While working with children and adolescents, I often focus on increasing knowledge and use of coping skills, increasing the ability to sit with uncomfortable emotions, improving family and peer relationships, and enhancing overall emotional and social development.
I provide psychotherapy services for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families experiencing a wide variety of issues and diagnoses including: depression, anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, self-harm, suicidal ideation, anger management, behavioral challenges, trauma, adjustment disorders, as well as parenting and relational issues. While working with couples, I strive to foster a non-judgmental and inviting atmosphere for couples to heal emotional wounds, use more effective communication skills, and successfully tackle inevitable stressors that arise.

Are you concerned that your child is worrying too much or their sadness is overwhelming them? It is painful to see your child nervous, isolated, unhappy, and alone. You may be worried that your teen is hurting but they will not open up to you. You know your teen should be active and engaged in a social life but they spend most of their time at home or on their electronic devices. Maybe your home life has become stressful and consumed with conflict and stress. You are sure that therapy is a good idea but you have no idea on how to convince them to try it out.

Peer Relationships Therapists
Peer Relationships in Fairfax

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 Fairfax

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 Fairfax

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