As we get older and become more successful, it becomes harder to just "figure things out", while also staying true to ourselves.

"Anxiety sucks. It can keep us stuck in an exhausting inner battle of fear and panic. Perhaps you have had a panic attack and worry about having another one. Or maybe you find yourself frequently worrying about your relationship with your partner. Obsessive thoughts might be keeping you up at night and disrupting your ability to focus at work. And you might feel shame or embarrassment that you can't get your anxiety under control. It can feel like you are in a tug-of-war battle with your fears and worries. The more you try to fight and control your anxiety, the worse it gets. The good news is, it does not have to be this way."

I approach clinical practice with the belief that personal development and larger social change go hand in hand and that bringing about social justice necessitates that we transform as individuals, communities, and societies.

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?
