"If you are going through a difficult season in your life, you do not have to go through it alone. In your therapy journey with me, you will be the driver; you will decide which direction you want our sessions to go. My role as your passenger is to guide you in your path, speak belief into you when you go through those dark tunnels, and challenge you to not take the exit so quickly when you feel tempted to give up. Rest assured, you are not required to be a “good driver” to begin this journey! I strongly believe that as long as you are willing to develop and grow a positive skill set, you will reach your desired destination. "

"Life can be stressful and chaotic sometimes. At times, we have the strength and tools to manage the stressful events in our lives. At other times, the stress begins to take over our lives and we may need extra support. We may start to struggle in our relationships with our loved ones, function poorly at work or at school, or we may stop doing the things that we enjoy. Therapy can be helpful when you need support in getting back on track. As your therapist, I hope to create a space in which you can feel supported, gain additional perspectives, and learn tools to manage the stressors in your life more effectively."

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 Southwest, Portland can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
