"Life is all about finding that balance between what we can control and what we can't. Faith can play a large roll in this. I am a life-long Catholic in my second year of deaconate training. However, we only discuss faith if you want to. I have helped many people with little or no faith. I would be happy to listen to you and help you find that balance. Depression is often due to unresolved past issues encroaching in the present, while anxiety draws future events into the here and now. Both decrease enjoyment of the moment, the place where we live our lives."

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
