"You smile and say, “I’m fine.” You’re seen as the one who has it together but inside, you're constantly over-thinking, over-analyzing, what-if-ing, and should-having. You exceed expectations while at the same time wondering if you are good enough. Impostor syndrome is like a shadow following you around. You’re a pro at turning any situation into a worst-case scenario. Guilt? Yep. You're no stranger to self-blame. Deep breaths take effort. In your relationships, you burst out in anger at those close to you. The aftermath leaves feelings of guilt and shame for not living up to the high expectations you have for yourself."

"Psychotherapy is a journey of discovery. It is a walk toward the self. The purpose of psychotherapy is to assist the patient with knowing the Self: their intrinsic goodness, wisdom and strength found within. For women and couples, this requires a setting aside of assumptions about the self and others in order for curiosity to emerge. In psychotherapy, we explore what brings meaning to life and what creates value. We ask, “Do my actions bring me closer to the person I want to be?” As I assist the patient with shoring up coping skills we also explore the wondrous road back to the Self. "

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 Pacific Palisades 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 Pacific Palisades or for a Pacific Palisades coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Pacific Palisades coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
