"I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a psychotherapy practice for individual adults. You may be seeking ways to cope more effectively with life transitions, relationship difficulties, and with challenging situations. A major part of this process is learning as much as possible about yourself and about the challenge you are facing. Another part is increasing your resilience in dealing with life's uncertainties. You may have acquired thoughts or behaviors over the years that worked well in the past, but are now interfering with your ability to reach your full potential."

"Going into psychotherapy or coaching should be like putting the finishing touches on your life. My goal in working with clients is to assist them in discovering their strengths so they can use them to create the life they most desire. I believe clients move towards growth when time is right. Most clients enter therapy or coaching when they have reached a critical life transition. In our work, we will explore how your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are all connected. As a result of our meetings, you will gain tools to feel better, more confident, and satisfied with your life."

"I have worked with adults and teens for over fifteen years and specialize in helping people live more conscious, meaningful and contented lives. Living in the bay area can be stressful and demanding. Gaining more insight about one's anxiety or dissatisfaction at work; sorting through relational issues such as doubts about the marriage or challenges with a teenager; bringing awareness to coping mechanisms that aren't working anymore (alcohol, eating patterns, internet or shopping compulsion) - these are a few of the ways therapy can help you gain more balance and well-being in your life."

Paradoxically, I believe this is often the time in which the greatest change is possible. By exploring issues through a multi-layered approach, we will identify the deeper truths and lessons these challenges are presenting.

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.
