In these areas I have used DBT, mindfulness, CBT, SFBT and ACT .
At times life's struggles can lead to a need to adjust to things thrown your way unexpectedly. In these cases, feelings of anxiety, sadness or adjustments can become overwhelming and require some outside assistance to help us think things through and sort out our choices. Individuals with these concerns may want to find a place to assist them while maintaining their privacy, dignity and respect.

For those keen on interventions, anticipate a mixture of CBT, Acceptance Commitment Therapy and narrative work.
Your days are getting harder. You're sleeping too much... or not enough. The brain is running non-stop with insecurities, what-if's and shoulda woulda, couldas. You're ruminating and reflecting on recent changes, losses or maybe that one big thing you've been dragging around for a while. Whatever it is, it's affecting your mood, your body, your goals and your relationships. The good news is you've also got a lot of gifts and talents and we can collaborate to cultivate those strengths.

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.

Many believe that events, conditions, people and situations cause distress. However, as simple as it may sound, it is our own thoughts, beliefs and perceived meanings of these things that cause distress. I teach individuals how to recognize unhelpful thoughts, behaviors and triggers that maintain undesirable feelings. With added emphasis on problem-solving, acceptance and mindfulness, I assist you in gaining the tools you need to become your own therapist. You've taken at least 2 steps already 1) making the decision to obtain professional support and 2) researching professionals. Why not take the next step and make the call?

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 utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, including elements of narrative therapy, ACT ( acceptance and commitment therapy), CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), and compassion and mindfulness based approaches.
I genuinely believe that, when in a space of safety and acceptance , nothing can be more powerful than sharing our stories. The sharing opens space for processing, coping, and healing. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I practice a holistic approach to address many of life’s challenges, whether that be trauma, depression, anxiety, codependency, grief, or life stressors. I will sit with you, actively listen, teach you to process your emotions in a healthy way, and we will collaboratively work toward your desired outcome.

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.

The evidence based practice approaches that I often utilize are cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive processing therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Let’s be honest. People don't care what you know until they know that you care. I have been in your position before. Shuffling through profiles with uncertainty of if I would finally find someone who understands and can help. My empathy derives from being where you are before. We all face stumbling blocks in life. Noticing unhealthy relationship patterns? Interested in coping skills and boundary setting? Have you experienced trauma? Had difficulties moving forward due to grief/loss? Together, we can process concerns and meet realistic goals. There is no time better than now to become a better version of yourself.

Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Relationships can be ever changing, The change in a relationship can be expected or unexpected. Marital, pre-marital, family, work, friendships, parenting all have a impact on your life. You may have become stuck in a relationship where you feel you can’t grow, or a relationship you would like to salvage, or you just want out. Your relationship does not have to involve a person, you can have a relationship with gambling, alcohol abuse, diabetes distress, or stress. You want to challenge whatever relationship you have that impacts your life outside of your vision for your life.

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 Detroit 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.
