"All families experience transitions, and even positive change can cause stress. I employ an eclectic approach with a strong emphasis on attachment, structural, and solution-focused family therapies. I work with young children and their caregivers to form secure attachments early on. This leads to more effective communication and problem solving patterns and a higher level of resilience down the road. My work tends to be short term and builds on the existing strengths of your family. My work with couples is attachment informed as we look at past and current relationships to elucidate our most fulfilling ways of connecting."

"I work most often with people struggling with the course of their life: its direction, its quality, or their traveling companions. People come to therapy when the problems of living have become too painful, scattered, depressing, frightening, or paralyzing to bear. For others, reaching an emotional breaking point isn't part of deciding to seek therapy: instead, they're frustrated at not having "figured out" how to build a rich life that includes satisfying relationships, work that doesn't demean them, and a range of human experiences."

"Are you struggling to balance the changing expectations of being a man? Finding that your behavior doesn’t match your intentions? Do demands for emotional intimacy leave you feeling confused and misunderstood? Has work become a place of negativity and resentment? Men have unique needs and face many confusing messages about how to deal with problems. We’re good at pretending that there’s nothing wrong until we just can’t take it anymore. Even as young adults transitioning out of college, young men are entering into a confusing landscape. What if you could step into being more confident and successful at work and in relationships?"

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.
