Unlike most psychotherapists, I’m a Board Certified Addiction Specialist, well versed in both abstinence and harm reduction strategies.

"Do you move between culturally different worlds on a regular basis? Perhaps you feel that you don't completely fit in, that your identity is mixed or "in between," and you long to say what you've never before dared to say? Maybe you missed a warm, nurturing upbringing because you were taught to focus on achievement at the expense of emotional needs. Is this a legacy you wish to accept for yourself or your children? As the American-born child of Filipino immigrants, these issues resonate deeply with me, and I can help if you feel stuck between opposing cultural values."

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Oakland are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Oakland you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Oakland and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Oakland or family therapy in Oakland.
