"I utilize both relational theory and mindfulness practice as grounding principles of my therapy style. Relational work is based on the idea that through our relationships and knowing how we operate within them, we can better understand ourselves and grow to our fullest potentials. Mindfulness practice seeks to observe and notice our reactions to experiences - from the most minute to the largest, for the purposes of decreasing our suffering. I seek to support people in healing from interpersonal, familiar, societal, systemic, and historical traumas. I provide psychotherapy for individuals, those in relationships (couples, poly, friendships, etc) and families."

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."

"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "

"We all have our own unique truths. As we live as human beings, however, we tend to be disconnected from our truths in order to physically and emotionally survive in the world. Ironically, the more we push our truths away in order to be "alive" in the world, the more "dead" we feel in our bodies. When we have the courage to pause and deeply feel ourselves, we begin to notice that something most important has been missing from our lives. If you have ever experienced this sense of something missing, you may have arrived on the right page. "

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.
