My clinical practice draws from extensive training in psychotherapy that integrates a psychodynamic perspective with therapeutic interventions that match the unique needs of a client. The range of interpersonal and skill-based interventions includes an understanding of family, culture, and gender specific influences on the current issues or concerns. The use of mindfulness principles and skills provides an added support to clients for strengthening their ability to better manage stress and for overall well-being. In over two decades as a psychotherapist I have consistently found that an integrative approach is most effective for promoting the positive outcomes that my clients are seeking.

Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.

My practice was born out of a tradition of commitment to children. From familial and professional roots I have witnessed the value of creating a safe space to allow children to explore and grow. Beginning my career as a teacher, I have watched and marveled at the ways in which children learn and flourish in nurturing environments. As a child therapist I have also seen children suffer when their needs go unmet.

When an individual is abusing substances, often times it manifests itself as chaos, unpredictability, and complete confusion. As a result, not only is the individual tormented, but the suffering extends to their family and loved ones. When this happens, confusion, anger, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions frequently arise in all parties involved, as a solution to this overwhelming problem seems unfathomable. To compound this issue, the substance abuse treatment industry can be incredibly difficult to navigate.

Our way of live has been turned upside down. The structures of our community that ground, secure and orient us, have been hit by this pandemic. We find ourselves feeling disoriented and out of sorts. Others are grappling with not only the upending of routines caused by the pandemic but are fearing for their life or their livelihood. Whatever your situation, your life has been changed right now by something outside your control, and this is invariably stressful. And, of course, many of you were dealing with mental health issues or traumatic life events before the complication of a pandemic.

Coping Skills Therapists
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, therapists in 06437 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 06437 or for 06437 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 06437 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
