Therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply and genuinely with yourself in a way that translates to deeper connections with others in your life. It is also an opportunity to make changes in your life, get support during a difficult time, work on relationships with family, friends or romantic partners, or heal from a deep loss. I offer therapy which is collaborative, active and respectful. I listen attentively, ask questions, offer observations, develop strategies and give feedback with warmth, empathy and a lack of judgement.

In psychotherapy, we work to create space for thoughts, feelings, and memories to emerge and to be understood. Understanding supports developing new skills which allow for new and more positive choices to be made based in the present, cleared of the distortions of the past.

Sometimes life creates change when we aren't ready. You may find that life transitions have left you feeling differently than you expected, or you're discovering things about yourself that you aren't sure what to do with. Sometimes loved ones change in ways that challenge us, and sometimes we grow and hope our loved ones will grow with us. Sometimes LGBTQIA+ identities have specific needs, particularly for couples and families adjusting to newly expressed identities and searching for a healthy, supportive dynamic. Unfortunately, coping with these unexpected changes usually isn't a smooth, easy, or pretty process.

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 27705 can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
