Everything changes, but the feeling of change. It can be hard to find the way on your own. Everyone can use a little extra support now and then. Especially if you have recently gone through a significant change in your life or you are anticipating one. By successfully working through these changes, you will not only find your way, but you will gain coping skills for future change.

Life can be busy, hectic and non-stop. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some space and time set aside just for you? To breathe, slow down and reconnect with yourself and your own needs. In these moments of pause, a wellspring becomes available to support you in regaining balance between your mind, body and soul and to help you become the best version of yourself - one that can experience peace and stillness, even in the middle of a storm. This is why I strive to create a therapeutic environment where you can be your authentic self, and feel safe in order to heal and grow.

I have an integrative approach to treating individuals and I focus on compassionate self-acceptance, somatic education and mindfulness in the process of healing. I find worth in learning the language of our nervous system in order to identify our needs in the process of self regulation. We have the tendency to create poor habits to protect ourselves from pain which inevitably exacerbate unwanted mental health symptoms. Clients have mentioned that they appreciate my humor as part of the therapeutic process. It is important that the therapeutic relationship is the right fit for you in your journey to maintain balance and health.

Being 60+ and a hospice volunteer has heightened my sensitivity to the issues of aging well. My belief is that people are inherently resilient, and therefore capable of seeing the past in a way that can benefit the future. The therapeutic process is a blend of science and art, parallel to life, a journey (with frequent benchmarks) rather than a destination.

"Liminality" refers to the middle stage of change, the threshhold between what was, and what is yet to be. It is when, and where, we are forced by circumstance or choice to leave behind what is familiar, and to journey into a place of uncertainty. It is a normal part of being human. I named my practice Liminal Therapy to honor the process of change and human resilience. My clients are adults (18+) and include people with ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma, addictions, and issues related to the stressors of life stages and transitions. Diversity and multicultural wisdom traditions are welcome and appreciated.

I have learned that when children are dealing with difficult feelings or adjusting to life changes, it is often hard for them to put their experiences into words. Instead, they show us with their behaviors. I enjoy helping children with a variety of issues find ways to express themselves through the art of play, storytelling, and other creative processes.

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