"I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families experiencing upheavals in life due to transitions, family conflict, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression and stress. My style is direct and interactive, exploring connections between the issues you are facing now and older behaviors and patterns of coping that might no longer be working for you. Our work can also draw on theories and approaches that focus on how interpersonal patterns affect our relationships. Together, we can come to understand and define the goals that will help you move forward. I help you redefine how you look at patterns and set helpful boundaries."

"The goal of therapy is for you be happy in your love and work. At the heart of it, therapy is about increasing your capacity to alleviate your suffering; feel more connected with yourself and others; expand and enrich yourself; recognize what you want; and recognize the internal and external forces that keep you from getting what you want. These are powerful antidotes to anxiety and depression."

"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 Francisco 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 Francisco or for a San Francisco coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include San Francisco coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
