Are you struggling to overcome your past? Do you find yourself feeling stuck and disconnected in your every day life? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive patterns yet unsure how to change? Whether you struggle with managing your emotions or your behaviors, people have an incredible ability to rise above their challenges and achieve healing and connection with the life they want. I believe in the transformational ability of therapy to overcome past events and present obstacles both in ourselves and our life to find new strength, resolve and meaning. I believe the road to healing is illuminated through self-discovery.

Many of us undergo difficult, painful, and traumatic events in our lives – things that are not only painful while we experience them, but that have a way of sticking to us long after the fact. When the residual impact of these events follows us around, it can create a lot of fear and discomfort, making us lose touch with who we really are. This often manifests in feeling stuck in unwanted patterns of behavior, difficult feelings, and negative beliefs about ourselves. These things can be very hard to deal with when other people don’t understand. I specialize in understanding these issues and how they affect us.

Therapy is a journey toward self discovery, self realization, growth and change. Many people find themselves struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, anxiety, fear and depression. They create inaccurate beliefs about themselves based on false and negative thoughts. The secret to building positive self-esteem is to learn to see the whole you not just your mistakes, failures or imperfections. "To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance" Oscar Wilde

As a therapist, I gained extensive experience in issues people struggle with daily including trauma; depression/anxiety; addictions; relational; and interpersonal (self- worth/belief; negative and conditioned thoughts). When individuals attain self-betterment skills, they become empowered to change their lives. With change, decisions become less fear-based, stress becomes manageable, and a more peaceful, fulfilling existence is created. For nothing can change unless you decide to change it. Life goals are reached when individuals connect and form a supportive client/therapist relationship. I am passionate about helping people and getting them to a place of both internal and peace.

The work is to help us all clear the distortions so we can return to who we are: awake, kind, free. I am an EMDR therapist and trainer. I also use a lot of Buddhist Psychology in my work, working to understand the nature of satisfaction and dissatisfaction as well as the nature of self. I teach/coach meditation as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, which is about living life fully, from what we truly value rather than being caught up in our minds.

Everyone faces difficulties in life. These difficulties can be experienced as disappointment, challenge, adversity, or trauma. People cope with their struggles the best that they can with the resources they have available. When these difficult situations cause a person to have problems functioning, attaining their goals, or feeling satisfied with their life it can be helpful to work with a professional mental health therapist. This can help by having someone to talk with about their difficulties, especially if it is something traumatic that they struggle to share with other people in their 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 Amherst 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 Amherst or for an Amherst coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Amherst coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
