Are you someone who feels like they have been struggling with anxiety and depression for their whole life? Have you ever had thoughts like “There must be something wrong with me”, “My friends and family must think I’m a mess”, or “What is wrong with me that I can’t do the things I’ve always been able to do?” This may have brought on feelings of hopelessness, feeling alone, and feeling like things will never get better. It may have also brought on feelings of shame for not being able to “take care of the problem” or guilt for not spending time with family and friends like you used to.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction I know the challenges of this lifestyle. You do not have to go to 'rehab' to make lasting changes in your life. Leaving your family, job, school or other responsibilities for an extended period of time is not always needed to get yourself healthy and on the right track. Being caught in the cycle of addiction is hard...feelings of anxiety, fear, failure, unworthiness, and shame. You may have tried stopping on your own, only to find yourself engaging in the same unhelpful behavior. Breaking this cycle on your own is tough! Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

My main way of helping people is through EMDR therapy. What EMDR therapy does is help your brain do what it is supposed to do -- heal itself. At times, the brain is unable to heal due to how some memories are stored in the body. Sometimes memories are stored in the exact same way they where felt. This could explain why some war veterans feel in danger when hearing fireworks on the 4th of July. What is happening is that their bodies are reacting to unprocessed memories of war, which are felt in the exact same way they were experienced. This is what is called an automatic response.

On a daily basis I am given the distinct opportunity to work with people as a vehicle to help them to find their own truth and happiness. Based on our life's path we attach ourselves to people, places and things as a way to connect to the most basic part of ourselves, deserving and capable human beings. Sometimes these attachments result in being pushed further from our genuine selves and create patterns that leave us feeling lost and searching. I believe in the basic premise that at birth people are purely lovable and worthy and have a natural right to be seen and heard. My work with you is formed from this basic belief.

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