Licensed Professional Counselor in Midlothian, TX
I enjoy working with teens and pre-teens who are struggling with identity development, self-esteem and the increasing pressure being put on children today. Growing up in a world where tech is everywhere, and information is at our finger tips, can be beneficial in many ways however it also increasing children's exposure to negavtive and harmful content. Teaching children and teens how to interact with the world around them is crucial to positive development.
Previously working with a non-profit eating disorder treatment, I learned the importance of prevention to reduce the need for intervention. Although body image issues are very common, those issues are typically rooted in emotions or situations that feel too difficult to face. Learning to identify painful emotions and work through them instead of pushing them aside can reduce the risk of developing more significant disordered eating beahviors later in life.
