"My patients often face crises in their relationships with their wives and husbands and/or their children, friends or employers so seek advice about how to manage that turmoil. Some feel abandoned and alone. Others believe friend and family have harmed or limited them. Many feel regret about how they have engaged with others but many also feel abandoned and depressed, anxious and filled with turmoil and confusion. I listen intently with deep compassion for each of them. I do all I can to help them survive but then find a way to a life with joy and satisfaction, friendship and love, peace and serenity."

"Getting up and facing another day can be a real challenge. This is especially true when dealing with a recent loss, facing a crisis, or the broader issue of: Is my life worth living? The challenges can be overwhelming, and we can feel that our abilities are not up to the task. Research shows stress is a major factor in difficulty resulting in depression and anxiety. I address these realities which can be the beginning of change. I have assisted individuals with life pressing issues for many years. Relief and growth is a possibility when the dilemmas are shared with an older experienced therapist."

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 Topeka 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 Topeka or for a Topeka coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Topeka 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 Topeka are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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