" I have several years of experience in helping individuals find ways to live happy and productive lives. I use cognitive behavior therapy, person-centered, psycho dynamic, and play therapy, interventions for treatment. Allowing the client space to establish communication, results in client cooperation and ultimately an alliance. Clients are able to talk openly, which in return they feel heard and understood. My clients are able to work through roadblocks that negatively affect their well-being throughout therapy. I create an inviting environment that motivates client to actively invest in their therapy goals. "

"Therapy can be very helpful in addressing problems you may be having in your life. If you struggle with relationship problems, decision making, depression, anxiety, self esteem, impluse control, trauma, substance abuse, grief, addiction or life transitions; I can provide a neutral non-judgmental space to explore and resolve these issues. Many people believe they should be able to solve problems on their own and seek help often waiting until the situation has grown unmanageable. However, early interventions and proactive actions tend to lesson the impact of painful experiences, allowing you to move past problems more easily and quickly."

"Sometimes the mind is the only thing in our control even though it doesn’t seem like it at times. I bring forth a cognitive behavioral approach, believing that if you can retrain your thoughts, you can retrain your perspective. This mind set shift can then have you feeling better in return. Not only will you be in the hands of a nonjudgmental or noncritical therapist, but you can feel rest assured that I will be a sounding board. Allowing for kindness, true genuineness, necessary honesty and growth. You will be in the drivers seat and me in the passengers, but the goal would be the same, the goal would be to get a good destination. "

"Many people struggle with anxiety, bouts of depression, feelings of worthlessness, and even thoughts of suicide. There is a certain stigma towards turning to counseling for our military, veterans, police officers, firefighters, and other uniformed personnel. However, when we dismiss our own needs, it is more difficult to protect, defend, and help those in need. Counseling is about forming a relationship and working together to make positive change. The client sets the pace and tone of each session. It is important to be an active participant in and out of sessions."

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?
Therapists in McKinney are able to work with a wide range of issues.
