"I am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist, practicing couples therapy using John Gottman's research-based approach (www.gottman.com). He has studied more than 3,000 couples and has identified the factors that distinguish happy from unhappy couples in long-term relationships. Using questionnaires, I would first assess your relationship on these factors and then target the therapy on the identified problem areas. If you feel disconnected from your partner or are locked in conflict, I can teach you some new skills to manage your conflict more productively and develop more intimacy and closeness."

"The possibilities for change, healing, and well-being often aren't trusted if you are dealing with depression, anxiety, or difficult circumstances. My goal is to provide support and safety for you to explore and understand problems with emotions, relationships, and painful experiences. It is possible to come to terms with disappointments and pain; accept (not like) these human experiences, and move through them to change. Tapping into your own innate healing power allows for caring connections, emotional safety, and growth ."

"I believe that it takes tremendous courage for an individual to reach out for counseling. People often take this step when they are feeling stuck or stagnant, unable to find relief and solutions on their own. I view my work with my clients as a partnership: I bring clinical knowledge and experience to the alliance and my clients bring their strengths, their inner wisdom, and their readiness to explore. While working together I provide a safe, comfortable and informative environment in which the client can find healing, seek solutions and create strategies that will bring about lasting change."

"Occasionally, our path through life appears filled with potholes, blind curves, and dead-ends. This can be overwhelming if we lack the tools to surmount these obstacles. Do you occasionally feel you were absent on the day the instruction manual for life was being handed out? If the answer is yes, then you are most definitely not alone. The decision to seek therapeutic counsel, guidance and support is not always a simple one. I feel honored when someone allows me to be a part of their journey towards wellness and greater satisfaction with life."

"Change changes you. And whether you're hurt from where you've been, stuck where you are, or confused about where to go, I'm here for you--completely, without reservation. Because right now, you're certainly surviving. But not necessarily thriving. You deserve to learn and grow from every challenge. I can help you through sticky life transitions, horrific grief, chaotic trauma, or living with a sensitive edge. You wouldn't expect to see "sensitive" paired with "edge," but it's sensitive folks (myself included), who have a hard time peeking out, but once we do? We're unstoppable."

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 Zilker, Austin can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.
