Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Life can be diffcult; talking can help. My goal is to help a person, within the context of safety and confidentiality, confront the issues which burden a person. At times this may involve talking about our past. At other times counseling may involve learning new skills and discovering new ways to deal with situations in a way that is healthy. Sometimes the process of counseling involves discomfort and can be challenging. What I provide is a listening ear and a willingness to walk with the client on the journey of life. Counseling is a positive step.

Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive.

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 49684 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 49684 or for a 49684 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 49684 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
