Therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply and genuinely with yourself in a way that translates to deeper connections with others in your life. It is also an opportunity to make changes in your life, get support during a difficult time, work on relationships with family, friends or romantic partners, or heal from a deep loss. I offer therapy which is collaborative, active and respectful. I listen attentively, ask questions, offer observations, develop strategies and give feedback with warmth, empathy and a lack of judgement.

Are you retiring and don't know what's next? Maybe you are leaving, starting, or struggling in a relationship and want to do it "right" this time. All Transitions have stages we need to address. Our past experiences create our lenses of fear or excitement about the future. Knowing your old patterns will help you to create the life YOU want now.

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 Durham 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 Durham or for a Durham coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Durham 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 Durham are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Durham. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Durham
