Issues I Can Help You With
My Style of Therapy
The life you want for yourself, one that is rooted in a sense of meaning and purpose can be achieved. I take pride in my ability to easily connect and build rapport with clients. I create a space to explore difficult topics and develop new ways of coping.
We will work collaboratively to achieve your goals. We will continue to build on your strengths and develop coping skills and strategies to deal with the challenges of day-to-day life.
As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I strive to create a relaxed, empathetic and healing environment. I understand the importance of meeting clients where they are in their journey. Some of my therapeutic styles include acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and prolonged exposure therapy (PE).
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
In ACT, individuals are encouraged to accept their thoughts and feelings, rather than trying to suppress or control them. This acceptance does not simply mean “living with” negative thoughts, but rather means a willingness to acknowledge and experience emotions without judgment. Through mindfulness techniques, individuals learn to move away from judgment and reactivity to being more objective and centered.
This values-driven approach helps to build resilience against anxiety. ACT equips individuals with practical skills and strategies to cope with anxiety. It fosters a mindset that encourages openness to experiences, acceptance of discomfort and commitment to actions.
Through the integration of mindfulness, acceptance, and values-driven actions, ACT empowers individuals to develop a more flexible relationship with their thoughts, preventing them from becoming entangled in a cycle of anxious rumination.
