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

Sheila Smith, Clinical Social Work/Therapist  in Fairbanks

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
“Being a therapist has taught me that those who seek treatment are "stuck" in patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting that have not worked for them. Most know what the problem is, but not how to fix it. Would anyone take their car to someone who didn't understand automobiles, know all the mechanical strengths and weaknesses of a car? A good therapist is first and foremost a good detective, looking for clues that are not always apparent. Additionally, a quality therapist has an innate sense of what must change to eliminate the problem and a plan that will work for that client.

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.
