I use a blend of approaches, but find EMDR, DBT, ACT , CBT & psychodynamic modalities to be most effective.
Are you burned out? Overwhelmed with grief, overthinking, care-giving, or from chronic pain or illness? Are you or your loved ones repeating patterns and you wish you could break the cycle? Maybe little things just feel more stressful than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, break unwanted patterns, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

I utilize a blend of different modalities, primarily Humanistic Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
Do you desire to move forward but don’t understand what may be holding you back? Are you seeking a supportive partner in your healing process? What is important to you when working with a therapist? I follow the notion that the relationship is one of the most important aspects of the healing process and utilize it as one of the main tools in the work with my clients. Whether it is processing trauma, exploring anxiety or depression, addressing relationship issues, or getting through a transitional phase of life, among many other reasons, sometimes therapy with a strong therapeutic relationship as a foundation can make a difference.

Are you or your child struggling with overwhelming worries and fears that seem to be present no matter what you do? Maybe it started off small, but the problems have just grown over time until they are starting to take over your daily life. You may find yourself doing different little things to try to manage the worry or reassure yourself, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Maybe you have even tried therapy before but have had difficulty finding someone who really seems to get you and understand what you need. If this sounds like you or your family, we are here to help.

I am a licensed professional clinical counselor and I have enjoyed working with children, teens, and adults for thirty years. I feel passionate about helping individuals and couples find peace and healing for their lives and relationships. If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger or relationship issues I can offer help. As a couple you may feel like you need to learn communication skills or how to reconnect emotionally. Perhaps you are having family problems and need help finding resolution. I have found that counseling provides the tools and resources to help us manage and overcome life's challenges.

I understand how difficult it is to feel anxious, sad, or depressed and how those feelings can impact how you view yourself and your relationships. Psychotherapy is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with someone who supports and guides you while encouraging insight, growth, and groundedness. Through 12+ years as a clinical social worker in pediatric and adult settings, I have extensive experience in the ways stress shows up in our lives. We partner together to address your concerns and therapeutic goals. My style is collaborative, warm, and attentive, and I often utilize humor in my work.

Life, relationships, and the whole world always seem to be changing. We can become overwhelmed trying to keep up, or sometimes we can become frustrated that in a world full of change, we feel stuck in an unfulfilling place. Using an integrative approach of evidence based practices, I specialize in supporting people through their change process. Together we can sort through which of your needs are not being met, and collaborate on how to take meaningful steps to remedy that. I know mental/behavioral health services can be intimidating, and I look forward to breaking down that barrier with you.

I see you. I see the darkness you're sitting in; the pain and shame of the dark and scary thoughts that feel unlimited and overwhelming. I see you pulling away from the life you had planned and wanted so desperately. I see you hesitating to share these feelings with anyone out of the fear of embarrassment and ridicule. I see you in pain, but I also see your potential for joy and fulfillment. I see your potential for growth and change.

Working through difficult times makes us, and our relationships, stronger. Making the decision to begin therapy isn't always easy, but sometimes it's just what you need to get your life back on track. Despite the stereotype of a therapist being someone who will, "tell you what to do," my role is to listen and help you toward hearing your own answers. It can offer you insight and perspective so you can achieve what you are striving for in your life. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of you living a happier 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 Santa Clarita 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.
