Therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply and genuinely with yourself in a way that translates to deeper connections with others in your life. It is also an opportunity to make changes in your life, get support during a difficult time, work on relationships with family, friends or romantic partners, or heal from a deep loss. I offer therapy which is collaborative, active and respectful. I listen attentively, ask questions, offer observations, develop strategies and give feedback with warmth, empathy and a lack of judgement.

Are you going through a transition in your career, relationships, family? You're a leader, but feel uncertain. Perhaps you don't like your job, but are afraid to rock the boat. Are you retiring and don't know what's next? Maybe you are leaving, starting, or struggling in a relationship and want to do it "right" this time. All Transitions have stages we need to address. Our past experiences create our lenses of fear or excitement about the future. Knowing your old patterns will help you to create the life YOU want now.

They may struggle with disordered eating and body image issues or feel disconnected and adrift in life. In therapy, clients begin to see themselves and others with more clarity and compassion. I work with people to improve mood, understand and process emotions, heal from trauma, improve relationships, find direction, and build vitality.

Anxiety allows living things to survive by providing a fast and forceful response to threat in the environment, either physical or emotional. But at times, these responses become dysfunctional and anxiety reeks havoc on the very values and relationships we live for. It benefits us to distinguish between responses that are helpful vs unhelpful or destructive. It’s valuable, to take time to explore which direction you truly need to move. All humans need help at times with perspective. Talking with a professional therapist can treat maladaptive stress, build productive insight and foster emotional maturity in self and in relationship.

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 Durham or for a Durham 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.
