It is crucial to find a therapist that is a good fit, therefore, I like to take the first few sessions to get to know each other and decide if we want to work together. I aim to create a warm, collaborative environment in which you feel comfortable talking about and processing the worst events that have happened to you in your life. My approach uses acceptance based strategies and mindfulness to help you increase insight as well as get in touch with your emotions, all in the service of living a richer life, more aligned with your values. I will help you face your fears by taking action steps towards what is most important to you.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Palo Alto or for a Palo Alto ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
