"I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive."

"The people I work with are mostly struggling with their depression, anxiety (including panic attacks), anger or pain often accompanied by other medical conditions and/or history of substance use. They may have conflicted relationship or fear of intimacy with partner, family, friends or co-workers on the job. They are doing their best but struggling to build their lives that are stable, meaningful and enjoyable. They often come when they are facing new challenges of life and feeling overwhelmed; and after having tried helping themselves and having sought out the help from their friends, family and/or other professionals."

""I'm not enough" - smart enough, attractive enough, successful enough, popular enough, loved enough, or happy enough. Have you ever had these thoughts? Sometimes our stories are full of shame and scarcity. We feel unworthy, but don't understand where these feelings come from, what drives them, and how to let them go. Therapy is a process of uncovering underlying issues and finding practical ways to provoke change. I will walk alongside you in your loneliness, challenge, or fear, and help you safely overcome struggles."

"You have recognized that your sexual thoughts and behaviors are out of control, or you have discovered that your partner is compulsively using sex or pornography. You are likely feeling shame for your actions or deeply hurt and betrayed by your partner's actions, which is completely understandable. Seeking counseling can be a scary decision, so many avoid it until things get worse. Asking for help can be overwhelming, and it takes courage to reach out for support.

"I was a middle school teacher for ten years. I enjoyed working with children and adolescents more than I did grading papers. I became a psychologist to help children and their families live healthier, more productive lives. I approach psychotherapy first from the perspective that insight into oneself provides then the power to choose and to change. If you don't understand what is going on, you are unlikely to make changes. Secondly, the power to change is enhanced by learning and applying better coping skills. Insight and tools provide a growth experience."

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
