"Many clients I meet with have said to me, "I don't know what's wrong with me" and my response is, "there's absolutely nothing wrong with you and you're perfect just as you are". No one needs to be fixed but perhaps there is need for some support and guidance to figure out what's working and what's not working within one's life. I provide a more holistic mental health approach. I practice very client-centered interventions and we'll go at your pace. I thoroughly enjoy working with women and couples."

It takes courage to reach out and get the support you need to feel better and to move forward in your life. Through the collaborative process of therapy we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing, looking at the impact of events and experiences to gain insight into the way these experiences may have influenced your current attitudes, beliefs and feelings about yourself and others."

"Those who seek me out for support typically come from a place of doing "OK" but desiring to be better - happier, more fulfilled, with a greater sense of purpose and mission in life. Often it is from a sense of incompleteness, seeking a deeper connection with God, having experienced a feeling that something is "missing" in life. Perhaps the motivation is lifelong learning - about oneself and one's spiritual life. At other times people come to me after a significant loss - or cumulative losses - that makes real the pressing feelings of sadness, fear, or anger of grief. Above all, one comes seeking professional acceptance and guidance."

"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."

"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."

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.
