When difficult things happen in life, we each tend to deal with it differently. We have our own, individual way of coping with life’s curveballs and challenges.
Yet, at times, the manner is which we deal with stressors can be destructive to our physical and mental health. Common destructive coping behaviors include alcohol use, excessive sexual behavior, illicit/prescription drugs, and over/under-eating. These coping mechanisms are popular for their numbing ability, yet hinder an individual from actually seeking the help they need to address the core of their stressor(s), and move forward.
Through supportive conversation, we can help you uncover the core issue that you are struggling with, and help you develop healthy coping mechanisms to overcome life’s curveballs.
