Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

I believe the only prerequisite for being a candidate for psychotherapy is a desire to become more conscious about your life and to change those characteristics that are roadblocks to achieving your goals. I believe that dreams provide insight into your life and are therefore revealing and important to understand. Whatever your concerns or challenges, if you are willing to embark on a journey toward consciousness, I would be happy to guide you.

My practice is focused on helping individuals understand and heal from the profound wounds caused by emotional or physical violence in close personal relationships. This includes adults who've experienced childhood abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment, as well as sexual assault, violence, and betrayal trauma. By conceptualizing complex forms of trauma from a feminist perspective, I investigate issues of gender, power, and culture, and identify them as the center of oppression, distress, and dysfunction in a person's life. Relational trauma often creates isolation, and I believe it is only in relationship that we heal.

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 98103 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 98103 or for an 98103 coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include 98103 coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
