If your relationships or life circumstances have you feeling stuck, anxious, or depressed, I can help you by providing a safe environment and some guided exploration of your strengths, options, challenges, and needs. I'm very good at helping you determine what is under your power to change and what is something to accept, grieve, and learn to live with. Whether it's a failing relationship, children with disability, or your adolescent has pushed you to the end of your rope, I bring hope, humor and comfort as I walk along side you as you find solutions, peace, and direction.

I strongly believe that we all have a part inside of us that holds our strength and resilience. Sometimes it just takes intentional awareness through therapy to discover that part does exist within us. My mission as a therapist is to provide a safe, compassionate, and understanding space for my clients to heal and grow. As well as, identify negative thoughts and beliefs and create a healthier relationship with those thoughts. Change is possible when we lean into the discomfort and realize we don’t have to do it alone.

The strongest person is the one who knows when to ask for help. Everyone struggles, but why do some people handle life's challenges so well? My goal is to help my clients have a happy and fulfilling life. What this means is clearly different from person to person. My aim is to identify the behaviors that are keeping this from happening, implement these changes, practice them in real life and moving on. I am a short term-solution focused therapist. The more you do outside of therapy, the faster you can achieve the changes you desire.

Many professionals suffer from stress, anxiety, worry, or depression. Despite external success there is internal angst often impacting our daily lives and our relationships with colleagues and loved ones. Although materially successful we find ourselves feeling restless, trapped, or burnt out. I can help professionals who at times experience such feelings find their balance and regain their zest for life. After 15 years in corporate America where I saw highly functional colleagues struggle with stress and worry, I decided to become a Marriage and Family Therapist to serve this clientele to whom I could relate.

I will help you cope with the emotional, physical, and social challenges of handling everyday stress, healing from a traumatic event, living with a medical condition (e.g., chronic pain/headaches, illness), or adjusting to a loved one's illness. I know people are resilient, and I will work with you to keep stress a manageable part of your life, instead of your entire identity.

"Life is difficult. . . a series of problems." Scott Peck wrote in Roadless Traveled. I can't describe it any better, but there are so many possibilities, changes that can happen when you take a step of courage. Therapy is a good way for some self reflection, to face the challenges, accept it and be at a better place. I believe that challenges are opportunities, for growth and strength; you can't do this alone, social psychology says. Let me help, to provide a safe place for connection and empathy to take that step, explore what may be holding you down and how you can be free and to live the best that you can be.

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.

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.
