Anxiety can be immobilizing. You are in a constant state of fear and it can disrupt your sleep, ability to focus, concentrate, and engage in meaningful activities and relationships. Sometimes you will alienate friends and family as it is hard to be present when you are always in your head. Also, being in a constant state of anxiety is so exhausting and disruptive it often leads to depression. Sometimes people get so bad especially if they have panic attacks they stop going places and their world becomes very small. I know anxiety. Whether you are coping with Generalized anxiety (worry about everything), Social Anxiety, or Panic.

My practice and training include CBT, DBT, ACT , Mindfulness, Compassion based, and trauma informed interventions such as IFS, EMDR and CPT.
My clients come to me due to anxiety and trauma related concerns while facing stressors and life transitions. Life is difficult when you are experiencing mental health struggles due to physical health, family or marital situations, dating hardships, work conflict and/or past life experiences. It affects self confidence. You could be struggling while navigating the impact of immigration, cultural background, identity, inter-generational differences, interpersonal challenges, and career demands on your worldview and yourself. As an Asian therapist, I not only have familiarity but also cultural competency in helping APIDA individuals.

Hi, I'm glad you stopped by! I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 6 years of experience providing individual therapy in the SF bay area. It can be a difficult decision to enter therapy. Many of us carry more stress than we are aware of, and sometimes the weight of past stressors and memories gets in our current life, preventing us from achieving our goals. I want to create a safe space for you to unpack your emotions, make meaningful choices, and restore inner peace so you can live your authentic values in all aspects of life.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

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 Cupertino 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.
