Negative thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming, and at times even become unbearable. Often they are the root cause of the issues that prompt someone to seek outside help. Using a primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy approach, I help people understand what triggers these feelings and together we work on strategies for managing and reducing them. Therapy is tailored to an individual's specific needs to meet immediate goals, as well as to build tools for long-term balance and well-being.

Life can feel chaotic. Whether you are considering your first time in treatment, continuing or returning to treatment, my goal is to provide you with the platform and skills to effectively evaluate, identify and create solutions to help you. It’s important to remember that therapy is not always about ‘fixing’ a problem. Sometimes, it is about learning how to work with the problem by creating awareness, strengthening insight, developing or broadening skills you already have. It is a joint effort between the therapist and the client, working together, to impact change and bring balance to what may otherwise feel out of control.

Congratulations on addressing your therapeutic concerns. Taking this first step often is a powerful journey toward healing. it is my belief the relationship you have with your therapist is crucial to the rapid resolution of issues. I believe therapy should be a rewarding, hopeful and, whenever possible, brief process. A client's motivation to change and willingness to work is crucial to success. My belief is the combination of insight followed by action is the surest pathway to change. My practice is addressing the barriers clients perceive that stop them from living the life they imagine possible.

IS ANXIETY STEALING YOUR JOY? Do you suffer from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, feelings of loneliness and/or emptiness? Are you struggling with life changes, loss, feelings of hopelessness? Are you fearful about finding/losing love? Do you suffer with feelings of worthlessness or feel incapable of being loved? Healthy connections are a primary need that we all have. Healthy attachments help us regulate our emotions to live a joyful and peaceful life. Sometimes through life experiences, our ability to attach and connect in healthy ways gets disrupted, negatively impacting our lives and our ability to regulate our emotions.

Such experiences are difficult to achieve when you're focused on controlling and managing mental health symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma. My question to you is do want to live your life managing symptoms, or would you rather spend that time and energy on experiences that lead to more zest and vitality? Many people get stuck in life because they think they need to eliminate the anxiety and depression before they can live again. I disagree.

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 and communities, including the BIPOC community in San Diego. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in San Diego
