My clients describe me as warm, compassionate and funny, but also as direct, challenging, and focused; seeking out the hard and stuck places in their approach to living and loving. I don't try to convince my clients that life is easy or carefree, but I do believe lots of happiness and contentment can be found when we face and come to terms with our truths. Unlike many folks offering therapy services, I bring extensive education and training in analytically informed psychotherapy, which I belief enriches and deepens the work.

We all have our own unique stories. Within them lie challenges and obstacles to work with. I liken it to each of us being in the middle of a tornado; in the middle, we can't see clearly everything that's zipping chaotically around us; we just know we're in the thick of it. Therapy helps us be able to step back from the tornado, so that we can see what's actually going on around us. If you are here, then you desire some type of shift in the way life has been operating with you. You might have a clear understanding of the blockage, or you may not yet. Wherever you are in your journey, we will meet where you are and move forward.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Philadelphia are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Philadelphia

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Philadelphia you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Philadelphia and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Philadelphia or family therapy in Philadelphia.
