) It is important to develop coping skills that will last a lifetime.
**Tele-Health Available** I believe in the potential of people to heal and have the life that they deserve. It is normal for all of us to feel conflict, sadness, anger, or distress from time to time. It's when these feelings and behaviors start to negatively impact our lives that we may need extra support in sorting through what it all means. Counseling is not about me telling you what to do, but rather, joining you in the process of discovering what solution or outcome is best suited for you. I offer a judgement and bias free supportive environment to help you find your true self. Let's begin this journey together.

They are at a point where they are aware of a change in their “norm” and want to process through symptoms that have surfaced as a result of that change. They are looking for coping skills and techniques to assist initially in stabilization and possibly continued work to process through past events that might possibly affect them in the present. They have goals of identifying triggers and stressors, understanding current or past coping, and develop healthy coping strategies and interventions. They want to "feel" like themselves again.

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