My approach is collaborative, ie, we figure out together what's going on and how best to work towards better outcomes. My patients are children, adolescents and their families, couples and adults - young and old. I have a good deal of experience with acting-out behaviors, parenting challenges, depression, anxiety, trauma-based behaviors. While some difficulties can be more skillfully dealt with, I am skeptical that life's problems can be 'resolved' forever and ever. Emotions and thoughts will forever arise, offering endless opportunities to learn different responses, ultimately transforming habitual reactions into conscious responses that work better for us.

Happiness depends on feeling good. It’s hard to feel good when your relationships are struggling, or you feel misunderstood and not seen at work, or by your family or partner. Looking outside of yourself for love or reassurance is a game of chance- it works sometimes, but learning how to source your own self worth is a sure thing. Becoming more aware of your emotions and learning to listen to what they are telling you teaches you how to get what you need both from yourself and from others. With this kind of "emotional fluency" you become a more confident, graceful, happier version of yourself.

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