In uncertain times it can be difficult to navigate stressors and changes that make us feel out of control. Life can become overwhelming and it can be difficult to reach out for help or know where to start. Anxiety, depression, unfulfilling relationships, conflict, negative thoughts, loss of what feels like normal - it can be too much at times. Therapy is about connecting with another person who can help you navigate the rough spots, build skills, and gain tools for better living. You are the expert on your life - I look forward to meeting you and walking with you as you as you journey to wellness.

The therapeutic modalities I use are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
You strive for perfection in everything you do, but the pressure inside is building up. You act so strong like you have it all together, yet internally you overanalyze everything. It’s difficult for you to take breaks and struggle to ask for help. You fear failure and don’t want to let other people down. You prioritize taking care of everyone else and neglect your own needs. It is time for a change. It’s time to learn how to listen to your inner voice. You are ready to live a life free of self-criticism, workaholism, and perfectionism.

My ideal client is someone who is looking to grow, develop his or her identity, and learn to set and maintain healthy boundaries. I enjoy working with people who are uncomfortable with the idea of therapy or have had negative experiences with it in the past as my style is very relaxed and patient. I enjoy using humor and feel that everyone can benefit from having someone truly listen, not judge, and help without telling you what you "should" do. I love helping people find balance and explore meaning and purpose in life. There is no one size fits all approach, we will form a plan that works for and with you.

I use attachment theories alongside CBT, ACT , Polyvagal Theory, yoga, and mindfulness.
At one time or another all of us face something in our life holding us back from what we want to accomplish. Over the past 10 years, I have learned whatever is holding us back usually comes in forms of self-defeating thoughts alongside emotional dysregulation that is strengthened with habitually repeated cycles. Emotionally defeating our sense of self and over thinking unfortunately goes together. Our thoughts can seem so powerful, so true. When bodies agree, we have a connection. I can help you break the connection that is no longer working. When we remove, we replace. Let the new cycle begin! Give me a call if you're ready!

The act of engaging in counseling is an indication that there are aspects in your life that you wish to change.
At any age or phase of life we all want to be living our best life. Anyone can encounter situations or experiences that stand in our way to feeling happy and fulfilled. Counseling doesn't have to be for only dire or crisis situations, although it can help then too, but simply talking with someone who is objective and accepting can truly help to achieve a more satisfying life. The issues a person brings to counseling are so varied and vast that a skilled counselor is open to all people and all situations.

Although my clients are from all walks of life and situations, I work best when working with someone who identifies as LGBTQIA2S+, non-monogamous, on the kink/BDSM spectrum, and any overlapping identities thereof. My clients are either navigating change in their life (loss of a loved one, changing relationships, etc) or seeking to enact change in their life (reduction of mental health symptoms, building routine, etc). Along the way, they find their way to self- acceptance , self-compassion, and confidence. My clients want to build a collaborative partnership and want to build that partnership via telehealth.

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 Bath 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.
