You can experience acceptance , understanding, and emotional safety as you find inner strength and optimism.
Are you struggling with emptiness, sadness, or constant worry? Do you feel controlled by anxiety or difficult events from the past? Do you use up all your energy to trudge through life, barely managing what needs to be done? If you have experienced trauma, you may feel hopeless about the future and haunted by the past. If you are a parent, you may be wondering if your child's problems are "normal teen" behavior, or a sign that he or she needs help. If you or someone you love is feeling lost, broken, or depleted, I can help. If you are struggling to move forward, there is hope to overcome barriers and live a healthier, happier life.

Once you free up space in your mind from self-deprecating thoughts, you gain space for awareness, acceptance , and self-worth.
You feel like there is a huge weight on your chest. The pressure is not making it any easier to work, study, complete everyday tasks, or sleep the 8 hours we are told is so important to function optimally. You find your mind is constantly racing, playing out worst-case scenarios to events that haven’t even happened yet. Anxious thoughts are joined by physical discomfort. You might experience a knot in your stomach, and others may notice your uncontrollable tapping, finger biting, or fidgeting.

Uncertainty is one of the most uncomfortable experiences. It's easy to get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns such as "I should do more" and "I shouldn't worry about that." Oftentimes, as a result, we experience anxiety or distress. You may find yourself juggling work or school demands, relationship stress and even self-doubt. Creating balance in your life may not seem easy, but it's possible. Seeking the support of a psychologist can be a powerful step towards making a difference in your life. I focus on creating a collaborative environment to help you develop more adaptive ways to cope and to make supportive life changes.

If you've lost passion in your life or relationships, struggling to get through the day, feeling alone, regretful, idealizing the past, or even numbing yourself in some way to avoid feeling empty, it's time for a change.

Therapy is about facilitating conversations to help someone build self-awareness and healthier relationships with oneself and others. The experience of watching an individual grow beyond their current mindset of sadness, depression, feelings of hopelessness to unworthiness into an individual who truly knows and believes in their personal value is why I love therapy. To make you as comfortable as possible, we can also meet in your home. I have found that providing services in the home, when appropriate, can break down barriers and allow your natural environment to play a role in the healing process.

Your well-being is the foundation that serves you in life and self-care can often fall to the bottom of the list. Although life may seem uneasy right now, addressing your own needs should not be seen as a selfish act , but rather a path to self-preservation. Reaching out for support is not always easy and getting the support you desire is the highest priority.

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 Coconut Creek 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.
