I love the work I do as a psychotherapist. I see myself as a healer and guide. With you as my client, we navigate the challenges and perhaps, traumas of your past. Being guided through the changes you want to make, I offer empathy and compassion, knowing that self-exploration that leads to desired change can be a challenge, and sometimes the challenge becomes too great to want to continue. It is a given that I listen with in the moment “presence”, and I believe that this “presence” is the key to healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your guide and co-healer on your path of growth, healing and change.

Anxiety hurts. Whether it wakes you up in the morning and lingers all day or hits you like gang busters when you least expect it. Whether you know where it's coming from or not, anxiety tells you something is wrong and needs fixing. Anxiety is often tied to trauma and grief. You lose a person, relationship or perhaps a dream and you're left in a puddle of pain. Therapy is about working through grief and finding the courage to start again. You develop coping skills to feel better and communication skills to express your needs. You identify personal goals, and together, we chart your course toward your best and truest self.

The majority of difficulties we experience in our life probably have something to do with relationships. Either the relationship with ourselves, our family, our friends, our jobs, our environment, etc. We have a tendency, many times without knowing, to remake the type of relationships we experienced early in our lives. Therapy helps in shining some light into these type of patterns. We can play detective a bit. Figure out triggers, thoughts, feelings, behaviors; all surrounding the problem we are experiencing. The therapeutic relationship serves as a safe relationship to play out all the patterns and adopt new ones.

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