I primarily operate from a relational/ ACT perspective.
I enjoy working with individuals struggling with chronic illness, eating disorders, weight loss, anxiety, depression, interpersonal concerns, and general life stress. I understand that it can be extremely stressful to manage emotional or physical health concerns in our fast paced, high pressure society. Throughout my training, I have admired the people I have worked with who are making transitions and want to examine themselves, their past, and their interpersonal environment to make changes that work for them.

Many techniques will stem from Cognitive Behavioral theory along with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
In the human experience, few emotions are more debilitating than shame. Maybe it’s the voice in your head beating you down at every turn. Maybe you find yourself stuck in past mistakes, or overwhelmed by everything that could go wrong in the future. Maybe experience has taught you to find yourself less-than in worth, relationship, and ability. When dealing with this kind of pain, vulnerability becomes unbelievably challenging, but incredibly healing.

This allows me to draw from mindfulness practices, acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ), and memory reprocessing (EMDR).
I believe therapy is about relationships. It’s about discovering how we connect with others and with ourselves. Together we will explore what brings you the most meaning in life and how to connect deeper with those things that are most important to you.

A holistic approach addresses mental and social factors, as well as encouraging and supporting an active lifestyle. The goal is to provide a safe place for clients to explore, grow and enhance their overall well-being while creating an individualized therapeutic experience.

I work with clients from all backgrounds, religions, gender identity, and sexual orientation. I believe that as we move through life we encounter moments that cause us to adapt; whether from trauma, unmet expectations, humiliation, lack of nurturing, societal pressure, or our role within our family. We cultivate these adaptations and carry them with us, applying them to new parts of life where they may no longer be needed. If we learn to meet ourselves with compassion, gratitude, and curiosity, getting to know the parts of us that work so diligently to protect us, we can begin to uncover and heal the deeper wounds that they shield.

Loneliness, fear, and worry are powerful feelings that can keep us disconnected from those around us. You might notice yourself thinking “things have to change” or “I can’t do this anymore.” Perhaps you feel like you’ve tried everything and are exhausted from the effort; you’ve tried to talk to others but walk away feeling misunderstood and lonely. It could even be that the fear of sharing your story and experiences feels overwhelming. Counseling is an opportunity to experience the opposite; it’s a space to connect with someone who listens without judgment or distraction.

Change is possible in all of us, even when it seems like we have been stuck in place for as long as we can remember. I believe that life happens, and there are circumstances that are out of our control that can cause us great pain and difficulties.These circumstances do not have to define who we are or how we live. I believe through a therapeutic relationship people can heal and lives can be improved. Together we will work towards building a safe and comfortable environment to allow change to begin.

I achieve this by providing validation, warmth, acceptance , and empathy, while also challenging you to implement the changes you want to make.
As a clinician, I believe in meeting clients where they are, identifying their strengths and barriers, in order to assist in developing a personalized plan for treatment and life management. I do not believe in a “cookie-cutter” method, and I am very open to exploring new methods and using multiple approaches to help each client individually. I assist my clients with understanding their behavior patterns and the changes they want to make while in treatment. Being in therapy means some form of change. Change can be different from client to client because each client has unique needs.

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 Belknap Lookout, Grand Rapids 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.
