It's quite likely by the time you're reading counselor profiles you've already made countless attempts to address the concerns that are weighing heaviest on you. Though many of those solutions have either not worked or were short lived I also understand that one of the most difficult things to do in life is to reach out for help. Therefore, asking for help by seeking a counselor can be quite difficult.

You love spending time with your most important people. Climbing the corporate ladder is going as you planned. You’re in a stable and loving relationship. Everything is working out. Right?! No, there’s a part of your life that you love, but can’t share with the world. You make excuses as to why you can’t attend family functions. You avoid talking about your personal life with coworkers. Your same-sex partner is no longer okay with being introduced as your “friend.” That’s living a double life. It’s painful and creates overwhelming pressure. It causes broken relationships and leaves you unhappy.

It's well documented that the mind can know one thing but the body keeps the score when it comes to trauma. If the body continues to hold trauma (sensational, somatic memory), we approach life though hyper-vigilance, shame, and disconnection, but once the invasive dandelion roots of trauma are dismantled, only then will we understand our true self as connected and loved, capable and enough, safe and trusting and have the capacity to know and experience our joy and to be curious and compassionate with ourselves and others.

It's a big decision to see a therapist. The thought of sharing deep hopes & fears can feel daunting. I offer safe space, free of judgment, to work on the changes you are seeking. I hope you will feel empowered to ask me (or any other clinician you are considering) about major concerns prior to scheduling. Growth work can be crucial: in order to find connection within ourselves, with our spirituality or sense of life purpose, and to make fulfilling relationships possible. Do you just need to regain your focus? If you do take this step, I'd be honored to work with you to journey toward more meaningful, joyful living.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Nashville are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Nashville. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Nashville

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