Imagine what your life could be like if ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or relationship issues no longer controlled your life. Imagine being able to manage the stressors that continually weigh heavily on you. When you have tried to resolve these issues on your own, but haven't found the result you are looking for, it's time to reach out for support. It's not about working harder, but smarter. My job is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to allow you to find the balance and improvement you have been seeking.

As a social worker my training has taught me to focus on the person in the environment. That means as individuals with unique strengths and weaknesses we are influenced by the people and circumstances around us. When the path we are traveling in this environment becomes difficult to follow or recognize, therapy can be your compass. The COMPASSionate environment of the therapeutic setting and relationship can help restore your inner sense of direction.

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 20817 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 20817 or for a 20817 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 20817 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20817 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20817
