I work with individuals 18 and older and can address most mental health needs by utilizing a variety of practice models including CBT, ACT , DBT and solution focused brief therapy.
For many of us the journey has been difficult, maybe feeling trapped, hopeless and as though you have tried everything yet powerless to change things. While everyone will feel this way during dark times if this has become your day to day struggle it may be time to seek support. I am here for you. I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out and try something new or something different. Whether this is your first experience with counseling or you are interested in a different approach this time, a life filled with meaning, joy and possibilities, connection to others is possible and within your reach.

Through kindness, compassion, and unconditional acceptance , I utilize evidence-based therapeutic modalities to help you achieve a greater sense of self-love, self-awareness and connection to others.
In therapy, we focus on the ABCs of psychology (affect, behavior, cognition), the way one feels, behaves and thinks. If we change how we feel, we can change how we behave, if we change our behavior, we can change how we think, and if we change how we think, we can change how we feel. In essence, we work on identifying the source of distress and maladaptive patterns in thinking, feeling, and behaving, which cause distress. To effectively implement lasting change, therapy focuses on healing these 3 interrelated human capacities and examines the maladaptive patterns that no longer serve a purpose in the life you are trying to create.

Life and relationships can be difficult: therapy gives you a place to be seen, to grow, and to heal.

I believe in a collaborative approach which allows us to work together to achieve your goals and build a relationship that lends itself to emotional expression and vulnerability. In this way we can overcome any and all stresses you are wanting to work through.

I offer a compassionate approach and am committed to providing a therapeutic environment characterized by warmth, understanding, and acceptance .
The journey toward and through parenthood does not always go as planned. Some people struggle with infertility and face heartbreaking disappointment each month that goes by with yet another negative pregnancy test. Others experience pregnancy or infant loss and grapple with unbearable grief. For others, a new baby brings with it a sense of overwhelming anxiety and depression that feels impossible to manage. Whatever it is that you are struggling with, know that you are not alone. I know firsthand how difficult the path to parenthood can be and want to assure you that healing is possible, no matter how much you are hurting right now.

I incorporate Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Exposure techniques into my treatment approach.
Do you need someone to talk to? Are you stressed over the chaos of everyday life? Do you spend a lot of time worrying and feeling anxious? Are you worried about how much you worry? At times do you feel hopeless, isolated or not your usual self? Do you feel there is no one you can talk to about your intense or personal feelings? Do you have internal thoughts or triggers about a traumatic event in the past? Does your past trauma cause distress in your current life? Have you tried to resolve these issues on your own without much success? These are struggles of anxiety, depression and trauma.

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 Wichita 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.
