"I'm fully empathic with the emotional suffering that comes with being human. I always approach whatever my client comes in with from the perspective that they are right to be having the emotional experience they're having; i.e., there are reasons for it. No judgment. No blame. As I engage in a therapeutic alliance with them, we explore together for understandings and meanings to learn those reasons, which no one can do alone. Through the alliance with me as a trusted professional, my client gains early symptom relief and is fostered in higher functioning through feeling better."

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Winnetka are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Winnetka you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Winnetka and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Winnetka or family therapy in Winnetka.
