Patients typically come into therapy feeling anxious, afraid, and wanting relief. I strive to alleviate this discomfort with my caring, open, and empathetic demeanor. Experience has shown me that therapy can help patients better live life on life's terms. I believe that through acceptance , committed action and the help of a professional, lasting change is possible. This change helps patients feel less need to escape their feelings because they feel better about how they act . Therapy is not always easy, but it is worth it.

My work is informed by my background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ).
I believe that parents/caregivers are not only their child's first teachers, but often their best therapists. I seek to support parents (biological, adoptive, step, foster) and families of all types as they navigate the often-challenging work of nurturing and supporting the children in their care. I believe in helping parents to "secure their own oxygen masks before assisting others," by providing a safe space for parents to explore their own identities, values, challenges and experiences as caregivers. I am also experienced at providing practical guidance to parents facing challenging moments with their children.

The tools I use draw upon my training in a number of approaches to therapy, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and mindfulness-based approaches.
I believe that helpful therapy unfolds in an environment that is comfortable, empowering, safe, and one that allows for full expression. It is also important that the person I am working with can sense that I am listening attentively as they share the various layers of their experience. Individuals often seek help because they are unsettled or upset by what they are feeling. I aim to help clients "hold" their current experience without becoming overwhelmed, and eventually, to use those feelings as valuable information as we move through the therapeutic process.

I believe in unconditional acceptance and will strive to meet you where you are, without judgment.
As a child of immigrants, I understand the duality of living in a culture that is so very different from one’s own. These experiences help to shape my work with my clients, and I am able to provide various different lenses from which to consider common problems. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, familial problems, phase of life problems, or are looking to gain more insight into who you are, therapy can prove to be a useful tool to move towards healing.

I do not limit my practice to serving only those who consider themselves “a person with a disability;” however, I do appreciate that EVERYONE has their own set of strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to help the individuals I work with identify and enhance their strengths so they can more efficiently use them to minimize the effects of weaknesses as barriers to achieving their goals and improved quality of life. To achieve these outcomes, I rely upon evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions, including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy that are tailored to each client’s unique history, present concerns, and future plans.

My practice is grounded in anti-oppressive frameworks that aim to recognize and address the impact that systemic violence and social injustices can have on your wellbeing. I value an honest therapeutic relationship and to be part of the system that supports your wellness and joy.

We’ll engage in that activity in a mindful, trauma-informed way and have deep, reflective conversion, weaving together relevant threads from ACT , DBT & more.
You’re a little different. You’re seeking more out of life than mainstream society implies is possible. Perhaps you’ve always felt that there’s some piece missing but you can’t put your finger on it, or that you have a calling that you haven’t discovered yet. You feel things strongly. You may have been told that you feel things too much, or that you are too much. Maybe you’re looking for a better way to live with anxiety, depression, a trauma history, or an illness you can’t make sense of. Maybe you’re not sure what’s wrong, but you know things aren’t quite right. You wonder if there’s anyone else like you. I’m so glad you're here.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Ann Arbor or for an Ann Arbor ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
