I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

We all struggle when communicating with our partners from time to time. During lockdown, it may be happening "way too much"! During the shelter-in-place orders, feelings of frustration, fear, sadness, grief, and anger might be starting to build. You might be fighting more, or retreating to your corners and there is an icy chill in the house. Maybe its resentment? If any of these emotions seem familiar, it may be time to reach out for support. I offer in-person and video sessions.

Active Imagination and non-directive guided imagery can help you access inner wisdom and gain insight. While the thinking, rational mind is essential for everyday concerns and problem-solving, its usefulness is limited regarding questions of meaning, value, and depth. Active Imagination constructively channels the psyche's innate creative power. When we tap into the wellspring of the visionary imagination, we feel an enlivened sense of meaning, purpose, and connection.

Clients tell me that my ability to stay consistent, calm, and grounded helps them slow down so they can connect to their body - feel their emotions - and experience themselves more whole and alive. Since 2004 I have worked with people with problematic sexual behavior and their loved ones as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) using trauma therapies and Pat Carnes Task Centered Approach.

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.
