Do you overthink? Do you encounter the same experience in your head repetitively, as if the cycle will benefit you in some way? Are you a people-pleaser and are scared of disappointing others? Perhaps you are so hard on yourself that it is difficult to overcome even minor mistakes. You often experience self-doubt yet desire to believe in yourself. Lets talk. It isn't easy seeking out support, but you did it. Everyone at some point in life experiences difficulty and hardship. I get it, I have walked a hard road too.

Existence can be a struggle, especially for folks holding identities marginalized by the dominant forces in this society. In all the joyful, unnerving, enraging moments, with their coexisting complexities, we sometimes need a place to unpack our experiences. I hope to cultivate space to lay down this baggage and examine, deconstruct and make choices of how we relate to the stories we carry, to each other and to ourselves. Through work at community addictions agencies in the GTA over the last nine years, I have supported individuals and families dealing with the effects of substance use through counselling, advocacy, and care.

If so, you are not alone. There are so many messages about what women should be doing, feeling and looking like that it's easy to forget what matters to us as individuals. From the start, we need to empower our girls to celebrate what makes them unique so that they are able to flourish through the teenage years. Most importantly, women need to be grounded in who they are to navigate the conflicting roles of professional, partner, mother and lover.

You've been thinking about seeing a therapist for a while now, perhaps months or even years. Maybe you thought you were managing well, but then COVID happened. Let's face it, life can feel chaotic and messy at times. This may lead us to feeling overwhelmed, confused and lacking a sense of direction. We may feel burdened with anxiety, worry, fear or anger regarding the wellbeing of ourselves or relationships that we care about. In an effort to be helpful, family or friends may try to give advice, but that may leave us feeling even worse. This can make reaching out for support all the harder.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in L2T can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in L2T or for a L2T coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include L2T coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills therapists.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L2T are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L2T you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L2T and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L2T or family therapy in L2T.
