I subscribe to CBT and ACT techniques which allows us to work together in understanding how you see and approach the world.
My heart is to serve those struggling with depression and anxiety. Having a desire to address these issues head on takes a lot of courage; researching a therapist already speaks volumes of your resolve. My goal is to highlight strengths already present and work with clients to access these more readily. If your goal is to live a more fully engaging life-despite it's challenges and curveballs- I'm the therapist for you.

My specialty is working with young people. Whether you are a teenager who is struggling with anxiety, bullying, self-esteem, etc. or a young adult who is trying to manage the stressors of a "quarter-life crisis," I am here. The most important thing my clients leave with, is the ability to see themselves more clearly and with more acceptance . They gain the knowledge of how to tackle the obstacles they face, knowledge of how to transition and adapt to change, and the ability to communicate their needs, wants, and feelings effectively. I'm here to offer a space that is free from judgment, and a space where you can truly be accepted.

During graduate school, I was introduced to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), a research-based model that is perfectly suited to my spiritual beliefs and values.
My path to becoming a therapist was more of a calling than a career decision. I’m not particularly suited to this profession. I’m introverted, which causes me to present as somewhat unfriendly and aloof to strangers. I’m really not concerned with small talk or what I consider the superficialities of life. But when it comes to exploring the deepest, most difficult and painful core aspects of your life that’s the space where I feel most comfortable. The foundation of my practice is my own personal journey in 12-step recovery. I would say I was "chosen" for the gift of recovery from a self-destructive lifestyle more than 32 years ago.

I utilize ACT , CBT, IFS, breath work, and mindfulness methods, and I specialize in helping teens and adults with ongoing issues that hinder their daily life.
When teens and adults feel overwhelmed, they FEEL it- mind & body. There are so many factors; high achievers, life changes, puberty, and the rapidly shifting world around us can all play a part in the exhausting feelings many people live with. These things can have a direct effect on your physical health, too! The brain and the body are connected, and they will let you KNOW when things are not in sync. This can be confusing for some people, they get stuck and don't know how to move forward.

You lost something important to you and your world has never been the same. Maybe you know exactly what happened. Maybe it happened so long ago, you can't remember the details. Either way, you're haunted by the ghost of a better life. It always seems to be just out of reach. You spend your days treading water in a sea of loneliness and autopilot, your nights drowning in waves of anxiety, regret and remorse. Something needs to change, you can feel it in your bones. But every time you start to make progress, things fall apart. Sometimes you wonder if you're doomed to feel this miserable and broken for the rest of your life.

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 Pensacola 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.
