My roots as a therapist and healer have seeded over the past thirty-five years, bringing substance and depth to my one-on-one sessions with couples and individuals. During this time, I have maintained a private practice, which has always consisted of process-oriented consciousness work -- a means by which to enter safely and deeply into the inner landscape of the psyche for positive and real world change. My results-oriented approach to psychology is derived from the commitment to a conscious process and the intrapsychic relationship one can access when choosing to turn toward--and look at--oneself.

I know that finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. In my practice, I attempt to create a safe, nurturing space where we can actively engage in the process of self discovery together. I am passionate about this work and believe that it does lead to lasting change. I have experience with creative professionals and understand the ups and downs of being an industry professional. During these uncertain times, I have found that tele health offers an unexpected bonus. It seems to provide opportunities to take risks that may not feel as safe when we are face to face. I look forward to our journey together.

Self-acceptance, body positivity; the messages are great in theory. But try as you may, you can't seem to live them yourself. It's painful to feel uncomfortable in your own body; the shame, guilt, and hiding's wearing on you. It's painful to feel not enough, thinking, "If only I could look a certain way, then I'll be seen and loved." Starving, binging, or purging to feel a sense of safety- because you're unable to express your real feelings and needs. You're hurt; looking for acceptance in the wrong places from the wrong people. Secretly thinking “I can’t get out from this vicious cycle of negative relationships, food, & body image.

We all struggle when communicating with our partners from time to time. During lockdown, it may be happening "way too much"! During the shelter-in-place orders, feelings of frustration, fear, sadness, grief, and anger might be starting to build. You might be fighting more, or retreating to your corners and there is an icy chill in the house. Maybe its resentment? If any of these emotions seem familiar, it may be time to reach out for support. I offer in-person and video sessions.

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.
