Many people with eating disorders have a history of traumatic experiences, but I also believe that the eating disorder is a traumatic experience itself. When we treat eating disorders, we are treating trauma. People with eating disorders are often very accomplished because they are so hard-working and caring, but I always find myself wondering, what more could their life hold for them in recovery? How much more could they enjoy their accomplishments and their lives? In addition to my family/individual work with eating disorders, we offer an intensive outpatient program for trauma, promoting safety and support form trauma therapy.

One of the greatest privileges as a therapist is the ability to join with my clients during times when they feel alone, to help them to see a spark of light during times of darkness and to allow them to realize their strength during times of weakness. How we perceive our struggles and how we choose to move forward and face them can make all the difference. For nearly 10 years, I have been honored to support individuals, couples and families as they take the brave step of embarking on the path toward healing.

I believe that therapy can offer more than just relief from problems such as anxiety and depression - it can also serve as an opportunity to better understand your strengths and to unlock your full potential. Doing so often means reflecting on the things that give us a sense of meaning and purpose in life: our identities, relationships, values, and goals for the future. In my work with clients I strive to create a warm and open environment where we can work together to both overcome current obstacles and begin to chart a new path for the future.

It could be moving beyond an issue in a relationship, anxiety, perfectionism or it could be an eating disorder or traumatic memory. You may feel like you are underperforming in life and relationships or just completely overwhelmed with everything going on. When we do not have the social support we need or just not sure how to use our social support, it can be helpful to talk to a professional and get objective feedback.

Peer Relationships Therapists
Peer Relationships in Houston

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 Houston

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 Houston

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