Listening defines my approach to your treatment. A major difference in working with a psychoanalyst as opposed to other mental health practitioners is the careful, consistent, deep attention a psychoanalyst gives to listening. Change can occur because the first emphasis of this treatment is understanding, rather than feeling pressured to "do" something. Psychoanalysts develop this skill by engaging in extensive institute training beyond that required for their license. My goal is for you to achieve substantive, durable change through a collaborative approach to understanding the deeper meanings and causes of problems you face.

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 Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn or for a Brooklyn coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Brooklyn 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 Brooklyn are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Brooklyn. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Brooklyn

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