Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

Psychotherapy isn't one size fits all. It's a unique relationship that develops and responds to your needs, life-experiences, ethnic/cultural identity, challenges and resources. You may be feeling stuck-repeating painful patterns, wanting to make changes but not knowing how. Or you're a survivor of sexual violence and the ways you've been coping aren't working anymore. I meet you where you are and bring my clinical and life experience, deep listening, compassion, acceptance, warmth and creativity. Together we create and draw on the power of a safe, accepting therapeutic relationship to support your growth and wholeness.

My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

My work is grounded in a relational and body-oriented approach to therapy. I draw on the immense resources of the body-- its rich wisdom to support the cultivation of mindful presence, internal resource, gentle self inquiry/guidance and embodiment. Creating space for you to listen to your voice and inner experience allows for both depth and breath of understanding, as well as authentic expression and acceptance.

Let's be honest: you wouldn't be looking at this profile if everything were going perfectly. These are remarkably stressful times – you might be feeling more anxious or depressed; you might have trouble sleeping; you might find yourself feeling restless or irritable or having relationship difficulties. Any of these experiences (and more) can feel hopeless, overwhelming, or that you're the only one who is suffering – DON'T BELIEVE IT! All of these issues can and do improve, but nobody is born knowing how to do it. It takes skills and support, and like any skill, it takes time, practice, and ongoing support.

I am candid and enjoy *keeping it real* in ways that invite the authenticity and honesty that fuel growth and change. At the same time, I work with sensitive awareness and caring of the many aspects of each individual, of each aspect’s unique needs and desires, and of the need of each to be seen, understood and supported. This approach is the foundation for the collaborative work I do with my clients.

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.
