"It is my belief that people find their problems to be oppressive and desire relief from them. I work from a systemic perspective and believe that symptoms are sustained through habits, cycles, and through the meaning one makes of one's life. I work collaboratively and utilize my client's world view, strengths and resources. My frame of reference in understanding my clients is from the Narrative Therapy perspective and as appropriate I utilize cognitive behavioral interventions, mindfulness practices, and sometimes EMDR to help my clients achieve the change they desire. If your insurance allows, we can do therapy via audio/video."

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.
