It's only by renewing our minds that we can transform into being the people that we want to be. We can have the lives that we want. By becoming friends with ourselves and creating a positive internal dialogue you can change your entire life. Right now you are absolutly perfect and loving at your core and always have been. No longer do you have to be confined by your misinterpretations and misperceptions from your past. This takes awareness and time but absolutely can be done with me as your guide. I'd love to work with you!

You are not alone in carrying recurring feelings of helplessness, dread and fear. And since the duration of COVID-19 is unknown, you may be seeking additional support to cope with its undeniable challenges. Most of us struggle to understand and communicate our emotions and experiences effectively, including our children, and especially now. Life during a pandemic is not easy and I commend you for taking this step!

A fundamental sense of wellbeing is our natural state. Having a sense of fear of what is going to happen next is also a part of our nature. Which experience dominates depends on which parts of our mind and nervous system are in the driver's seat, so to speak. We can use this knowledge to improve our relationships, enjoy our lives more, and feel more optimistic about the future by noticing which parts of our selves are in control and help make shift to access the innate wisdom that we all possess.

All of us have those moments in life where we finally "get" something, those times when everything finally makes sense. As a therapist it is a pivotal moment in the therapeutic process, as a parent it can be very rewarding to see this occur for your child, and as an individual, it can be the difference between getting stuck in a bad place and moving forward in your life. I work with individuals, children and couples who are facing life's stressors and are looking for the tools to improve the quality of their lives.

I am a strength-based psychotherapist committed to the unique process of each client and each therapeutic moment. I work with a balanced approach between a solution-focused, positive psychology and the deeper work of existential, psychodynamic or mindfulness-based interventions. I specialize in life and developmental transitions where symptoms such as anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, or triggered trauma increase in intensity and frequency and threaten that which we cherish. But I view the nagging presence and awareness of our problems as proof that we are ready and capable of dealing with them.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Soquel are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Soquel

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Soquel you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Soquel and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Soquel or family therapy in Soquel.
