I specialize in working with couples in crisis. Issues include infidelity, addiction, illness, separation, divorce, parenting and transitions. Typically, the couple initially meets with me for an intensive weekend in Miami Beach away from competing work/home pressures. Couples report that the therapy entails an intensive, carefully managed 48 hour experience. The schedule and process is tailored to each couple's specific needs. The members of the couple should expect to learn about their respective strengths and weaknesses, including destructive behaviors and relevant histories of relational trauma.

Life has many challenging moments and parenting is full of them. Children may struggle with school/academic difficulties, social/emotional problems, relationship issues, difficult transitions (e.g., relocation, divorce or loss) or typical developmental and daily conflicts for which they need support. Though as parents we do our best to create a conflict and stress-free environment for our kids, they will inevitably face obstacles along the way. My approach is to empower children and parents with knowledge and strategies that will help them with the presenting problem as well as other challenging situations that arise in their lives.

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