Those who want to establish a mind/body/spirit connection and have more joy in their lives will benefit the most by working with me. My excitement for counseling and coaching comes from helping people create wellness and balance, while going through life's transitions: adolescence, college, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging, adjusting to losses and dealing with health issues.

"People come for psychotherapy when they are hurting or feeling stuck in unproductive thinking and behavior. This can manifest in depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, issues with career and work performance and self deprecating behaviors. Loss, grief and illnesses can be hard to bear and cause feelings of aloneness. What is often needed is a safe environment for the cultivation of acceptance and compassion and the willingness to wisely explore in a trusting relationship. Developing space to have a new understanding of difficulties can open to greater awareness, sense of possibility and the capacity to live more fully."

Taking steps towards change requires tremendous courage, but many people find the rewards of this process well worth the effort.

Support is my primary role; my secondary role is to help individuals identify thoughts or behaviors that are limiting progress in one's life.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Washington are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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