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.

Adjusting to life transitions and managing stress can seem overwhelming at times. If you experience anxiety, depression, other mental health symptoms; ---or just life changes, you're familiar with the desire to find stability and ways to cope. It could be a change in job, managing stress from work, strain in a relationship with a loved one, recent grief and loss, feelings of worthlessness, feeling on edge, or looking for a tune up after life events. Are you looking for a safe space and support as you work through life stressors? My goal is to help clients who are looking to start a new chapter in their life.

I follow the notion that the relationship is one of the most important aspects of the healing process and utilize it as one of the main tools in the work with my clients. Whether it is processing trauma, exploring anxiety or depression, addressing relationship issues, or getting through a transitional phase of life, among many other reasons, sometimes therapy with a strong therapeutic relationship as a foundation can make a difference.

While 'regular therapy' focuses on the past and the emotional wounds that come with it, coaching focuses on goal setting and taking action, understanding our present and finding ways to create a brighter future. It's about changing old habits, developing new ones, embracing change and moving with ease towards a more fulfilling life. Hypnosis is a form of guided meditation that works with the subconscious, where our habits, memories and emotions are stored. Combining life coaching with hypnotherapy brings about the most beneficial results, engaging both, the conscious and subconscious, empowering people to achieve lasting, positive results and enhanced mental / emotional attitudes.

Often in the pursuit of happiness, we are so focused on a destination that there is little joy in our journey.  We work so hard to attain career, relationship, degree or professional aspirations that the outcome is not worth the personal sacrifice. The loss of excitement in our dreams can be diminishing and frustrating, taking the magic and excitement out of life. Therapy can help demystify how you’ve arrived at this particular place in life, how you’ve lost your passion or questioned your values. Therapy can support you in regaining the magic of your life and bringing your dreams into the present.

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.
