Having practiced for more than 40 years in NYC, and now in White Plains, NY and Stamford, CT, I work primarily with patients suffering from panic attacks and/or other anxiety disorders and depression. These are highly treatable conditions and I see fairly rapid progress. I also teach assertiveness and communication skills to enhance relationships. Being successfully married for 47 years, I bring a wealth of personal experience to couples counseling. Therapy is centered on giving people the tools they need to move on and enjoy their lives. I prefer face to face sessions, but also do phone sessions and/or video sessions when needed.

In life, everyone has struggles. Challenges that make us feel stuck. We may have feelings of anxiety, depression or indecisiveness causing us to feel out of balance. We may not understand why we feel how we do, but we know that something is keeping us from our full potential. I use a variety of treatment approaches in my practice, as there is no “one size fits all.” I will meet you where you are in your journey and together we will navigate the path to your best you. Throughout my years of practice, I have worked with a variety of populations, including children, adolescents and adults.

I view therapy as a collaboration between patient and therapist. We are a team with a common objective. When you come in, we will first complete a thorough intake, and then put together a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. During therapy you will learn skills and techniques which you will practice in between sessions, and implement in your everyday life. I believe that if people understand what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how it is going to help them, then they are more likely to engage in treatment, and benefit more from therapy. When you are ready to end therapy, you will take these skills with you.

I realize that the decision to begin therapy is not always an easy one and what happens in therapy can be difficult to put into words. Put simply, therapy is about letting your voice be heard. You can reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in the presence of someone who will listen in a non-judgmental way. My expectations of my clients are simple - that they attend their scheduled sessions and that they are honest. In return, I will be an attentive and emotionally present ally, helping you learn more effective ways to approach daily struggles.

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