"Life satisfaction is directly linked to how we cope with life's challenges. When we participate in escapist behavior (drinking too much, overindulging on sugar, avoiding confrontation, Netflix binges), we can feel stuck and hopeless. We get caught in these painful ways of coping because they work, at least temporarily. I specialize in helping clients get unstuck by incorporating brain-based education and suggestions for change. It's a simple process but hardly easy, which is why I'm here to help."

" I am a psychological assistant with Core Insights Psychological Group, and supervised by Dr. Gregory Gayle. I believe that therapy can be a significant journey of ups, downs, struggle and discovery. It takes courage to willingly step into a therapist’s office to speak with someone about the most challenging aspects of one’s life. Within that therapy space, however, lies the opportunity for immense growth and change. Therefore, I believe it is our responsibility as therapists to serve as support for each person while they determine how to best live their lives in the moment and in the future."

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.
