"When working with children and their families I strive to create a fun and comfortable environment while developing the tools to address the challenges being faced. I believe therapy should be a creative, practical and unique experience based on the strengths of the individual and family. Caregivers and family play an essential role in their child's life and development and are therefore often a regular part of the sessions. When working with children I utilize a variety of different strategies including play and game based interventions such as stories/books, board/card games, crafts, role-play, and sensory activities."

"During the national pandemic, the Governor has issued a "stay home, stay safe" order that allows me to continue to hold private online, video or phone sessions with clients on Doxy.me. After our initial intake over the phone, I will give you an email address that we can safely and securely meet up for an intake and future sessions. The appointment will be very similar to Facetime, Skype or Zoom however, we are using a medical line that is strictly protected and secure. The good news is the Federal Government approved insurance companies paying for online appointments so these will be covered by most insurance companies."

Living our lives on full display in the digital age can make it even more difficult to find true authenticity, peace and fulfillment. What we really need is the opportunity to pause and take a look at what we truly want for ourselves, and whether our energy and gifts are being used in pursuit of our purpose and passion. Counseling offers this opportunity for self-examination, along with the chance to expand coping skills, develop personal strengths, and solidify and repair relationships."

Peer Relationships in Kalamazoo

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 Kalamazoo

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 Kalamazoo

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 Kalamazoo or for a Kalamazoo peer relationship Therapist these professionals provide help understanding the peer relationships of kids or tweens, or teen peer relationship counseling in Kalamazoo and peer relationship advice.
