Often times people come to therapy due to feeling excessive stress at work, at home, or in their relationships. They find the pressures of every day life have exceeded their abilities, overwhelmed their senses, and left them with an inability to cope. They are often having problems going to school, completing tasks, getting along with others at work, and finding activities enjoyable resulting in low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, or other symptoms. Families often report not being able to get along or feeling overwhelmed with parenting a child that is having behavioral problems. They know they need to make a change.

Many experience barriers to wellness due to anxiety, depression, grief, conflict, or circumstances outside their control. No matter the presenting concern, resiliency is key. Do you require objective feedback for growth? Is there a pattern of suffering in your significant relationships? Are your sensitivities overwhelming your ability to function and adapt? Perhaps discomfort is serving as insight for you to seek support. Therapeutic fit is a leading factor in predicting client improvement.

Life can be tough sometimes. Let me be the person you can trust, the one who is going to listen to you without judgement. People are by nature relational. It is natural to feel like you need to express yourself and be vulnerable when life may not be exactly what you thought or hoped it would be. Talking to someone who is non judgmental and whose sole purpose is to come alongside you to help you navigate through your struggles is where I come in.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in certain patterns and don’t fully understand why. We talk to our friends about things, but the advice—while well-intentioned—lands awkwardly, and can leave you feeling even more confused about decisions. Add to this the day to day challenges of constantly being invalidated and told that your experiences are not real, or that you are overreacting, and you start to get a better understanding of how stress can lead to not only mental health issues, but physical health complications. Therapy is a good way to gain a better understanding of how you handle stress and learn healthier ways to cope.

Peer Relationships Therapists
Peer Relationships in Wilmington

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 Wilmington

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 Wilmington

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