"Adulting is hard. Being a kid is hard. Being human is hard. Having access to all of the world all of the time is hard. It’s overwhelming and everyone has an opinion. And sometimes it can just become too much. Every stage of life comes with what seems like insurmountable obstacles. This day and age with the seeming constant comparison to a perfect social media life can leave one feeling impossibly more than less than. Sometimes we just need a little help. A place to sit with our reality without the judgement or the press to have it all. "

"I’ve been in practice in the DFW Metroplex for the past 13 years and I love what I do as much now as when I started. I became a therapist only after doing my own therapy for several years. Not the education and training process mind you, that came later but after I sat on that proverbial couch and faced my own demons. And that changed everything for me. It wasn’t easy. As a matter of fact it was both the hardest and best thing I’ve ever done. Because of that I am now dedicated to paying that gift forward. It won’t be easy but I give you my word it’ll be worth it. "

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 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.

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