"Life is difficult. . . a series of problems." Scott Peck wrote in Roadless Traveled. I can't describe it any better, but there are so many possibilities, changes that can happen when you take a step of courage. Therapy is a good way for some self reflection, to face the challenges, accept it and be at a better place. I believe that challenges are opportunities, for growth and strength; you can't do this alone, social psychology says. Let me help, to provide a safe place for connection and empathy to take that step, explore what may be holding you down and how you can be free and to live the best that you can be.

No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and feeling stuck or confused about next steps in life. No matter the season of life you are in, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and the combined power of your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.

So many of us have been conditioned to equate strength with a lack of emotional vulnerability. Consider, for instance, how many times you may have heard someone referred to as “strong” because they “held it together” and were not seen crying after a loss. This “strength” has helped many of us survive in a lot of ways, but this same survival instinct can keep us trapped. Trapped in our pain, suffering in silence. Trapped surviving life, rather than truly fully living. If you are ready to break this cycle and begin the pursuit of a full, healthy, balanced life-- I would love to speak with you.

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 Kearny Mesa, San Diego can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
