"If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction. "

"Being a woman and all of the roles that entails is difficult. Add to that a high achieving personality and things can get out of hand. While there is nothing wrong with being driven, the anxiety and stress that come with perfectionism, caring what others think, and fending off your own criticisms can take up all of the space in your head. Before you know it, you realize that you're not living life you're surviving it. You want deeper connections, but being vulnerable is something you struggle with. The goals you have for yourself are no longer motivators, they've become an endless stream of to-dos. You're absent from your own life."

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 San Francisco or for a San Francisco 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.
