual, and couple, embracing resiliency is possible. Learn more at www.resiliencyresourcesconsulting.com

We find ourselves traveling down the same roads all the time, same route to work, school, and even family and friends' houses. Sometimes we become so used to the way we are living that change is often difficult to achieve. I believe this is because we are stuck in ways of thinking because we have done it for as long as we can remember. "That's just the way I am." If you are looking to find a new way of doing things because you are unsatisfied or stuck in a rut, I would love to help you navigate change.

Life presents us with challenges and opportunities that sometimes require consultation. Often, change and healing are facilitated by assistance from caring others. I have repeatedly witnessed the resiliency of the human spirit. I am eager to meet with clients motivated for change and curious about the possibility of having more satisfying lives. I believe that psychotherapy requires trust and a working relationship. I am a compassionate listener and tailor my approach to best match the uniqueness of each client. I approach problems from a strengths-based, holistic perspective that considers a client's relevant biological, developmental, social, and cultural factors.

I believe people are relational-beings, meaning, we develop and live our lives in relationships with others. When these relationships become distressed, it can lead to a multitude of feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and an overall feeling of uneasiness. These are the times when a person may need some guidance and help accessing their personal resources to find more balance in those relationships and in life in general.

Your anxieties and worries are controlling too much of your life. That anxious inner voice won’t quiet down, and it’s just so convincing - you're frustrated that you listen to it, but you're scared not to. I mean, what if you ignore it and your worst fears come true? You know it’s irrational, but your anxiety just won’t let your brain believe the truth. You overthink so many things, and your inner dialog is exhausting you.

You love your child and are doing everything you can to help, but every day is a battle. Your kid is hurting and it’s hard to understand why. Why can’t they do any of the things you know would help? Even the simplest interactions end in fighting, crying or shutting down. You’re aching for your child AND you want to shake them. Parenting is hard at the best of times. Parenting an angry, anxious, depressed kid is even harder. Should you empathize? Should you push them? Punish? Your kid says you don’t understand and you’re just making it worse. You feel battered by your kid's big feelings and extreme behavior.

Peer Relationships in Grand Rapids

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 Grand Rapids

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 Grand Rapids

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.
