During our time together, we will use techniques such as CBT, DBT, ACT , mindfulness, and solution-focus, meeting you where you are in your therapy process to work towards helping you meet your goals.
Life is full of ups and downs, and sometimes you need someone to help you work through them! I am passionate about helping others through difficult times - you have so many strengths but just might not have tapped into them yet. As a LCSW with over 7 years experience working with kids, teens and adults as a school-based and outpatient therapist, there isn’t much I haven’t heard from my clients. My hope is that you feel comfortable and relaxed as we work together to determine what is important to you and how to get to where you want to go.

I use cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) modalities.
Life doesn't always go according to our own plan. It takes courage and strength to admit it is time to seek help when you are in need of support and guidance. An investment in a therapeutic relationship can allow you to find a healthier way of interacting with those around you. As a therapist, I have a passion in helping people who are struggling with life’s challenges. I have worked with a broad spectrum of clients including individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, pregnancy/postpartum mood disorders, trauma, guilt, shame, family conflict/relationship issues, grief, and high stress.

Other specialties include faith-based counseling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
I specialize in working with individuals who might be struggling with anger, anxiety, OCD, panic, perfectionism, and high-pressure life situations. My ideal client would be someone who is looking to gain insight into the issues underlying their concerns and work through those issues in a therapy setting. While there is often no clear-cut "one and done" solution to life's difficulties, I have seen the therapeutic process make a huge difference in client's lives.

Currently telehealth only. Do you find yourself overthinking, having self defeating thought, strive for perfectionistic standards? Many individuals have found themselves staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night replaying conversations or staying up late on an email to make sure there are zero errors. Let’s work together to change a fixed mindset towards a growth mindset. If you are looking for a therapist who will crack a joke, instill hope, celebrate your successes, and hold space for the heavy stuff...you are in the right place. I will assist you on finding your unique path to experience healing.

As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, it is truly my privilege to witness the kind of strength needed to find therapy. I have special appreciation for the (often painful) moment when your present becomes harder than the fear that comes with change. I hope you’ll find acceptance and respect for exactly who you are, while I also commit to do all I can to support the desired transformation in the areas that brought us together. I try to approach all that I do with compassion, curiosity, and with a deep appreciation for our shared humanity.

Difficulty in the face of thoughts and emotions is common, but something to remember is that all these things are adaptive and can be compensated for or re-adapted to meet your needs! Many people believe that they must take care of themselves alone, but community and seeking help is always a good idea and can grant us a different perspective! Finding support, gaining aid, as well as having a space to feel comfortable, safe, and heard is incredibly important for cultivating the correct environment for change!

Managing our emotions can be difficult on a good day, much less when life throws stressful events our way. We often feel overwhelmed, and we may not know in which direction to move. We also may put other’s needs ahead of our own, forgetting that our needs are just as important! That is where I come in. I will help you discover your strengths, determine your goals, and find what works to best help you take care of you.

Being a teen girl is tough! Raising a teen girl can be even tougher. Anxiety, depression, identity issues, peer relations, academic stress, and outside pressures can leave teen girls needing increased support just as many are beginning to pull away from their parents to develop their own passions and purpose. Parents often find themselves feeling like an outsider as their teen daughters suddenly begin to turn to peers, friends, and social media for advice and guidance instead of mom or dad. This can lead to increased family conflict as parents and teens struggle to communicate with each other and find common ground.

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 Greenwood 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.
