"Is this you? All we do is fight! It seems like we never hear each other and neither of us listens anymore! It is so frustrating I do not want to come home and try. I have been successfully helping couples to develop the tools necessary to communicate effectively for more than 20 years. Having disagreements is not unusual. Learning how to resolve disagreements is a key element to healthy relationships. Conflict resolution is about learning to fight fairly by listening in an atmosphere of Respect, Trust, Safety and love and not placing my desire to be right over the relationship. $150 per 50-minute session. Discounted rates apt.11-4"

"Life is a series of challenges. Many people wrestle with emotional clarity or the resolution of past experiences or circumstances. Most couples experience communication breakdowns or breaches in trust at some time. Old coping skills often become inadequate as time goes on and life's challenges change. For many, a collaboration with a therapist can provide a safe space to explore areas of conflict with oneself and others. Finding a good therapist is a matter of finding someone who listens, empathizes, is responsive, and can empower clients with hope and bravery to do the difficult work involved in change. "

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