"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."

"We live in a world where we are constantly pulled in what feels like a thousand directions at once. We have families, children, careers, appointments, bills and endless responsibilities. With those responsibilities comes with what often feels like impossible expectations. We live in a world where not only do we have to do it all, but we have to be perfect while we do it. The reality is that we can't do it all, and we certainly can't do it perfectly! Yet, here we are, running ourselves into the ground. Does this sound like you? Does this sound like someone you love? If so, I can help. "

"Do your thoughts create more layers of emotional pain? Is it difficult to create space for your feelings? We all feel alone and unsafe at times. Mindfulness practices have the potential to help us create a wise, compassionate container for anxiety, depression and addictive tendencies. When we become aware to present moment experience (with curiosity and compassion), we can find creative ways to find healing, and create relief from the thought patterns and emotional pain that keeps us stuck. I will help guide you to change habits, release identification with thoughts, and find freedom, empowerment and joy in your life. "

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.
