"Finding a therapist is about the "match" as much as about the skill and experience of the clinician. I find that clients who feel the "match" with my work are looking for a practical dialogue about active problem solving, as well as feelings of trust and connection. The journey to find a matching therapist can be frustrating, and I work with clients to identify that early in the process.

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 East Arlington 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 East Arlington or for an East Arlington coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies.
