Over the years of working with people in intense times of pain, conflict, loss, and hopelessness, I have been shown that people possess the ability to heal when given the opportunity in a safe environment. Working with adults in a variety of capacities, I have the perspective that through empowering relationships, people are better able to access growth, understanding, and positive change. Through compassion, reflection and understanding patterns of behavior, I facilitate a collaborative process of identifying goals, working toward self-understanding, and ultimately actualizing changes that people desire.

I believe that most people, at some point in their lives, may face challenging issues, be it job or family stress, relationship issues, death, or illness. My philosophy as a practitioner is to help those dealing with such issues to find support and help in facilitating change where it is needed in order to relieve some of the strain and enhance life experiences. My style is compassionate and individualized. While therapy should always be a forward progress, the pace of each person's therapy should be suited to the individual.

Life can be full of responsibilities and stressors that can become overwhelming and difficult to handle, affecting our emotional well-being, sense of self-worth, and many times our relationships. If you’re feeling depressed and/or anxious and alone; if you're struggling with expectations, sacrificing your own needs to please others, feeling lonely or experiencing issues with your partner, and/or significant others or would just like a safe place to share your feelings, therapy can be a good option.

I believe therapy can help clients manage life's challenges and disappointments. I am focused on providing a non-judgemental, supportive space, where clients can develop a genuine relationship with me as their therapist. We would work towards exploring issues and concerns, and learning to practice self-compassion. In therapy, I can help people focus on recognizing patterns, thoughts and behaviors and changing them to relieve pain and sadness and/or reduce anxiety or stress. With relief, clients feel better and can move forward and make positive changes in their lives. I hope to help clients find and shape a path to change.

My ideal client is looking for a strength-based approach to treatment - not just a focus on "problems." I believe that you already possess many skills and abilities that simply need to be unlocked to overcome your difficulties. I am passionate about helping others and consider myself to be a champion for social justice and working with clients who might come from marginalized communities or face discrimination or harassment. My ideal client is looking for a partner to help them in the change process - someone who will point out blind spots and provide practical steps to deal with their problems.

At times, life can feel like it is not going as it should. So often the experience of overwhelming feelings, discomfort or unmet expectations can leave you feeling an incredible amount of shame, guilt, embarrassment or confusion. You may even find yourself isolating or doing things to avoid feeling the full extent of your discomfort, which often doesn’t fix things. This is a common experience, and a time where it can be helpful to allow someone like myself to support you in making sense of what is happening, and to work through whatever you are feeling.

I strive to be authentic, genuine and transparent with all of my families. If you feel lost or have become frustrated with your child, I'm here to listen and help. Together, lets figure out a solution that works for both you and your family. Speaking of transparency, I'm a kid at heart. I play Mario Kart, 90% of the pictures on my phone are of my dog and still get a little bummed out when I lose at UNO. I tell you this upfront because I expect us to be open and honest with each other throughout this process. In addition to working with young children and adolescents, I also work with adults who are diagnosed on the spectrum.

There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

I work with people of all ages, identities, and backgrounds. I approach my work with respect for the individual, a non-judgmental attitude, and genuine curiosity. I would like to find how you experience the world, help you find patterns that lead to suffering, and assist you in breaking those patterns. I work predominantly from an insight-oriented framework, but I also have training in skill-based interventions that we can utilize along the journey. I have a particular interest in working with complex trauma, but I work with all people, whatever the concerns.

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 Berwyn 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.
