Asking for help is hard, realizing you deserve help is even harder! Therapy is an opportunity to discover the light that shines inside you and use it to start living a more fulfilling life. I believe each individual is special and unique. For this reason, I use an eclectic approach to therapy, meeting each person where they are, exploring values, understanding hurts, discovering passions, embracing strengths, welcoming challenges, and much more!

Discover, express and integrate previously unknown parts of yourself, build upon strengths already in place, and work on the past by increasing the vitality of your work on relationships in the present.

I am trained in EMDR, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping), Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP), Polyvagal Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and many other theories that inform the treatment I provide.
My ideal client is an individual seeking powerful change and who is also willing to look beyond traditional talk therapy to achieve it. As the field of psychology changes and grows, I believe it is important to adapt with it. As important as talk therapy can be to achieving stability, there are other valuable contributions that process trauma and transform the self without the discomfort of verbally processing painful memories. I combine both insight-oriented talk therapy and body based therapies such as the Safe and Sound Protocol, EMDR, and EFT Tapping for optimal, rapid, results.

I specialize in Acceptance Commitment Therapy and EMDR.
I offer clients calmness, compassion and the belief all can be helped because you have the motivation to call a therapist and want to change. . Change is painful for most of us, but it doesnt need to stop us from living a full life. Neuroscience gives us great hope knowing we can change the pathways in the brain. Therefore, the thoughts and feelings can become unstuck. My clients, whether they are a couple, individual or adolescent, tell me I am easy to talk to, and the homework, I suggest they do, brings results.

I work through building a collaborative, non-judgmental, therapeutic relationship based on acceptance , safety, equality, and honesty.
Life is a beautiful gift full of contrast, challenges, love and abundance. It provides the opportunities to learn and grow. We can also get lost in the challenges that can cause us to disconnect form our guidance system and become reactive to our current experience. Our individuality can get lost and we tend to identify ourselves by our mistakes, failures, or labels; these things do not define us. I work with individuals, couples, teens and adolescents who want or need guidance and support in today's changing world.

I have training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, and earned a Certificate in Complex Trauma and Dissociation from ISSTD.
I work with people who are struggling, and decide take the courageous step to ask for help. Many have a history of trauma and suffer from anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, parenting challenges, sleep issues, sexual difficulties, chronic pain, relationship problems, and other post-traumatic responses. Also, present-day situations in our personal or collective worlds can be objectively hard to bear. Our experiences leave traces psychologically and somatically, so I use evidence-based, body-oriented, mindfulness techniques to address limiting patterns so that you can live more authentically today's challenging world.

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 Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Sacramento 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.
