Elizabeth Acheampong is not currently accepting new clients.
Resolving the impact of multicultural and immigrant family experiences; frequent worry; mood changes; negative self perception; isolation/withdrawal; shame and guilt; social anxiety; self-esteem; decision-making; multicultural and immigrant experiences; emotional neglect, abuse or abandonment. I assess, diagnose and treat anxiety, PTSD, depression, anxiety and personality disorders. My clients learn how to feel psychologically safe; develop healthy stress response & distress tolerance; communicate effectively; decrease sadness, increase emotion regulation; decrease undesired behaviors, and decrease guilt.
I use CBT, assertiveness training, mindfulness, DBT and behavioral approaches to address clients’ patterns of thinking rather than their external situation, allowing the clients to dictate the specific issues to be addressed; positively reinforcing experiences and reduce avoidant patterns; help clients express their needs and wants clearly.
You'll experience my therapeutic style as a holistic approach that provides a mutually trusting, non judgemental and authentic environment for clients to explore and express themselves. Compassionate support, trust and feelings of belonging are the foundations of hope and healing. My therapeutic approach emphasises supporting AAPI, Latinx & BIPOC identities.
