I see my work with people as helping them to live happier and more fulfilling lives. Because we are all different, my services are highly individualized and I do not have a "one-size-fits-all" approach. I take a collaborative approach to working with you. Together, we will first understand your issues and then find better ways of coping, by learning and practicing skills that will allow you to make long-term changes in your life.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.

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 20878 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 20878 or for a 20878 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 20878 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
