I work with people of all ages, backgrounds, orientations and ethnicities; however, my practice was refined through my work serving persons harmed through provisions related to educational, criminal justice, foster-care and/or military systems."

"Life is stressful, and sometimes it seems overwhelming. That's where I can help. Many of my clients are highly motivated, achievement-oriented professionals who feel held back or "stuck." Some are dealing with stress and anxiety, some are having trouble finding focus or motivation, and many are trying to clarify their purpose and direction. I help them find a way through these issues--particularly as they show up in the workplace. Like it or not, we spend a huge amount of time and energy at work, so it's important that we spend it well."

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.
