"The moment you wake up hopelessness and uncertainty wash over you. You're so tired of feeling like this. It's hard to be sure which choices to make, or exactly what is keeping you so stuck. Maybe it's a recent life event that is causing you to re-evaluate your job, relationship, or values. Maybe you're feeling lost as to what life's purpose is. Thinking about all of these "life" questions only causes you to feel more anxiety and uncertainty around your decisions. You aren't satisfied with how you are currently experiencing life and have a feeling that there is "more" out there, but you have no idea where to start."

"I really enjoy helping people and animals grow and realize their maximum potential. I believe all persons have the capacity for growth and change over a lifetime. Sometimes this involves overcoming past negative experiences that are holding them back. Sometimes this involves identifying sources of joy and fulfillment and figuring out how to include more of these in their life. Sometimes this involves building new skills for improved coping, relationships and communicating. I believe all persons were created to live meaningful, purposeful lives and I really enjoy helping others mold their lives into the kind of life they want to live. I have been helping people in a counseling or pastoral role since 1982. I have worked with many people who have overcome extremely difficult life circumstances. If you are wanting help in overcoming the negative effects of anxiety, depression, lack of purpose, childhood abuse, divorce, loss, stress, a serious medical condition or other situations that are preventing you from living a meaningful life, I would be honored to walk with you on your journey to a meaningful, peaceful life."

"I enjoy working with teenagers and young adults who find themselves stalled in their academic or career development due to anxiety or depression, often exhibited through poor school performance, addiction, or other self-destructive behaviors. I believe there are no bad children, but only disconnected ones. My rewarding work is also with professionals who find themselves burnt-out and stuck in their lives and careers. We often suffer from debilitating anxiety over failure while fearing disconnection from the rest of our families. I support them to regain their confidence and peace in their busy, achievement-driven lives."

"Do you often feel triggered by something your partner does or says? Do you struggle to regularly feel connected to your partner on a deep level, and when you do it’s short-lived? Are misunderstandings common, and it seems like your partner is on a different team? Likely, you want so much to feel understood and supported by your partner, and want to be able to do the same for them - you still love each other! But it’s frustrating and hopeless when you feel like you’ve tried everything and are still so stuck that you wonder if anything will help. You don’t want to be living parallel lives, but sometimes disconnecting is just easier."

"Warmth, supportiveness and professional integrity are three principal values which have guided over 30 years experience in mental health. I have had a longstanding focus on trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociation, addictions to substances (alcohol, drugs and prescription medications) and to self-destructive behavior (anger, the internet, gambling). My emphasis is on providing accurate diagnoses of current psychological problems and addressing those problems with techniques that are research and/or evidence-based. Clients consistently report rapid relief in fewer than 10 sessions; however, many clients pursue further therapy, making dramatically positive and often unexpected changes in their lives."

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