"My name is Alexander Warnow and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist practicing in Alameda, CA. I work primarily with adults, teens, and couples. I help them to live more fulfilling, connected lives. Often what brings someone to seek therapy is a chronic issue that has reached a crisis point: anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth, intimacy problems, communication issues and many more. Sometimes it is a recent change in one's life: infidelity, a move, or the end of a relationship. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road towards healing and growth."

"I have a passion for working with and supporting people. I'm not the type of therapist who sits quietly, hands crossed, saying "mmm-hmm, how are you feeling?" I’m much more interactive, and will provide you with a confidential, comfortable and safe space for you to talk, ask questions, and share your feelings and emotions. Together, we will work to develop the tools to help you through this journey called life. With my compassion, support, friendliness, and added touch of humor (when appropriate!) we will team to work through the difficulties or problems you are experiencing."

"As a psychotherapist, I help clients redefine how they live their lives. I am a licensed clinical social worker who sees children, adolescents and families as well as individual adults. By engaging in a series of conversations, I will help you to challenge the problematic assumptions and ways of being that prevent you from realizing the full potential of your life. I work from a colloborative stance that assumes you are the expert on your life. But my own expertise in helping people overcome emotional problems, troublesome habits and relationship roadblocks can help you create new solutions to old problems."

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 94501 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 94501 or for an 94501 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 94501 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
