Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Life can be diffcult; talking can help. My goal is to help a person, within the context of safety and confidentiality, confront the issues which burden a person. At times this may involve talking about our past. At other times counseling may involve learning new skills and discovering new ways to deal with situations in a way that is healthy. Sometimes the process of counseling involves discomfort and can be challenging. What I provide is a listening ear and a willingness to walk with the client on the journey of life. Counseling is a positive step.

If your marriage has too much conflict, too little togetherness, or it just feels like you've gone in different directions, I can help you get back on the track you want to be on. Some times the patterns that are developed in marriage need a little jolt in order to shift onto a better path. Working on these issues with practical tools in the context of your life in Christ gives you resources that are unavailable simply working on these things yourselves. If you are an individual struggling with anxiety or depression or relational problems, I can also help you with a plan and tools to handle life more effectively.

Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back. You grieve for the person you used to be and find it hard to imagine yourself living a worthwhile life with this illness trying to drag you down every chance it gets.

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