I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (#76116) practicing in West LA. I am a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification, Certified Clinician™ and I specialize in providing Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Individual DBT sessions often include time learning skills to tolerate distress, regulate your emotions, increase interpersonal effectiveness and increase your mindfulness of the current moment. In addition to the DBT skills, I will weave in skills from CBT, ACT and IPT skills. In addition to learning new coping skills, we will process what comes up from the past, present and future.

Using a humanistic and attachment oriented lens I collaboratively explore the origins of difficult issues, and offer coping skills toward the healthy management of emotions and life stressors.
Everyone has moments in their life when things feel "just not quite right." My work as a therapist is focused on accompanying individuals (12 years+), couples and families through their struggles with life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and unprocessed trauma or difficult childhood experiences. Improving your quality of life is my goal. I know that feeling heard, seen, understood, and connected to someone you trust in a safe and non-judgmental space is essential for the process of healing, finding new direction and making healthy long-lasting changes.

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. Having gone through the difficult work of identifying how my own past has contributed to continued dysfunction in my day-to-day routine, as well as continued repetition of patterns in relationships, I know first-hand what one experiences.

The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self.

Hi and welcome to my practice. Has Covid-19 triggered a whole new set of challenges? Are you a teen or adult feeling down, anxious, unmotivated or simply unhappy? First know that you are not alone. The isolation, change in routine and absence of regular social expressive outlets have placed new pressures on everyone forcing us to find different ways of coping. The upside is you have already made the first courageous step toward the positive changes you are seeking.

I will help you break down the negative thought patterns that are holding you back, build healthy coping skills, and finally put down the burdens of your past.
Do you feel overwhelmed by anxiety, stress, or defeat as a result of trauma or a significant life change? Maybe a relationship has ended or a new phase of life has just begun. Perhaps you’re living with the long-term effects of abuse, assault, or other traumatic experience. You may feel unsafe & out of control of your life or emotions, anxious about even the smallest things, or like you just can’t find your footing. Eventually, these things start to overflow into other areas of life: your relationships, work, and decisions about the future. And yet, despite how hard things are right now, you know there’s more to life than this.

I really enjoy working with individuals and couples. I help clients become more aware of their body sensations and use that language to identify feelings and thoughts. This allows clients to connect with their full internal experience. Clients find this extremely helpful, especially those who have suffered traumatic incidents or long-term traumas. I am gentle and supportive in my work and use deep emotional exploration of past and present mixed with a body-based mindful approach to move clients toward healing. I am EFT informed when it comes to couples work. Couples find me grounding, fair, and supportive.

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