I am a licensed clinical psychologist who helps adults, adolescents, and couples understand and cope with difficult feelings and behaviors that are getting in their way. Sometimes we feel inexplicably sad, lonely, withdrawn, defeated, alienated, anxious, or self-defeating. These feelings can impact our lives and relationships in a negative way. By exploring and understanding these feelings and behaviors together, we can begin to work on changing the negative patterns and to restore a sense of connection and engagement.

"Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of up and downs. It's a journey of discovery - there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair"- Rick Warren. We all struggle with past or present situations that can get in the way of us living our lives wholeheartedly and that have an impact on the connection with oneself and others. Whenever you are going through a difficult time and you are confused about what is your next step, connecting with a trained therapist can be very helpful.

I believe the most fundamental aspect of therapy is the relationship between the client and counselor. Growth and change cannot take place without an empathetic, trusting and caring relationship. I work together with my clients to develop a safe, non-judgmental space to explore, understand and work through negative thought patterns, emotions and behaviors that can prevent the happiness and satisfaction with life that we all deserve. Together we will examine and foster your strengths, uncover ways to move past prior painful or traumatic experiences and problem-solve current life stressors to allow you to fully live the life you want.

I believe most psychological pain stems from a disconnection with one’s sense of purpose and meaning. In times of physical and mental stress, we often stray from our values and what brings us joy. Therapy serves as an integrative process that allows for a reconnection with what brings you a sense of meaning. Therapy allows you to heal through feeling heard and understood. My role is to guide you through the tough spots on your journey to help you continue on your desired path.

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