People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

Are you sick of feeling uncomfortable in your body? Are you exhausted from trying to battle the constant negative thoughts about yourself? You may even start to notice that these feelings and thoughts are getting in the way of you being able to enjoy your life. And so you try and reach out for support to family and friends. It helps to feel heard and yet you still aren't able to shake this self-doubt and sense that you just aren't good enough. You want to feel secure and confident, but trying to get there on your own just isn't working. It's become too tiring and confusing to feel better all on your own.

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 60202 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 60202 or for a 60202 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 60202 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 60202 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 60202

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 60202 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 60202 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 60202 or family therapy in 60202.
