"I've been able to have a highly successful relationship with youth and young adults that thoughtfully resolves issues they feel are causing angst in life. For many, this includes life adjustments, substance use, mood related issues, self-harm, and trauma. I also support a large percent of young women working to have positive body image and esteem. I work as a collaborative partner to youth and their support system in identifying personal goals and practical tools to obtain them. Youth exit with a broader understanding of self and increased skills to sustain progress and overall happiness."

"Would you like to experience life differently than you do now? Have you felt stuck in your current emotions or beliefs about yourself? Perhaps you have suffered stressful or overwhelming experiences that are impacting you today. Maybe you've even dealt with significant trauma. Often, these occurrences leave their mark in how we view the world around us and how we feel about who we are. Emotions like fear, pain, depression, and anxiety can become mainstays in our day to day life. It doesn't have to be that way. "

There are truly many paths to achieving significant relief from symptoms of loss, depression, and anxiety or a change in one's personal situation. I view the therapeutic journey as Herodotus understood the original meaning of the word history (historous): not as a noun (i.e. a fixed thing) but a verb: literally to go and find out for one's self."

Peer Relationships in 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 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.

Negative Peer Pressure in Portland

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