I do not know about you, but this pandemic has truly tested my coping skills in ways I could not have planned for. For some of us, we have been drinking more frequently as a result of being overwhelmed, stressed, bored, fatigued, and hopeless. If you have been in recovery and/or have never struggled with the use of alcohol and/or substances, you may now observe yourself to have developed unhealthy habits, and neglecting the skills that have once worked. You may have noticed your loved ones are deteriorating in various ways, and this has challenged your effectiveness, prompting feelings of hopelessness.

Life is a journey, and we sometimes lose our direction, get "stuck," and don't know where to turn. Feelings of hopelessness and shame often arise, and our coping skills fail us. Joy can fade from our lives, and some of us isolate as we question who we are and where we fit in. If we knew how to make positive changes, we would jump at the chance -- we can't just "snap out of it" as some might suggest. My approach to therapy and counseling builds on client strengths -- we all have them, and I can help you to identify them. Therapy opens doors to wellness allowing patients to not only 'get well' but also to explore life goals.

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 Arlington 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 Arlington or for an Arlington coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Arlington coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
