I help people who take care of everyone but themselves develop a healing and restorative practice of self care, self compassion, and self love. Usually it's guilt and/or fear that stops us from putting our own needs on par with others.' We don't want to be selfish or needy or difficult. But we end up exhausted, depleted, and resentful. Deep down, we really want to be cared for the way we care for others.

Are you the spouse of a law enforcement officer who is constantly caught between needing connection with your partner while also respecting the burdens he carries from his work? Even when your spouse comes home, he’s not fully present with you and your family, remaining distant and hard to connect with. You manage your home, show up to events solo, and endure the ups and downs of shift rotations because you love your partner, but deep down feel resentful that he isn’t available to you the way you need him to be. All of this is just made harder by the unknowns of the job and the anxiety of knowing if he’ll come home at all.

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 94523 can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
