"I have 3 basic beliefs about therapy: 1) You are the expert when it comes to your life and your family; my job is to offer support and strategies during tough times. 2) Children deserve to be treated with patience and respect; at the same time, parents should be allowed to make mistakes, take breaks, and ask for help. 3) I am committed to understanding everyone who walks through my door as a unique individual rather than a problem or diagnosis."

"I look forward to working with individuals that are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and re-balancing their life. There comes a time in all of our lives where we need the compassion and support of a therapist that truly is present and cares. I will offer you a safe space to process and work through your challenges. In my own personal life, I have experienced the loss of my parents and faced cancer twice. I know what it is like to be grieving, very hurt and afraid to move forward. Sometimes it is not only the fear that we have that stops us from moving forward, but we need the tools and support to assist us along our path."

People tell you this as if you don't want to relax, stop overthinking, let things get you upset and worry! If you could, you would! Hearing this from friends and family members doesn't help. In fact, it can make you feel even worse. You have tried to stop on your own but your mind continues to fill up with things that make you stressed out and you have a hard time turning it off.

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