At times we are the worst critics of our own story, or we are too anxious of the unknown to move forward. Wherever you are in your life story, in the most difficult times, I can meet you there. Together we can work towards healing from the past, processing grief, moving towards acceptance, improving relationships and communication, learning new coping skills, or overcoming fear and anxiety.

"A quote by Rumi says, “Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.” All too often, we feel as though we are victims of our own lives and that somehow we are set up for failure. We may feel like we are drowning from the daily stresses of work, school, and family commitments, and the feelings of sheer exhaustion are too much. We have stopped showing up for ourselves, we have given our power away, and we feel as though we are left with little to nothing. These feelings may elicit a host of other mental, physical, and emotional ailments that begin to show up in our lives and we feel like everything is out of control. "

"Our emotions are essential for survival. They can help to keep us safe, motivate us, assist us in making decisions and help us to connect with others. Sometimes, though, our emotions can get complicated and can cause problems in our relationships, causing us to behave in ways we normally wouldn't and increasing disconnection. Maybe you're passionate and expressive, and are looking for strategies to manage your emotions more effectively. Or, perhaps you struggle with knowing your emotions and you want to learn how to identify and express them more effectively. Can you identify with either of these?"

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