Infertility affects every relationship. Your sense of belonging shifts, hopes and dreams are distorted. Holidays and birthdays are rough. Every menstrual cycle is a loss and veins ache from too many blood draws. Medical procedures are traumatic, expensive and emotionally draining. It's difficult to concentrate, be around children and families and your sense of being healthy is altered. Everyone else is getting pregnant and having babies; and you fear the clock is running out. You are not alone! I am compassionately dedicated to counseling women struggling with this life-changing experience.

You've talked many times about what’s been troubling you. You’ve wondered where to go to get help?And while you may have resisted that idea at first, you know you need help now. Figuring your life or relationship out on your own and consulting others doesn’t necessarily leave you wanting to take their advice, only trying to figure out the root of your differences, adding more frustration. The stress of it all leaves you wanting to tap out of the conversation, approaching your limit. You just want to scream, but you’re trying to hide the fact that you’re in so much pain. Today you thought to yourself, “I’m ready” to start living.

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

Finding the right therapist from a website is difficult, which is why I offer phone or in-person consultations. It takes courage to address challenges such as relationships, personal problems, or general unhappiness. Your success in treatment will depend on your readiness to open up and my authentic presence that will help create a safe space for you. Together we will work on identifying, experiencing and expanding your capacity to tolerate all ranges of feelings. You will become more conscious of your limiting patterns while developing healthy ones as your sense of a genuine and stronger self emerges.

I am a wounded healer! I bring my own lifetime of suffering, healing, and rediscovering my own inherent Belovedness, goodness and power to those I journey with as a therapist. My own journey, coupled with 28 years of clinical experience has taught me that our symptoms, coping behaviors, and relational challenges all reflect something of our struggle to love and be loved. Created by love, for love, to love, when our basic need for a sense of our belovedness wasn't adequately nourished in early childhood, our disordered states and destructive patterns show up to call us back to Love.

When we find ourselves feeling burdened or "blocked", or when a certain satisfaction in life seems out of reach, it is often difficult to understand why things aren't clearer to us, or why we can't simply make the changes we want. The truth is, for all of us there is much that goes on in our psyches which eludes our awareness, but which nonetheless informs how we think, how we feel, and even how we act. So the question becomes, how can we open a window into those pockets of our inner world which somehow keep us stymied.

Yet they may have found themselves feeling chronically depressed, anxious, or lost in life, and they might struggle with long-term patterns in their lives and relationships that they just can’t seem to change. Perhaps they have struggled with trauma or other experiences, thoughts, and feelings they fear nobody would understand. I enjoy working with people who desire not just new insights into their mind, but also a new way of experiencing themselves and others.

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?
