Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

Building resiliency isn't always about overcoming the mountain sized obstacles. Sometimes, its about overcoming the desire to stay in bed all day, or have popcorn for dinner the fifth day in a row, or have just one more drink at the end of the day. Trauma, and its positive counter-part- Resiliency, is within each of us. Cultivating a positive support system and partnership is all about accessing the natural power you hold within yourself. Within each individual, and couple, embracing resiliency is possible. Learn more at www.resiliencyresourcesconsulting.com

We find ourselves traveling down the same roads all the time, same route to work, school, and even family and friends' houses. Sometimes we become so used to the way we are living that change is often difficult to achieve. I believe this is because we are stuck in ways of thinking because we have done it for as long as we can remember. "That's just the way I am." If you are looking to find a new way of doing things because you are unsatisfied or stuck in a rut, I would love to help you navigate change.

I believe people are relational-beings, meaning, we develop and live our lives in relationships with others. When these relationships become distressed, it can lead to a multitude of feelings, such as depression, stress, anxiety and an overall feeling of uneasiness. These are the times when a person may need some guidance and help accessing their personal resources to find more balance in those relationships and in life in general.

That anxious inner voice won’t quiet down, and it’s just so convincing - you're frustrated that you listen to it, but you're scared not to. I mean, what if you ignore it and your worst fears come true? You know it’s irrational, but your anxiety just won’t let your brain believe the truth. You overthink so many things, and your inner dialog is exhausting you.

You love your child and are doing everything you can to help, but every day is a battle. Your kid is hurting and it’s hard to understand why. Why can’t they do any of the things you know would help? Even the simplest interactions end in fighting, crying or shutting down. You’re aching for your child AND you want to shake them. Parenting is hard at the best of times. Parenting an angry, anxious, depressed kid is even harder. Should you empathize? Should you push them? Punish? Your kid says you don’t understand and you’re just making it worse. You feel battered by your kid's big feelings and extreme behavior.

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