People go to therapy for a multitude of reasons and in response to a multitude of problems, but the primary reason is to feel better~~about situations, about relationships and, of course, about themselves. My job as a therapist is to provide a safe environment in which to explore these problems and help my clients discover and experiment with ways of thinking, feeling and behaving that will help them achieve these goals.

If you are ready to find ways to be your truest self, move through your grief, anxiety, trauma or depressive symptoms either long held or recent, I may be a good fit for you. As a former Naprapath, now therapist, my understanding of the connection between the mind and body has proved powerful to clients trying to understand the inner relationship between these two parts of ourselves. I often hear words like, 'stuck,' 'numb,' 'confused,' 'alone,' 'outsider.' Trying to put words to what ones experience is can be daunting at best. Giving voice to experiences is transforming.

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