Do you find that old coping skills have become inadequate as time goes on and life's challenges change? Are you wrestling with emotional clarity or the resolution of past experiences or circumstances. For many, a collaboration with a therapist can provide a safe space to explore areas of dissatisfaction or conflict with oneself and others. Finding a good therapist is a matter of finding someone who listens, empathizes, is responsive, and can empower you with hope and bravery to do the difficult work involved in change. I can provide that individualized approach for you.

I offer a casual therapeutic space where you can feel safe to consider new angles and to practice old and new coping skills.
So much of what life brings us is beyond our control- childhood trauma, loss of our loved ones, difficult transitions that we must make in order to remain true to ourselves or genes that make us susceptible to mental health disorders. In our busy lives, we sometimes forget to take a step back to re-evaluate how we are caring for our mind and heart. 2020 seemed like a call to action for the world to look inward and redefine goals such as our life style, career choices, relationship dynamics and tired old behaviors that get in our way over and over again.

Ever wonder what it would be like to get to the root of why you keep struggling? Do you feel like coping skills and distractions are just not enough or that you are always going to have to use them in order to get through your day? I firmly believe that we are trapped by underlying issues such as early childhood experiences, trauma, insecurities, as well as bad relationships.

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 Bel Air, Los Angeles 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 Bel Air, Los Angeles or for a Bel Air, Los Angeles coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Bel Air, Los Angeles coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
