"Are you, your child, or family experiencing anxiety symptoms that are creating conflict within the family or social system and you feel lost in what to do?" As the parent of a young child I appreciate what it means to put your whole heart & soul into another being. It takes an immense amount of energy to maintain balance when complications arise, threatening to jeopardize the hopes and dreams we have for ourselves, our children, and our family system."

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.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in McKinney you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in McKinney and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in McKinney or family therapy in McKinney.
