"Anxiety, depression, and personal conflict are not always signs of illness, neurosis, or flaws of development, or character. Many times otherwise healthy individuals find themselves in internal struggles that are related to important growth points in their lives. These are periods of potential growth based in crises of values, spirituality, and expansion of self. Such crises are reflected in questions of a deeper, spiritual, or existential nature which the individual finds themselves asking, or in general non-specific feelings of unease, dissatisfaction, or depression. If you feel you are facing such struggles, then I may be able to help you."

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.
