We all need support to walk through our lives with purpose, power, and joy. It takes bravery to seek support, so welcome to the threshold of change. I work with children, adults, and families using play-based and trauma-informed therapy to support reflection, growth, and recovery. Together we can address behavioral issues, stressful transitions like divorce, grief, adoption, and birth, and the conflicts of identity. Using evidence-based strategies, I partner with adults, teens, and children across a spectrum of diagnoses and life experiences to remove barriers and build strengths.

If you, or someone you care about, is looking for an alternative to AA and '12-step' programs I encourage you to give me a call. Since the early 1990s I have been offering addictive behavioral counseling based on a sensible and practical cognitive-behavioral approach and SMART® Recovery. I view addictive habits and recovery as learned behaviors/habit patterns. 'Recovery,' stopping the addiction and living comfortably, is something one learns how to do. Stopping addictive habits is a means to an end --increasing satisfaction and enjoyment in one's life and reducing or eliminating self-inflicted discomfort and distress.

My passion centers on the ways in which early relationships, life experiences and cultural contexts shape our worldviews and impact our choices, coping and performance. I also focus on the interplay between the mind and the physical body, and the ways we can use this connection to increase well-being and overall functioning. Over the past 15 years I have worked in various academic medical institutions and hospitals (UCLA, CHLA), using research-based interventions to guide individuals (children, youth and adults), couples and families in working towards agency, personal growth, positive change, insight, and adaptation to life events.

I view my work as helping people find new ways of relating. This includes how we relate to thoughts -- turning the volume down when they're too noisy, or listening carefully for new meaning in whatever you just said out loud. It can include accepting emotions despite having the urge to escape them. And it can include how we relate to people -- learning to speak directly about what we need despite how vulnerable it makes us feel, or choosing to hold back when normally we would rush in and share too much.

Therapy can help clients gain clarity, learn healthy ways to express emotions, and cope with difficult emotions and circumstances. I offer a safe, supportive resource where clients no longer feel alone. Your feelings are valid and deserving of the care and attention that we sometimes fail to place as high priority in our busy lives.

You don't have to struggle alone in your difficulties. You can access encouragement and strength to live well. I offer a safe harbor and secure relationship for you to discuss your needs and problems. I enjoy working with people who feel stuck in negative situations or relationships, but feel puzzled about how to improve or change them. Collaboratively, we solve problems and/or rework the patterns that perpetuate the negative situations. We would explore any contributions of the past to the present so you can detach from the old patterns. Eventually, you will feel freer and more empowered to make desired choices in life.

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. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Durham

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