"You're desperate to feel happy, but the voice inside your head keeps saying you don't deserve it. Bad things have happened to you and you feel hopeless and empty inside. You're confused and overwhelmed by worries, you can't sleep, you're irritable and your relationships are suffering, You've pulled back from friends and family because life just feels too hard and nobody seems to understand. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but it feels like it's never enough. You feel intolerably alone, 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. "

"Sometimes in life we find ourselves "spun" - that feeling where something hits us so hard that we lose our bearings, forget which way is up and down, forward and back, and struggle to simply get back on track. The event could be internal, such as the onset of an illness, depression, anxiety, doubt, grief, or shame. Or the event could be external, like the end of a relationship, an engagement or marriage, the loss of a loved one, the birth of a child, or the achievement of a long-term goal. Whatever the cause, I want to help you remove the roadblocks and get back on the path of your best possible life. "

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Traverse City are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Traverse City you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Traverse City and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Traverse City or family therapy in Traverse City.
