"Two guiding principles for therapy are compassion and accountability. Compassion of others helps us hang in there when life is hard. Accountability compels us to use what we learn, as it turns us away from self-pity and blame. Sometimes we learn life's lessons the hard way-it just seems to be part of being human. If you're feeling stuck in a confusing or painful situation, consider therapy. It isn't about telling you what to do. It's about learning how to sort things out for yourself."

"Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time."

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 64114 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 64114 or for a 64114 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 64114 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 64114 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 64114 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 64114 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 64114 or family therapy in 64114.
