"Thank you for your interest in my practice. Choosing the right therapist for you or one of your loved ones is an important decision. In fact, research has demonstrated that which therapist you work with matters far more than the techniques or approach he or she employs. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents who are dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance abuse, eating disorders, grief/loss, as well as general life difficulties. I am grateful for the opportunity to help the people I work with."

"I believe we all do our very best to cope with life’s challenges. Allowing someone to face those challenges with you can be one of the hardest aspects of starting psychotherapy. I approach therapy as a partner in exploration and discovery. I work toward creating a safe, warm environment that facilitates connection, understanding, and positive change. Every person is unique and so are their strengths, struggles, and goals, so I focus on tailoring treatment to the specific needs of each client."

"Thoreau said "There are a thousand hacking at the branches to every one striking at the root." In therapy, I believe our most valuable work is striking at the root of issues rather than hacking merely at the many branches/symptoms of the root. This latter approach often leads to resolving one manifestation of a problem only to require addressing new manifestations down the road. Whether the symptoms are anxiety, depression, addictions, or maladaptive relationships, it is worthwhile to examine the deeper sources of our pain. One of my primary roles as therapist is to provide a steadfast ground of compassion, patience, and truth."

So often, we have learned various ways of living to get through the days, to cope, but it's surviving and not truly living.

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

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
