"For many of us, myself included, counseling often becomes a process that refuses to come full circle. We are seeking help, but that help seems to elude us and we struggle finding the right fit or the right method that might provide the direction we need. I was inspired to pursue counseling as a career by my desperate need for help along my life path, and my desire to provide that guidance and compassion to others, in a clear and consistent way. I have several therapy/support animals available for my clients, please ask me about using dogs/pigs/rabbits for help with anxiety and difficulty opening up in the therapy room. "

"Healthy relationships energize and add zest to your life; stressful relationships drain energy and cause unhappiness. Relationship counseling can provide you with a safe place and time to explore underlying feelings and gain a new clarity and perspective on your relationships and on your life. When couples communicate more compassionately, they can restore harmony and mutual respect in their relationship and improve their emotional connection and sense of intimacy.The focus of my practice is helping clients improve communication by recognizing their own reactive 'triggers and learning techniques to manage emotinal reactivity."

"You love being active in Austin social events, but a common thread in many of these engaging activities is that they center around drinking alcohol. You don't drink but maybe your friends do so you find yourself either going to events and feeling uncomfortable or pressured/guilted into drinking. Maybe you don't go out at all and have begun to feel more isolated and depressed because you miss spending time with your friends. This is not a feeling found only within social circles but also when family celebrations include alcohol."

Peer Relationships in Austin

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 Austin

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 Austin

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