Ever wonder if there is a way to get effective psychiatric help for yourself or a loved one from a highly trained Western medical doctor who practices what we all fundamentally know-namely that true healing requires balance and empowerment in mind, body and spirit? Ever suspect that although psychiatric medications can be critical life-saving and life-supporting tools, they ideally should serve only as necessary bridges to support a person along their wellness journey (and may sometimes be decreased or eliminated)?

Born and raised in Ohio and educated in Cleveland, I have 10 years of experience as an attending psychiatrist with the Cleveland Clinic. As a member of the Cleveland Clinic Quality Alliance, my new private practice in Rocky River leverages the resources of that large hospital system, including its electronic medical record system, to better serve my patients. I am a "complete" psychiatrist, paying particular attention to the ways that my patients' medical problems impact their emotional wellbeing. People are more than their parts - we treat the whole person in our comfortable and modern clinic every day.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Psychiatrists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Pepper Pike will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
