"Our life experiences impact who we are and who we become. The positive experiences stay with us, but the negative experiences stay with us as well. The relationships we have had throughout our lives are also deeply influential in shaping who we are and our current relationships. Therapy can be helpful in giving each person a deeper understanding of who they are and how their relationships and experiences have impacted them. My approach to treatment is to look for the root cause of the discomfort or pain the individual or couple is experiencing in order to help create lasting change."

"Being present to ourselves and our lives, right now, is perhaps the most powerful force for change. As a counselor, I support individuals and couples in mindful awareness of their present circumstances and emotions while offering guidance towards growth. I believe that relational, psychological and spiritual growth happen when we are in the presence of people who gracefully hold our stories with us, and who gently direct us towards discovery. What is more nurturing than being welcome and accepted exactly as we are while being encouraged to grow?"

" I seem to respond to circumstances rather than create opportunities." "I know there is more to life than this!"

My style is respectful, interactive and dynamic. I've learned that there are a lot ways to help, to heal and to promote personal growth, and that no particular approach fits every person or situation.

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.
