"As a family therapist for over twenty-five years, I combine various approaches to meet the individual needs of my clients. My style is collaborative and supportive and I'm passionate about what I do. I specialize in two unrelated populations: young people from age thirteen through their mid- twenties, and anyone suffering loss, especially the loss of a pet. Perhaps because I still have vivid memories of my young self, and because the animal-human bond is so strong, these topics have special meaning for me. Subspecialties include trauma and stress management including EMDR, couple's work, and parenting."

Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported 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 San Diego 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 San Diego or for a San Diego coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include San Diego coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in San Diego are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in San Diego you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in San Diego and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in San Diego or family therapy in San Diego.
