Life in today's world is challenging. There are times when it can feel lonely and overwhelming. With the help of a good therapist, however, these times can become opportunities to find healthier ways of coping and a deeper understanding of who we are. Mutual respect, empathy and a sense of trust are key ingredients in this process. As those begin to deepen, one can begin to explore past relationships and hurts that may have led to ways of thinking and feeling that keep us stuck in old patterns of behavior. Understanding these patterns creates awareness and the ability to make healthier choices.

While looking for a therapist, many people would like someone who is non-judgmental, compassionate and a listener. My goal is to hear your story and assist you through the journey of life.

If I had to pick a single driving belief in my life thus far, it’s the importance of hope. Finding hope for yourself and for the people around you can make all the difference in your life’s journey. I have always felt a calling to help people in whatever ways they needed, from dealing with life’s stressors to finding hope again. I try to incorporate creativity and laughter into my counseling to help build up and empower my clients throughout their therapeutic journey.

Jennifer feels her approach to counseling is honest and holistic. Good mental health works from an ongoing growing partnership of mind, body and spirit. Each affects the other both positively and possibly negatively. Therapy is the place where a person can work towards a more cohesive and robust combination of the three. Jennifer uses different approaches, but feels passionate about the use of art and mindfulness within the therapeutic process.

There are times when life is painful and seemingly without answers, yet what seems most broken in us can be a channel for tremendous growth, even a source of strength we never knew was possible. My own healing through therapy and mindfulness meditation inspired me to pursue an MA in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco -- the first program in the world to blend Eastern philosophical and spiritual traditions with Western schools of psychology. Today, I feel honored to support others on their journey toward healing.

As a therapist, I work with people who are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or looking to make some sort of change (in life, relationships, unhealthy habits or behaviors, etc.). I work primarily from a relational-cultural approach, which means that my focus is on the therapeutic relationship, authenticity, and perhaps most importantly, collaboration. Content related to the past, present, and future are each considered to be sources of valuable information, as are thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I value creativity and a sense of humor in my work with clients; your experience is yours alone and as such, your treatment will be individually tailored to your needs.

Being human can be hard. Especially when you feel isolated, different-than, stagnant, or unworthy. Throughout both my personal and professional work in therapy, I've come to understand that these states of being human are largely unavoidable, yet teach us so much about ourselves and our needs, if we allow ourselves to explore them. I believe that we already have many of the answers we seek, and engaging in therapy is one way to access the insight you already posses. I'd love to help you develop self-compassion, understanding, and tolerance for the wide-range of emotions that come with being human!

I love working with clients that are dealing with challenges, and assist them in gaining the tools they need to increase their ability to live a sustainable life. Growing up in an area filled with poverty, I developed a personal understanding of what it’s like to go without due to lack of basic needs. As a Black woman, I have also seen a lot of racial injustice as well as the impact of unaddressed mental health challenges due to limited resources and access to care.As a result of my lived experiences, I refuse to remain silent and I have a desire to support those who are normally looked over and forgotten about.

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