Therapy could be a scary place at first. The process of exploring ourselves could be full of surprises - yet the connections in the therapy room create safety, empowerment and strength.It is not about how the therapist helps you, it is about how you can help yourself along with the insight, reliance and empathy that is already in you.

A single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning. My intention is that together we reach this moment so you, your child, your family can bridge the gap to where you want to be. Change will not occur until you are truly ready to enter this process. Change must be internally motivated for it to last. Together we can build that motivation and readiness that may exist now as only a spark. After receiving my Masters in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University, I began practicing at the YWCA, a shelter for homeless women, children and families.

You seem fine on the outside, but inside you feel you are not good enough, a failure, never enough. You want to be able to go through the day without feeling anxious, overwhelmed, depressed or all on your own. You're your own worst critic. You don't want to need alcohol or pot or comfort food to cope. You want to be able to handle your emotions better. You're wondering if life will ever get better, or if this is as good as it gets. Deep down, you feel guilty or ashamed. Social events may be difficult for you. Maybe you've been through a trauma (abuse, car accident, relationship breakup, etc.) and are having trouble moving on.

Sometimes, the more you try to hold it together on the outside, the more you fall apart on the inside. If you are overworked, anxious, depressed, or broken down from a tragedy or stress, you're probably striving to get back on your feet, catch your breath and regain control over your life to find peace and balance again. It happens to all of us and even the strongest can get knocked down. It's not a weakness to ask for help, but the greatest sign of courage.

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).
