I am a cognitively oriented therapist. That is a fancy way to say I pay a lot of attention to your thoughts. There are only three things in the universe you can control: your thoughts, your feelings, and your behaviors. It is your thoughts that drive your feelings and behaviors. The better you manage your thoughts, the better you manage your emotions and your life.

Change comes, sometimes dramatically, leaving us unsure of the next step. These changes and the impact they have on our mind, body and spirit can often feel insurmountable. Loss, grief, pain, change, none of these come with a manual. These are times in life when having someone to walk with you in the most challenging parts of the journey can be a source of comfort and strength. This belief, that we need each other at different points along the path, a guide, a light bearer in the darker days is what drives my practice. My focus is to work with you to determine what your health and healing goals are and how they can be reached.

I believe that, despite our differences, we all want the same thing in life....to be happy. We have our own definitions of what that means, but many common elements appear across the spectrum. I love being able to guide the process of discovery with my clients, to help identify where their attention is best spent. I believe we all have the innate wisdom to make sound decisions for ourselves but sometimes are too close to the situation to be able to trust our instincts. I see therapy as an opportunity to explore options, and ask new challenging questions.

Life can be full of surprises, not all of them happy. There may be times when, quite out of the blue, you feel anxious, depressed, or just plain stuck. Even in the midst of personal, financial and professional success, you might still find you are struggling emotionally, interiorly questioning, wondering whether all the energy and time you have put into your life is really paying off. Often, you may not know what exactly is troubling you and yet feel quite certain that something is not quite right inside. When it feels this way, therapy can help.

I believe therapy is the process of getting to know and like yourself better. By looking inward, we discover how we support or undermine ourselves with thoughts, feelings, habitual body patterns and behaviors born out of pain and trauma. We start to distinguish our authentic self from who we think we need to be. When we have more information about ourself and more freedom to be authentic, we can then begin to make changes to better support ourself and create a life that is fulfilling.

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 Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh or for a Pittsburgh coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Pittsburgh

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