My goal is to help clients reach a state of happiness, self- acceptance and fulfillment.
Are you unhappy with your relationship or struggling to cope with a life transition, loss, recently diagnosed chronic illness, or your child’s behavioral and/or emotional problems? Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed and frustrated? Does your physical appearance make you insecure or unhappy? Do you feel like you are having difficulties managing your new medical diagnosis or problematic lifestyle behaviors (weight management and smoking)? Do you feel your son or daughter has become irritable, stressed, unhappy, or is exhibiting low self-esteem and you have tried everything to make it better and haven’t been able to help him or her?

I work side by side with my clients to create a nurturing and empowering environment that is rooted in non-judgement, respect, acceptance , authenticity, curiosity and trust.
It can be really scary and debilitating when our minds and bodies are riddled with fear. This can show up as a high need for control, a low tolerance for uncertainty, fear of the unknown, fear of disappointing others, difficulty having boundaries and many other symptoms. Anxiety, OCD, PTSD & other fear based conditions are typically kept in place by an overwhelmed nervous system and an overactive survival instinct. In my work I help clients release these patterns so that they can experience and cultivate more inner peace, confidence, connectedness and wellness in their daily lives.

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 Alpharetta 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.
