My approach is adaptive and client-centered, meaning that I will meet you where and how you are, with evidence-based foundations in EMDR (formally trained), ACT , Mindfulness-Based CBT, and parts work, oriented by psychodynamic, systems, and attachment theories.
As your therapist, my commitment to you is to show up authentically human and always remain anchored in warmth, nonjudgmental, and accepting of you with curiosity and flexibility. In the therapeutic alliance we form, the priority will be a foundation of trust and emotional safety where you feel seen, understood, and valued. I find fulfillment through partnering with individuals who are ready to see a change in their lives, whatever that change may be. I do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach to therapy, so I prioritize collaboration, partnership, and the connection between us to find your path of evolution together.

You can act now.
Are you tired of feeling unmotivated, dissatisfied and stuck? Does your mind run at thousands miles per hour and you feel like you have no control? Do you feel confused in your own body and mind? Is shame, anger, guilt and fear overwhelming you? Has religion become a source of pain? If it feels like nobody understands you and you must suffer alone, then allow me to journey with you.

Other therapeutic techniques commonly used in session are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectable Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
Traveling through your journey in life is a powerful experience with unexpected bumps in the road, often creating feelings of uncertainty and self-doubt. When we experience thoughts and feelings that are uncomfortable such as depression, anxiety, stress, and changes in mood, we tend to also feel it physically in our bodies through lethargy, pain, and changes in sleep and weight. Inversely, what we put in our bodies often times impacts how we feel emotionally, without often times even knowing it. Using a mind-body therapeutic approach allows you to identify skills for a means of transformation in your emotional and physical life.

My collaborative approach is relational, helping individuals meet goals, and build self-compassion and acceptance .
If you’ve been feeling lonely, anxious, stressed, or even lost, reaching out for support can be a positive first step towards healing. It’s important to know you do not have to go through this alone. Talking with someone can allow you to see how your thought patterns and actions impact the way you feel. My specialties include working with anxiety, stress, self-doubt, perfectionism, grief and loss, and life transitions. I also support individuals who are highly sensitive and struggling caregivers who often put their own mental health aside to care for others.

I believe the wounds of our past (relational, physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, cultural, etc) often intrude on our present in overt & covert ways. They lead us to believe limited and misleading stories about ourselves, the world & the people in our lives. I am passionate about working with individuals to overcome the dysregulation & self-defeating cycles of trauma & addiction. I specialize in working with adults who struggle with shame, depression, anxiety & relationships.

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 Parker 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.
