"I have evening & weekend appointments available. Balancing the joys and responsibilities of life is demanding. Understanding that each person's journey is unique, and full of hopes and struggles is key to good counseling. Everyone experiences events in their lives, and there are no guarantees we will get what we desire. Sometimes we know where we are going and sometimes we feeling lost. However, when we engage our ability to adapt and seek out solutions, we can make the necessary adjustments that keep our lives on course."

"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."

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.

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.
