I began a search over 20 years ago that allowed me to experience healing in ways that honor the entire human being -not just the mind. My approach is one that honors each client's strengths and path towards wholeness. I empower clients towards their own self-healing. My work is integrative - utilizing mindfulness and inviting the soul/spirit, mind & body to drive the process of therapy. I specialize in non-pathologizing therapies. I strive to create an atmosphere of safety first and foremost. I feel that spirituality is an integral part of the healing process.

With over 30 years of experience, I subscribe to a solution-focus philosophy, in which I strive to address the problem as quickly as possible, but with enough depth to avoid relapse. I set goals early in treatment with adults and couples, or with children/teenagers and their families, so we can find successful solutions and change behavior problems, emotional difficulties, academic difficulties, or family problems as soon as possible. I love people and people's stories, and am always truly and deeply interested in the story of every child, teen, and adult I meet. I also think laughter is therapeutic and therapy can be fun.

At one point you felt optimistic about life then out of nowhere you were triggered by a memory from the past which led to your downward spiral of emotions. Now you are questioning your life's purpose and reason for existence. Or perhaps confused as to why you have experienced certain encounters leading you to feelings of stress, distant behavior, agitation, or perhaps hopeless.

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.
