Our emotional well-being is integral to our physical health. Individual or family therapy can enhance our ability to manage life's stressors, such as sudden or chronic illness, family conflicts, financial strain, or interpersonal problems, which can lead to anxiety, depression and physical maladies. Therapy is beneficial to people who struggle with a mental illness, such as clinical depression or bipolar disorder. Enhancing insight into our problems, along with the development of healthy coping skills is empowering, and can often mean the difference between facing each day with confidence or avoidance of living the best life possible.

Peer Relationships in Toms River

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 Toms River

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 Toms River

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.
