* VOTED TOP 3 MARRIAGE COUNSELORS * "With Isabell’s help, I experienced profound healing and growth beyond my wildest imagination. In every session, I received absolute presence and compassion—no note taking, no distractions, no judgment, pure being in the Now. I sought out her help when I was going through an awfully painful breakup. What would have taken traditional therapists several years, Isabell helped me dissolve in just 10 weeks. What an amazingly liberating experience. I came out of this counseling as a strong, independent woman bursting with a love for life." - Female Client, 43

A positive connection between a client and a therapist is imperative for the therapeutic process to be beneficial, which is why I value creating a strong foundation built on collaboration, warmth and empathy. My goal is to create a "brave space" where we can together explore ways of overcoming obstacles that might be holding you back from the life you want and deserve. I consider the role of culture, environment, and relationships to gain a better insight into each client's circumstances and help guide them in achieving healthy, whole and harmonious lives.

I believe that we all have the resources within us to heal, and yet sometimes we need a little help. The right connection between a therapist/client can help start that healing. Maybe your teenager is sullen and isolated. Maybe you are in love and scared to be truly seen by another. Maybe there’s an angry side of you that your family doesn’t understand and a vulnerable side that is too scary to feel. Together we can work on acceptance, healthy coping skills, and letting go of bad habits. Without judgment, we will build an understanding of who you are as a person so as to realize your strengths and fortify them.

Thank you for taking a moment to read about me and my work. My approach uses insight and depth psychotherapy combined with Mindfulness within a framework of awareness of the body. When our living process becomes stuck, therapy can move it forward. If you feel stuck in repetitive behaviors, painful feelings, and recurring anxious thoughts, I want to help you to identify how you are bogged down, so you can feel better. I can help to re-focus a sense of purpose...a way to step into your life more completely. This may include taking action if feeling adrift, or bringing clarity to a relationship.

Stepfamily life is challenging. You may very well be wondering how you're going to do this. It looks like it "should" be easier than it is and that you "should" be able to figure this out. Your loved one cannot understand why you struggle. But I do. I've been there and it is why I help couples dealing with stepfamily life. You are going through challenges that simply do not occur in a first family. Learning about these dynamics and working with them creates more remarriage success. I can help you find success in your stepfamily.

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.
