"I have worked with adults and teens for over fifteen years and specialize in helping people live more conscious, meaningful and contented lives. Living in the bay area can be stressful and demanding. Gaining more insight about one's anxiety or dissatisfaction at work; sorting through relational issues such as doubts about the marriage or challenges with a teenager; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore (alcohol, eating patterns, internet or shopping compulsion) - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life."

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).
