Can you imagine a life where you are at peace with your feelings, able to make good decisions, and in control of your behavior? What would it be like to no longer feel overwhelmed by stress or defeated by your emotions? When overwhelming emotions take hold, your work or relationships suffer and other areas of your life can deteriorate, keeping you from enjoying the life you know you could have. One of my goals as a therapist is to provide a meaningful connection and comfortable environment, whether you are considering making important changes or looking for support through difficult times.

I believe in healing power of laughter and the importance of nurturing a warm, accepting environment where clients are comfortable, at ease, and safe. Therapy has the capacity to help each of us on our journey through life. Changes in our lives, unresolved past events, and worries about the future can severely deplete our emotional resources. These effect how we care for ourselves and others.

It is human to experience longing, discomfort, anxiety, sadness, grief, loss and trauma. To learn from our hard experiences; to grow, heal and change in response to them takes courage and strength. At the center of my work is an unwavering belief in your capacity. I believe that the life you imagine is possible and that, if you're reading this, it's already on the way.

You might live outside the box a little (or a lot). You live boldly and bravely and sometimes that feels scary and overwhelming. You dive into relationships, friendships and family and sometimes that means there are conflicts! You know you don't want to live an unexamined life, and you KNOW shame is sometimes riding shotgun and keeping you small. You'll hear me talk about shame and how it keeps us stuck. You'll receive training in mindful practices such as meditation, body scans, and visualization exercises. Most importantly, though, we will focus on what is important to you.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Tucson are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Tucson. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Tucson

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Tucson you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Tucson and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Tucson or family therapy in Tucson.
