"We are all the products of our earliest emotional conditioning. Children are a product of your marriage. A majority of us do not come from ideal upbringings due to the complexities of parenting. As a result, we all experience, and become accustomed to, varying levels of irritation and develop a "pushing away" defense to real intimacy. Because of this common dynamic, many people become creatures of maladaptive habits and develop destructive habits, ego deficits, and severe intimacy issues. If this sounds familiar to you, please consider calling me."

"At times, emotions and behaviors can feel out of control, interfering with our ability to be fully present in our lives and leaving us consumed with worry and frustration. The type of therapy I practice teaches my clients specific skills to gain more control over their minds, decrease vulnerability to emotions and be less reactive to their environment. This approach creates reliance on skills, not the therapist, allowing my clients to deal with life's obstacles on their own."

Peer Relationships in West Islip

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 West Islip

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.

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.
