"First of all, I want to congratulate you on making the decision to start therapy. Unlike what some people believe, that going to therapy implies that you are “weak”, the exact opposite is true. Making the decision to actively look at your life and face and overcome the challenges you are facing takes courage and strength! I specialize in working with high-functioning, young adults/adults, and it is a true pleasure to see more and more people who embrace the idea that therapy is a healthy, proactive way to learn to listen to their heart and take steps to make changes and create lives that they will truly enjoy."

You feel competent and secure in many areas of your life but your relationships just never seem to work out and you find that you constantly compare yourself to others. You’ve developed a dialogue in your head that you’re not good enough and that things are destined to be this way forever. But not anymore, a change is long overdue. "

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
