*Accepting new clients* Your mind is filled with thoughts of worry or fear, your body reacts with uncomfortable sensations, and you want to avoid or escape situations. You often feel sad and don’t understand why, or how to feel relief. You avoid activities that could be enjoyable, which affect your relationships and social life. You lack the motivation or energy for daily tasks that used to be automatic. Maybe you experienced a horrible event, or a painful, stressful period in your life and you believe your life is forever changed. If you experienced this struggle prior to Covid-19, your feelings are likely heightened right now.

I avoid taking an “expert” stance; flexibility is important and sometimes “one size does not fit all.” I orient toward making room for empathy and unconditional positive regard in the client/therapist relationship. I also believe in supportively challenging client “stuck points” that may be getting in the way of lasting change.

I spent 19 years of my life serving the public as a peace officer, first as police and then 10 years as an undercover narcotics detective. Trauma, critical incidents, emotions. I told myself I had to be strong and deal with it. Because of the stigma and belief that asking for help was a sign of weakness I resorted to unhealthy coping mechanisms that subsequently resulted in the loss of everything I once had passion for. It took me losing it all before I got help. 8 years ago I began my new life in recovery and found a way out. If you have the courage to raise you hand now you won't have to suffer in silence any longer.

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.
