Do you feel like your body has been hijacked by sensations that you can't identify or pinpoint? Do you find yourself disconnected from your life and those things you once enjoyed doing? Have you ever experienced or seen something in the past that now invades your life on a daily basis? Have you ever just wanted to hide away from everything? I know that feeling and I'm telling you right now, you're not alone.

Most of us want to live our best life, yet so many of us feel like we can’t quite get there. Something always seems to be standing in the way. If this is true for you, maybe this leaves you feeling anxious, depressed, disconnected or critical of yourself. Maybe you are struggling with past trauma or addiction issues that just won’t let go. You’ve tried talk therapy. Maybe you’ve even tried 12 step programs or self help workshops. Nothing seems to get you the momentum you desire to get you past your past. You want change, you crave understanding and better relationships. The question is…how do I get there?

**I am currently 100% telehealth (Zoom/phone).** Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. 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.

Anxiety throws you into the future, and it is never a future you actually want, yet you spend so much time worrying, catastrophizing, and mentally preparing for atrocities that are not likely to occur. The same goes for depression, shame and guilt, you are pulled back in time by old negative beliefs that weren’t yours to begin with. Hyper vigilance, flashbacks, nightmares, dissociation, these too may keep you in the past. Kurt Vonnegut’s famous science fiction novel, “Slaughter House-five,” describes a soldier in the war zone becoming “unstuck in time.” This is what trauma feels like for many people.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
