I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

“Any worthwhile conversation starts with listening”. We all benefit from feeling heard. As a clinician, I am able to hold space for clients to process all that they think, feel and have experienced. I help my clients rethink and reframe stories that no longer serve them of how they fit in and move through the world. Some of us are lucky to have friends and family that can support us in this way, but at times we may find ourselves needing more. Having someone who can listen to you free of judgment and provide positive support can be a game changer!

If you are struggling with problematic life situations such as trauma, grief, relational issues, or other emotional difficulties, then now is the time to address them. Change can be a scary process and taking the first step to deal with a difficult problem may seem overwhelming. Working with a professional therapist can help to make those life transitions and the process of change more manageable, achievable and rewarding. I have spent the last twelve years helping people resolve a variety of difficult psychological and emotional problems.

How that needs to look may involve both expected and unanticipated barriers, feel overwhelming, lead to questions about personal meaning and purpose, or trigger what feels unresolved. We may not figure out all the answers and solutions together, but you don't have to move through it alone.

Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

If you struggle with anxiety or depression, you know how difficult it can be to cope. Anxiety is easy to recognize. We worry more, avoid difficult situations, and feel tense, awkward, or ineffective. Depression feels exhausting and hopeless. We judge ourselves and other people harshly, feel intense sadness, and become passive. It can feel like we can't do anything right or that things never go our way. Imagine being more active, skilled, and competent, communicating more effectively in relationships, being more productive at work or school, and feeling more satisfied with life.

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 Chico 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 Chico or for a Chico coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Chico 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 Chico are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chico. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chico
