A good connection to your therapist is often the most important ingredient to successful therapy. Choosing a therapist you can relate to is essential. My working style is collaborative and direct. I pay particular attention to how my clients are conceptualizing their conflicts (both internal and external), their relationships, and their history.

I cannot move mountains for you, but I can help you climb. Facing fears, healing from loss, finding meaning and joy - these are the inevitable tasks of life. Therapy may be your first step or your last resort. Often people avoid it all together because they believe their pain is too great, worry they will be judged or that their situation is too complicated. Some people believe they should solve problems on their own or with family and friends. Everyone needs help sometimes. While family and friends may want the best for us, they often come with opinions and past hurts.

Are you making it through the day, looking to the rest of the world as if you're doing just fine, but deep down inside you feel stuck and uninspired? Do you wonder what is holding you back from thriving in the world? In our hectic world we often find ourselves afraid to take risks that could jeopardize the stable lives we've created for ourselves. We remain in jobs, relationships and old patterns that no longer work, while symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger and self-defeating patterns keep us from making real changes to our lives.

Choosing a psychotherapist can feel daunting. People often enter therapy during times of vulnerability. At a time when you are potentially feeling overwhelmed with stress, anxiety, anger, sadness, or depression it can be challenging to trust a stranger with all these feelings and intimate details about your life. I view my role as a therapist as being able to fully understand your experience and to use that understanding to help you think through situations that have become increasingly challenging. I believe in creating a safe space for my clients, and working collaboratively in order to help you regain a sense of strength, confidence, and control.

I initially specialized in treating PTSD, and trauma therapy continues to be one of my main passions. I have a diverse experience with a wide range of mental health/neurological disorders but more importantly, an ideal patient would be one who is open and willing to process difficult topics and memories as opposed to continuing to engage in avoidance (a short term bandage for a long term injury). I describe my style as collaborative, directive, and solution oriented, but also find power in allowing clients to process deep rooted issues in a non-judgmental way.

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.
