The style I use combines concepts of Attachment Theory and ACT .
I enjoy working with Clients of all ages and a variety of struggles. I place a strong emphasis on the therapist-Client relationship because I believes it is the key to creating long-lasting change. I work from a person-centered approach that allows the ability to support Clients while they create their own change at their own pace. I go past the symptoms and instead help Clients discover and work through the cause(s) of those symptoms to affect true, positive, and lasting change. I have experience working with a broad range of Clients, including adolescents, adults and older adults.

I have training in both the Gottman Method and the Developmental Model for Couples Therapy and have seen amazing transformations when both are used to guide couples through various relationship struggles, including but not limited to: Affair Recovery, Divorce Adjustment, Sexless Marriages, Communication barriers etc. I work on teaching couples to not rush into just finding the solution to their pain, but to learning, understanding, and growing.

My approach is eclectic, using a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
My specialty is working with relationships; people having a hard time with relationships either romantic, at work or with a sibling, parent or friend. I teach effective communication, patience, and learning assertiveness rights (you have the right to say no to someone). I help my clients to identify their values, learn about mindfulness and describe what their "best life" looks like. If you are making decisions that are guided by your values, you will find your best life. I will help you identify ineffective patterns, find your path, set goals and get to where you want to be.

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 Winter Park 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.
