You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

I see therapy as a collaboration between you, the patient, and me, the clinician with years of experience helping people achieve their goals. My style is active, exploring patterns developed in childhood which become obstacles to our happiness as adults. I integrate theories such as narrative therapy, where we examine and challenge the different stories we hold that lead to particular feelings, and also mindfulness, which helps us see clearly, into my work. Coping tendencies such as avoidance due to severe anxiety, eating disorders, depressive isolation, impulsive reactivity, can be transformed into healthy patterns with therapy.

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