"I believe that the work of therapy is about developing a healthy relationship with oneself and with other people in the community in order to live a happy and meaningful life. It is about finding ways to live in balance and with integrity in what can be a complicated and difficult world that does not always make that easy. Often times we need a "tune up" in handling our emotions and developing better coping skills to approach new or different circumstances in life. This is what therapy is all about. Its creating an experience that enables you to be comfortable sharing in order to grow."

Anxiety causes us to over-estimate a threat and under-estimate our ability. Some of the safety behaviors we use only re-inforce anxiety creating a vicious cycle of: anxiety, avoidance, more anxiety. I can help you break the chain of anxiety.

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