"Therapy should be practical. It should help you feel more capable of handling the daily challenges of life. And, when you are ready, help you dive deeper and untangle the patterns that make you miserable. I work with pre-teens, teens and adults. My strong suit is helping my clients navigate adolescence, "adulting," partnership and parenthood. Interested in supervision for post-graduate interns and practice-building for mental health clinicians? See my website for more info."

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).
