Are you a student athlete who desires to do well on & off the field? You can likely relate to this unique student athlete challenge: You’re a student of the game AND you’re a full-time academic student. You're putting in the work on the field and in the classroom. Adding to this, you're facing the unexpected challenges of 2020. It can be unsettling. Everything seems a little up in the air. Season postponed, COVID testing, not getting the playing time you expected, adjusting to new teammates/coaching styles or generally feeling stuck in your head. You may be facing some challenges, but you've got grit. You're a goal getter.

Change is an inevitable part of life. Transitions are as natural as night and day. In nature we observe times when things move slowly without visable change - and then suddenly acceleration occurs followed by a transformation. I am a therapist/professional counselor who works with individuals ranging from childhood through late adulthood, couples, and families to assist them in finding personal growth, and work confidently through the natural transitions life brings. I recognize each client as unique and direct my counseling to the whole person; which attends to the body, mind, and spirit of each.

I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option.

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