Resentment, feeling stuck, restlessness, and anger - these painful emotions are indicators that it's time to make a change. The feelings we want relief from are deeply potent messengers that we are not living in our truth or purpose. You may already be aware of the need for change - feeling devalued in your relationships or in your career, feeling stuck in behaviors like drinking, over-eating, or numbing out with TV or social media - but the path out is unclear. It's possible to experience our emotions, set-backs, and struggles without feeling completely defeated, less-than, or unworthy.

Life is hard enough under normal circumstances, but especially so when we experience emotional pain stemming from unresolved issues from our past. Profound sadness, loneliness, isolation, alienation, anger, shame, and feeling misunderstood, abused, or neglected are some of the common distress signals that bring people into therapy. It can make all the difference to talk about whatever difficult thoughts, feelings, and past experiences you bring to the table, in an environment that is safe, non-judgmental, exploratory, and confidential.

Speaking as someone who has experienced many of the same situations and feelings that relate to substance abuse and recovery, it is second nature for me to empathize with those suffering from consequences of alcohol and other drugs. My experiences working in addiction treatment and mental health have provided me the ability to work with just about anybody. I am comfortable with those who know that something is not working and are considering how to change, so they can ultimately function better. It can be frustrating to feel and behave a certain way, knowing that you have or can be better at living.

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).
