"I help perfectionists who are always second guessing their self-worth, overworking out of fear what they did is not enough, playing small from fear of taking risks and failing, and living below their potential. This creates a cloud of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm that burns you out and drains your motivation and drive to excel, leaving you feeling stuck. I help you learn how to overcome those mindset blocks and find a healthy balance between always raising the bar and finally enjoying the fruits of your labor. Working with me clients learn how to find lasting joy, not just fleeting happiness, and how to reach their full potential."

"I call my philosophy of therapy psy-chi. When the flow of energy, or chi, which is the life force of all living things, becomes constricted by fear and doubt, we lose our creativity and faith in ourselves. We become depressed or bored and feel disconnected from family, friends, and co-workers, or we become anxious and agitated and start to experience paranoia, or feel that we are not good enough. We lose our confidence; we lose the best part of ourselves. When this negative energy manifests itself the mind and body need to be realigned."

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