"I am not your run of the mill therapist. Oh sure, I listen well and am very compassionate and calm. But I just don't sit there and ask you how you feel. I do care about your feelings but I am more curious about your experience and how we can increase your awareness so that you can make helpful and inspired choices. As you can imagine I help people deal with any issue you can possibly think of- from depression to life transitions to the loss of a loved one or trauma."

"Are you plagued by "What if..." thoughts? Feeling fear, worry, imagining the worse? Or consumed by negativity? Such internal self-talk can be debilitating, causing stress. It drives behavior, alters mood, interferes with sleep or appetite. Feeling stuck, unheard or frustrated? Unhappiness isn't permanent. Difficult situations at work, with your health or in your personal life can be navigated. Acceptance of your reality, or health issues, makes a significant difference. Let me help you feel more at peace, learn skillful ways to respond to those thoughts, and let go of the stress. I'll happily get you on a wellness track!"

"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.

"Do you feel tired and overwhelmed? Are you exhausted from bobbing and weaving around the needs of others? Is it difficult for you to ask for and trust in help? While you feel depleted, there is still a spark within, guiding you to focus on your own wellness. Your head is barely above water, yet you are determined to emerge and need help to do so. Perhaps it is time to enter a relationship with a therapist; a collaborator who can journey with you to explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals of self compassion, acceptance and authentic connection to yourself and others.

Focusing on others' imagined thoughts about you can be a problem when it starts to replace your own internal guidance system. Especially if you: Tend to be hypercritical of yourself Hold higher standards for yourself than others, but often feel disappointed by them Regularly find yourself in unhealthy relationships Excel at "helping" others reach goals but feel lost when it comes to your own?

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?
