"Raising a child can be exhausting. You’re hearing feedback from their school, other parents, and family members on what you could be doing differently. On top of that, you are juggling responsibilities within your home, career, and family. You feel alone, burnt out, unsure of who to ask for help from without feeling judged. You want to believe that the things you are doing for your child are helping them to become the adults you envision them to be. In therapy, we can work together to identify challenges and create an environment that allows you and your child to succeed in a variety of settings."

"Tired of being told to "relax", "stop overthinking", "you are too sensitive" and "you worry too much"? 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. You are not alone! I get it and can completely relate! That is why I love helping people find relief. "

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.

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