**Unfortunately, I am currently unable to take on new clients, due to a full caseload. Thanks for understanding.** I believe that all people are wired for connection. We want to be at peace with ourselves, and we want to feel secure in our relationships. However, life experiences, and how we make sense of them, often get in our way. My work as a counselor is to help clients of all ages see themselves and their world more clearly, by cutting through the negative messaging and reconnecting with their wise self. This is done with an attitude of compassionate, even playful, curiosity, recognizing we are all figuring it out as we go.

My approach is collaborative, ie, we figure out together what's going on and how best to work towards better outcomes. My patients are children, adolescents and their families, couples and adults - young and old. I have a good deal of experience with acting-out behaviors, parenting challenges, depression, anxiety, trauma-based behaviors. While some difficulties can be more skillfully dealt with, I am skeptical that life's problems can be 'resolved' forever and ever. Emotions and thoughts will forever arise, offering endless opportunities to learn different responses, ultimately transforming habitual reactions into conscious responses that work better for us.

Having been in practice 30 years I offer you a plethora of skills,tools, training and experience. Regardless of presenting issues most people seek counsel because something is not working and feels painful. This pain comes from resisting the call to make changes, literally blocking your aliveness/energy making you feel unhappy and "stuck". My role is to offer ways to release this resistance at all levels: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I tailor sessions to meet your individual needs.

Peer Relationships in Bend

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 Bend

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 Bend

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.
