Behavior therapy means that we will primarily look at what you do, how that works out for you, and how you could act more effectively to shape the life you want.
I have worked with a wide array of people. I've had the pleasure of working with individuals with Acquired or Traumatic Brain Injuries, Dementia, Intellectual Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, Mood Disorders and Anxiety Disorders. My work has been with people throughout the lifespan, from early childhood concerns, such as behavior problems, to adults of all ages. I work best with clients who would like to make a change in their life, and behavior, but do not have the tools or motivation to do so. We can work together to identify what might be causing issues & how to change those behaviors.

These emotions can feel overwhelming but are completely normal at different times in our lives. I am here to help.

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 Boca Raton 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.
