"Anxiety is a thief. It robs us of our peace and happiness. Anxiety steals our ability to focus and concentrate making us less productive. It kills our creativity and can destroy our ability to hope for the best. From difficult but manageable symptoms such as elevated heart rate, shallow breathing and tension all the way to completely debilitating full blown panic attacks, anxiety touches all of us from time to time. However, when these issues begin invading our emotional and physical space on a regular basis our lives become disrupted and even unmanageable."

Are your children struggling at school, with peers, or with other life stressors? If you answered yes, then counseling is a wonderful way to start making a change. I work with individuals of all ages and backgrounds to find ways to tackle the challenges they may be facing on a daily basis.

You may need someone to talk to about settling into college life, your first job or a new relationship. Outgrowing a friend or losing that cherished connection can be frightening.

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