"Having started working as a therapist 15 years ago, I continue to feel grateful to join clients on their pathway to healing. I believe that a relaxed, interactive, non-judgemental, and empathic style leads to the most successful therapeutic outcomes. I often use a mix of cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, insight oriented therapy, and psychodynamic concepts. I find that a collaborative, team approach focused on solutions to the pain or discomfort in the "here and now" encourages emotional growth. I work with individuals 18 and older. In the past I have worked in geropsychiatry as well."

""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.

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 Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth or for a Portsmouth coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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