"Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices."

"I believe that mental health is a vital component in creating a complete and satisfying experience of personhood. It's as important to take care of your inner life and psychological well-being as it is to take care of your physical health. I feel that every individual is unique, and therefore every therapeutic relationship is unique. For counseling to be effective, it is essential that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and understood. The key ingredient for successful results in psychotherapy is a strong relationship between you and your therapist."

"Therapy, as I have practiced it for over 20 years, involves helping a client develop a new clarity about their life and its context. Some aspects of their life to explore are: their thoughts, feelings, values, concerns about others, and their concerns about themselves. Once a new clarity about their life is achieved, new solutions to their dilemmas will evolve. I certainly believe that clients are individuals, but I also know that they are connected to larger systems. My extensive knowledge of Individual and Family Systems allows me to work successfully with individuals, couples, and entire families."

I help people understand the cultural context of thinking, and how our thinking, feelings and behavior affect each other. We connect that to brain functioning and to how the language and logic we were taught and practice can either grow or distress our brain.

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.
