"You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom."

"I like to think of therapy as the search for balance in one's life. For many, it begins with seeking greater understanding about one's concerns and situation. With that understanding, a new narrative of life's experiences and meaning can be found. The understanding is the first part of change; the rest (which may sometimes be the longer part) is a process of working with self-compassion towards that balance. Although my undergraduate education was in Creative Writing and Fine Arts at the University of Michigan, the most creative process I've encountered has been psychotherapy."

"Welcome! Most people are resilient, most of the time, in facing life's problems. But there comes a time when almost everyone needs help. Stressful life events, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other pressures are sometimes overwhelming. It's a strength to ask for help when you need it. I can help you explore in-depth understanding and insight, or develop strategies to cope with stress and change. Or both. I work with adults with depression, anxiety and panic, work and career issues, relationship issues, ADHD, bipolar disorder, stress management, separation and divorce, grief, traumatic stress, and suicide prevention."

"People often search for a therapist when they feel like they've tried everything and it's just not working well enough. It can be hard to see a situation clearly when you've been immersed in it for so long. I help people to take a step back, so they can see things more objectively. Through psychotherapy, people can find internal strength and resources they didn't know were there. They can then start to see new perspectives, both of themselves and their situations, and can begin to make changes."

"I am not currently able to accept new clients. In therapy, we zoom in and out across multiple layers, sometimes viewing problems through the lens of history and culture. Therapy might examine how relationships and larger systems maintain or reinforce unwanted symptoms and negative views of the self. It may not be your sole responsibility to heal familial or societal wounds--however, changing individual behavior patterns can positively affect the system as a whole. I work well with clients who are socially conscious and critical, who seek to align their behaviors with their values."

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
