"I am currently accepting child and adult clients in both San Francisco and Marin. In general, my approach is insight oriented, psychodynamic and solution based. My clients would say that I am excellent at understanding the complex dynamics of both psychological and interpersonal issues. I have excellent rapport with parents and understand that bringing a child into therapy can be a difficult decision. Therapy may be a longer-term process, or it may be brief to solve an immediate crisis. Working together, we can be successful with both approaches. I am also accepting Parent Coordination clients, and Co-Parent Counseling"

"Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and supporting people to live more authentically. In my practice I emphasize working with children and adolescents. One of the most essential developmental tasks for young people is to discover who they are. Therapy is profoundly well fit for this process. Developing an understanding of one's emotional landscape at a young age allows for greater maturity and authentic decision making. Therapy helps young people unravel complex family dynamics, thus increasing genuine individuality. The outcome is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep satisfaction."

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 94949 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 94949 or for an 94949 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 94949 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
