It’s time to make a change. Every day, you serve other people, whether in your work life or home life. Helping people heal and grow is hugely important for you, but now it’s time to refocus on your own healing and growth too. You’ve been feeling unfulfilled, stressed out, and run down. You're losing sight of the deeper purpose for your life; a spiritual or creative drive that's going unfulfilled. Compassion fatigue is leaving you too drained to thrive. When you're joyful and healthy, you can serve the world more effectively. Self-care and emotional resilience are essential to good health.

True growth begins to take shape through self-awareness, reflection, and change. The therapeutic relationship is a major step towards that growth through collaboration, exploration, and understanding. I take great value in this relationship and hope to provide a sense of safety, curiosity, and overall relief of symptoms. I hope to help individuals develop and utilize better coping strategies, gain understanding of behaviors, and make connections between the past and present. It's truly an honor to watch individuals work to gain the successes in their lives, find true happiness and security, and an overall solid sense of themselves.

I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living.

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