First steps towards healing. You made it! Finding the right therapist can be a difficult choice, yet this choice is the first step towards healing. Life, at times, gets challenging and it's at the these moments we typically seek guidance for change. Yet, we're not always aware of the tools and resources already inside of us that prepare us for that change.

I believe childhood experiences create the template for adult life. Early losses, separations and trauma define the choices of strategies or defenses we use as adults. Pain and suffering can be caused by these early experiences. It is my job as a therapist to join my clients in their journey of discovery of these templates and help them to gain a more fulfilled life. I provide individual, couples and family counseling services in both English and Spanish in a safe, comfortable environment.

I believe that the most effective form of therapy is one where the therapist and the client can have a relationship among equals. A therapist's job is to help his or her client achieve desired goals; whether they be goals about improving relationships, learning new and more effective ways of dealing with everyday stressors, or understanding self better. I am fluent in Spanish and can also support families in dealing with issues related to acculturation, and other teen/parent challenges. I am experienced in issues relating to co-parenting and can support couples (divorced or married) in reaching agreements.

Our thoughts, emotions and actions are all connected. During periods of high stress, negative thoughts and overwhelming emotion can cause dysfunction in our daily lives. Therapy can support you in reframing negative thoughts, so you can better manage your emotional experience and thus, change harmful actions toward yourself and others. My experience includes working with adolescents, teens, families and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment, opposition, relationship and behavioral problems. I believe that therapy is a collaborative partnership between the client and therapist.

We as people are are all broken on some level, but we don't need to stay that way. Depending upon the cards we've been dealt in life (what's been done to us, and what we've done to ourselves) fractures in our world view, relationships, and self concept arise. I work best with a client who comes willingly to counseling, is motivated for change, and is open minded to new perspectives of responding to their problems.

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