I work to face those challenges directly with my clients using empathy and acceptance .
To me an ideal client does not exist we all have our struggles that are unique and treatment should be individual. The important thing is that a client and myself need to have a good relationship and commitment to doing the work as a team. I have passion for working in trauma and helping clients become empowered in their own story. I also specialize in relationships and interpersonal conflict. Finally, much of my work focus on the process of grief through life changes that we experience in order to build meaning and acceptance . The question is what do you want your journey to look like? How can I assist you on that journey?

I utilize parts work (IFS, shadow work) and somatic approaches and EMDR as well as a background in ACT ( acceptance and commitment therapy) to help highly motivated individuals and couples heal from perfectionism, frustration, feeling "stuck" and dull, to feeling alive, empowered, and aligned with their values in their new way of living.
Are you in a season of deep realizations and wanting to radically transform your life? Do you feel a longing for something more and still not feel satisfied? Perhaps your romantic relationships are not panning out as you'd hoped, or your search for meaning in life has come up short. Pandemic stress and burnout add to the pile, and you may be feeling stuck, desperate, or hopeless. If you are tired of the black and white and want to learn to surf the gray area of your unique thoughts, feelings, and desires as a life partner, business person, friend, and spiritual being, I would be honored to help you on your journey of integration.

If you need a place to talk about things you have been keeping to yourself about or perhaps feel you don't have anyone else to talk to, I can be witness to that and give you space when you need it, time when you feel you have none to spare, and careful curiosity that is both infectious to healing as it is inviting to the uncomfortable. I have honored the time I have with clients who are afraid to approach therapy or are discouraged to seek it and treasure the wisdom all of my clients have lent to me. My most treasured experiences with therapy come when my personal and professional experiences meet unexpected and novel territory.

To be real, to live a truthful life, we have to be ruthlessly honest with ourselves. Almaas. Therapy can help you to gain a greater understanding of the experiences, patterns and beliefs that keep you from creating a life in which you learn how to face uncomfortable feelings (sadness, anger, anxiety and depression) and interactions. In time, the therapeutic work can help you build a solid foundation that is meaningful, enlivened and dynamic. I strongly believe that people, given the opportunity, are motivated to evolve towards health and healing. I provide a safe and warm environment built on mutual respect and collaboration.

There are times in our life when growth looks confusing, and we can develop unpleasant symptoms or maladaptive coping skills. We all go through phases in our lives, and I think that sometimes we benefit from help navigating the temporary situations. I provide cognitive behavioral therapy, and brief, solution focused counseling when you need some extra help. Some of my clients I have seen for years, and others see me as they would their medical provider, when issues arise. My hope is to help you successfully process your thoughts and feelings and discuss alternative choices or behavior.

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 Thornton 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.
