When we look closely at our lives, we find patterns-- some that are positive and some that are negative. It is helpful to examine distressing patterns so that they do not impact present and future relationships. We all face challenging times of trial, but it is so important to seek help. If you find yourself wanting to grow, heal, and develop coping skills to impact your future, I would love to come alongside and collaborate on setting goals for healing.

Food can be associated with love, family, and joy. Other times, food is associated with anxiety, frustration, depression, boredom, self-doubt and other negative emotions. If eating is constantly on your mind, if others encourage you to "stop obsessing over food," or if you believe your desire to eat is based on emotions rather than conquering hunger then I strongly believe we can work as a team to get your life back on track.

Some challenges call for learning new coping skills, while others require a deeper awareness and processing of what's happening.
As a Cognitive Behavioral therapist and a photographer, I use my own curiosity to cultivate self-curiosity in others. I think what keeps us stuck or disconnected, depressed or anxious, or just feeling "off" are our blindspots and the stories we have about ourselves, others, and the world. Our stories influence how we feel and how we behave. Psychotherapy (and photography) can challenge those stories, providing us with new perspectives where emotional and behavioral change can then happen.

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