The alliance we build as client and therapist is a necessary and very important part of the therapeutic process. I carefully assess each individuals or couples strengths, history of relationships, sense of self, developmental status, learning styles, symptoms and readiness to change. I believe that what you find helpful to talk about in each session is most important. You and I will develop a treatment plan based upon these factors, your experience, my professional experience, research findings and what you would like to accomplish in therapy. I have a general practice and also have areas of specialty.

Eastside Insight is the psychotherapy practice of Rose Gillis. Eastside's name, logo, and motto reflect the belief that the elements needed for overcoming an issue are already within. Pulling this intelligence into consciousness is a form of learning called insight. When insight becomes blocked then a relationship with a confidant, who doesn’t feel burdened by your troubles, can help in the process of bringing your truth forward into awareness. It is important then to find a therapist who you connect with, is objective, and supports your needs. The website eastsideinsight.com was created for you, with this pursuit in mind.

I work with guys in hi-tech, mostly software engineers and managers, who struggle with some sort of anxiety &/or depression, often brought on by things like workplace stress, relationship problems, or big life transitions (like having a baby). My typical client leads an engaged life of achievement and focus, and he usually feels on top of things. But then life has come along and hit him with something his well-developed intellect can't quite handle. The result is that he feels stalled and filled with self-doubt - something he is unaccustomed to and deeply uncomfortable with.

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 98040 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 98040 or for an 98040 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 98040 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
