Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

Working with clients from all kinds of cultural and ethnic backgrounds is something I love doing. My first private practice was in Vienna, Ausria where I received referrals from the United Nations. My passion is in assisting with transformation. I custom-fit your sessions to what works best for you. When I experienced therapy as a client it involved much suffering; therefore I made a commitment to make therapy as comfortable, fun (laughter is a great healer) and as easy and efficient as possible. I think "out of the box" and work well intuitively.

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

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