My methods of practice are influenced by second and third wave behavioral therapy including, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and Mindful Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
"Therapy is a journey one takes with a trusted professional who will walk side by side, at times guiding and at times following. There are no preconceived notions about this journey however brief or extended." These are the words I have shared over many years of training young professionals. Though I treat all types of individuals, my area of specialty is complex trauma - borderline personality disorder, PTSD, and dissociation. I am intensively trained in DBT and have been practicing and teaching DBT for over fifteen years. My team is DBT by Design/South FL DBT Consortium.

I use elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Attachment Theory, Trauma Focused Therapy, Play Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help individuals.
Immediate Openings Available! Yung Pueblo, one of my favorite writers says, "Personal transformation is not easy. Healing yourself takes time. Letting go can sometimes feel overwhelming. Building new habits can seem like an uphill battle. Even with all of these challenges inner-work is worth it. This active form of self-love can radically change your life." Growth isn't just about being in full bloom; it's the process by which you get there... and how you continue to thrive after all the messiness from that growth. But often, you can't do this alone or without the right tools, support, and encouragement. That's what I'm here for!

I have a passion for connecting with clients to help them overcome their struggles and create renewed energy for life. To be human is to experience loss, difficulty, and heartache. But there is hope. As humans we also have the capacity to manage our problems, heal, and change our lives for the better. Perhaps you recently went through a break-up, job loss, or the death of a loved one. Or perhaps you just feel stuck in life and unable to break free from negative thoughts or unwanted emotions. You may be looking for a new life purpose or to change your story. Regardless of what you are going through, I believe therapy can help.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed or lost? Maybe you feel unfulfilled in your relationships, career, or other key areas of your life. If you are ready to explore these parts of yourself and interrupt patterns that are no longer serving you, then it may be time to engage in psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a collaborative process which allows us to look at the areas that are causing distress, and identify ways to adjust your thoughts and behaviors to create positive change. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you along this journey of self-discovery.

Sometimes even the strongest people need help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Overwhelming emotions can feel like they take over and impact our wellbeing and relationships. We can’t get “rid” of emotions or symptoms; however, we can learn to better manage them and improve stress management with therapy. My goal is to help you discover mindfulness coping skills to better manage emotions, thoughts, and self-talk so that you can improve the quality of your life and relationships. My aim is to help you discover new meaning, purpose, and thrive in your all areas of your life. Follow me on Instagram @drsylviak

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 Miami Beach 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.
