"My therapy practice is rooted in a collaborative, non-pathologizing, strengths-based orientation. I listen in a way that is about understanding and seeing you as more than problems or struggles, offering transparency, gentle honesty, compassion, and respect for your self-determination and process. I work with you to create space to name problems or beliefs that may be unnamed; together we can examine how these forces are at work in your life, as well as in your relationships to yourself and others. I offer stability and clarity as you grapple with what is going on your life."

"Whatever you have lived through--healing is possible. I provide therapy for people living outside of the mainstream, whether because of values and ideals or personal identity. Therapy with me doesn't require that you or I believe there is anything wrong with you. Instead it is a place where both of us work collaboratively and creatively to develop an environment where you can take more and more risks to be yourself. It is a place to keep growing. It is a place to get real about what matters to you and what challenges you. Keywords: radical, queer, artists, activists, social justice, progressive"

"As each of us walks the journey of our lives sometimes we find ourselves in a dark place, lost and alone. We may be overwhelmed by the many paths before us. We may be struggling with pain weighing us down from the past, stuck in worry and fears of the future or engulfed in the pressures, conflicts and demands of the present pulling us in different directions from without, and within. It's times like these we seek a guide, someone with knowledge and insight, someone we can open up to and trust to help us find our way again, connect with our strengths and resources and find our own inner guidance.

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.
