"Attachment theory is grounded in the belief that we need connection with others as a means of survival. When we feel disconnected from the people that are most important to us, or endure trauma, our brain signals distress. We can experience a variety of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, loss of sleep/appetite, behavior changes, etc. Repairing disconnections or processing trauma renews our sense of security and helps alleviate additional physical, mental, behavioral or environmental stressors. I am dedicated to helping you through this journey so you can be the best version of you."

" I specialize in guiding women to step into their power to create lives of authenticity, joy, and purpose. I believe that the experiences of all women are sacred. When women gain the tools to heal themselves, engage life from a place of worthiness, and awaken to their full creative potential, we have the power to transform the world. Sometimes in life we encounter experiences that obscure our potential to thrive and cause us to feel stuck or helpless in a sense of suffering."

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "

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.
