From the outside things look like they are going well, but inside you feel stuck and want to shut yourself off from the world. Maybe life seems to have sped up due to the demands of family, work or school. This is far too common and can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Somehow, we end up in our own way and things become overwhelming. The good news is we can also get out of our way. You have already taken an important first step and are considering psychotherapy. Now, imagine yourself being inspired, better able to cope and capable of embracing all that life has to offer. This is where I will help.

Can talking about your problems really make things better? Well, sometimes a thoughtful structured approach to life's challenges can be very helpful. But sometimes talking just doesn't seem to make our lives different. When we go through something challenging, upsetting, or overwhelming, our bodies are involved in the response. This means to resolve the issue, our bodies need to be involved in addressing the solution.

Endlessly scrolling through therapist’s profiles can be frustrating and confusing, I get it! So, let me tell you what I am looking for in a client. I am looking for a client who would benefit from a safe space to discuss and process their emotions. A client who would like to improve their overall mental health by learning new positive coping skills and wouldn’t mind completing therapeutic homework outside of session. My client would benefit from processing past traumatic events and learn how those experiences impact their current 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 Toms River 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 Toms River or for a Toms River coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Toms River coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
