""It's never to late to have a happy childhood" This quote embodies the core belief and hope that I bring into my practice. Most people bring wounds from childhood into their adulthood. These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive."

"I have been active in mental health care for over 30 years. Many of my clients are referred because of my knowledge of PTSD and other trauma issues. I began trauma-informed psychotherapy by servicing children under the care of the Department of Children's Services. Through Play Therapy to address immediate traumatic experiences, I gained an understanding of the brain development across the human growth years. As I became expert in treatment of all ages, I learned that untreated trauma was the underlying cause of chronic anxiety, panic attacks, depression, many somatic medical problems,and cognitive learning difficulties."

"Have you suffered a trauma? Few people of adult age have escaped experiencing a traumatic event of some type. A trauma can be minor, or it can be major. Traumas can cause or worsen PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, depression, substance abuse, shame, difficulty relating to others, self-harm, and low self-esteem to name a few. Trauma can also increase the risk of repeated abusive relationships. Maybe you have an inner critic that is interfering in your ability to enjoy life. Perhaps you are doing well, but you're struggling in parenting your children. Parenting children of all ages can be very challenging. "

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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield or for a Bakersfield coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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