" Young people experience many challenges in the cyber age. Not only are they struggling to cope with traditional stressors such as family, friends, and school, but they feel sadder and lonelier than ever. My goal is to assist our youth with finding their voice, embracing their strengths, and for them to become empowered. I want to provide preteens, adolescents, and young adults with a safe, judgment-free space that allows them to explore their cultural, racial, economic, spiritual, and gender identities so that they may decide who they are for themselves."

"Are you seeking a space where your authentic self feels seen and understood? Therapy is a holding environment for you to express a range of emotions verbally and non-verbally. I provide an opportunity to do this through consistency and compassion. My passion is working with families, adults, and children and teens by assisting them to tap into their internal & external resources to heal and live more fully.

"As we go through life, we all develop particular patterns for dealing with challenges. Though some of these patterns are helpful, others actually get in the way of reaching our goals. Sometimes we're not even aware that what we're doing may be sabotaging our happiness and success. In therapy, I will give you direct feedback which will illuminate these problematic patterns. This will help you understand how to overcome obstacles, and find deeper satisfaction in your life. As a therapist with over 20 years experience, I have helped many people work through depression and anxiety and move towards success."

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 Oakland 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 Oakland or for an Oakland coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Oakland coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
