Coping Skills Therapists in Alaska (AK)

“My style as a therapist can best be described as eclectic, as I draw from a variety of techniques and theoretical orientations. That being said I tend to be highly client centered, which means I assume clients are the authorities about their own systems. In therapy, it's my job to describe what the science of psychology has to offer given the presenting problem and my professional experience in the area. However, it's my clients who get to decide how this information is applicable to their lives. More about my therapeutic orientation can be found on my website: www.reynoldstherapy.com

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MFA, MSW, LCSW
“In my psychotherapy practice with adolescents, men, women and families the focus is typically on issues such as behavioral concerns, depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, ADHD and anger. I believe that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect and honesty and that therapy should start where the client is at. Additionally, each client has their own ways of gaining insight and implementing new patterns into their lives and will have their own pace at which they discover the strengths within themselves. I like to work with the client to discover what is most effective for them and go from there.

Katie Kowalchuk, Counselor  in Juneau
“I recently came across the term graceful grit and noticed it resonated with me and my concept of the therapeutic process. I think there can be a misperception that therapy is "touchy-feely, soft, and cuddly." For me, this notion speaks to the graceful part of counseling which I believe is essential to growth. One must feel safe, respected, validated, and supported in order to achieve maximum wellness. However, change is hard and not for the faint of heart. Enter grit. Bearing one's soul, exposing vulnerabilities, and acknowledging the hard stuff in life requires courage, resilience, and strength.

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.
