In today's hectic society, families often struggle to manage responsibilities and maintain satisfying relationships. I work with couples, parents and adolescents on respectful interaction skills using effective communication, conflict resolution, and boundary-setting tools. Many of my clients are teens experiencing anxiety and depression and feeling overwhelmed by school pressures, demanding schedules and relationship issues. I coach young adults to identify and eliminate obstacles blocking their transition into adulthood. We explore values, self-esteem issues, personality traits, interests, and personal and career goals. I challenge my clients of all ages to examine and adjust thoughts and behaviors which are no longer working for them.

People are the center of my practice. While I have a wide range of experience and expertise in various techniques, I always take a person-centered approach to therapy. Every individual is unique, and it is important to treat your symptoms, not simply your diagnosis. Sometimes even the most basic and routine challenges of everyday life can seem complex, unpredictable, or even overwhelming. Whether you are suffering from depression, anxiety, grief, or just going through a difficult transition, my goal is to foster a trusting, safe, and confidential environment for you to heal and grow.

Trauma, addiction, and loss can disrupt one's life - and often require professional help. Together, we can process the fueling factors of addiction, emotional pain, or relationship issues. I feel very blessed to bear witness to change and transformation in others (and myself!) everyday through my work. While many therapists claim to be 'trauma-informed', my practice, the Phoenix Center for Experiential Trauma Therapy, revolves entirely around trauma work. I've been recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress - the highest status in the academy.

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