"I assist couples and adults with relationship difficulties, parenting, personal and professional life transitions, stress reduction, anxiety/depression, and grief. I use a combination of Mindfulness and Relational therapies because they support my belief that satisfying relationships within our self and with those we love provides the basis for a meaningful life. When our sense of connectedness to others is absent or threatened, life can feel very unsatisfactory. The effectiveness of Mindfulness based therapy is also supported by a large and growing body of scientific evidence."

Peer Relationships in Northwest, Portland

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 Northwest, Portland

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.
