"I believe there comes a time in everyone's life when we will feel lost, disconnected or hopeless. We sometimes lose our ability to deal with life's challenges.This inability to deal with life's challenges can be frightening, confusing and problematic. What is needed at such moments in our life is an attuned and trusted other. Someone who can believe in us when we can't believe in ourselves. It is in this kind of therapeutic relationship where old wounds are healed and we learn to trust, manage our emotions and reconnect to our wise and true self."

"It is my belief that individuals are made up of three separate but interrelated parts. We have a physical system, a psychological system and a spiritual system. Invariably a disturbance in one system "ripples" through the other systems so that trying to treat one system alone is often ineffective. I treat all three systems through counseling and referral to other helping professionals as needed. I am married with adult children and grandchildren and am a native Texan. I am a Viet Nam veteran of the US Navy and a graduate of THE University of Texas at Austin. I attend Peace Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas."

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

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