I'm here to help you grow and change on your passage through life! Sometimes people have challenges to start with like thinking differently, or a difficult family. We may have questions about whether we still fit into a social or religious group. Challenges are harder if depression or anxiety hold us back or if we feel like we're stuck. Finding an empathetic, experienced therapist can be a connection to taking you out of isolation and uncovering your innate ability to change. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have done my own work to grow and I look forward to helping you!

Accompaniment matters. Relationships transform. We sit together to access the health that is at the center of every human being, even when one of us can’t feel it. We sit because healing happens in relationship, access to true self is made easier in the presence of another person’s settled nervous system, and because your healing matters for the health of all of us. Whether you are facing overwhelm, anger, a frozen feeling, compulsions, depression, trauma, anxiety, or facing other difficult experience, we can touch it with awareness and respect. Our experience includes joy, includes pain, and includes connection and compassion.

Over 15 years of experience with those who are grieving, people at end-of-life, older clients, and people in crisis have shown me life events occur in the context of personal story. My goals are to create a safe place to share that story, and to facilitate the client experiencing the story with increased awareness, compassion and respect. We will explore and celebrate strengths, and through a multitude of interventions ranging from education, mindfulness, journal writing, reflection and dream work, find ways to enhance the client's strengths and wisdom.

"Worried Well" describes those who are dealing with life the best they can in spite of anxious thoughts, depressed moods, overwhelming stress, or grieving. Juggling demands of work and home, struggling with relationships or divorce or a loved one's addiction, or experiencing significant losses can make anyone doubt life will get better. Some feel guilty or selfish for experiencing these thoughts and feelings. Many question God or harbor anger and resentment toward others. Some are simply numb and can no longer find joy in the journey. You are not alone!

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 Richmond 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 Richmond or for a Richmond coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Richmond 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 Richmond are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Richmond. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Richmond
