My primary approach to therapy ( ACT ) recognizes that our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are understandable reactions to our experiences.
**UPDATE 2/20/22: I'm not taking new therapy clients but I'm available to write letters for gender affirmation. Visit website for therapy waitlist** My practice is focused on supporting LGBTQIA+- identified people and those who wonder if they may fall under that umbrella. I always have availability to provide letters of support for gender affirmation. I believe in your ability to know yourself and what you need. I will partner with you to discuss the letter requirements (WPATH Standards Version 7), how your experience fits with those requirements, and how I can write a letter that meets your needs and is authentic to who you are.

Accepting new clients for telehealth. That first time you pick up the phone or send an email to schedule your very first therapy appointment can be very challenging.  It's a feeling of vulnerability. My job is to make it as smooth a process as possible by providing a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment.  You will get to decide if we will be a good team, what you'd like to work on, and together we will help you get there.   ​

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 draw from a variety of approaches, like Internal Family Systems (IFS) & parts work, Acceptance Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Accepting new clients! Big life changes, like leaving a job to pursue a passion or moving to a new city to start a new life chapter & anything in between, can be hard to navigate. While these can be exciting adventures, these changes can surface lots of difficult feelings in addition to painful memories of moments from our past. Sometimes we feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed & lost in these situations. Many of us are told to feel happy about these changes, but that might not align with our lived experiences. You’re not alone in this - we can work together to help you find comfort in navigating all of these things.

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 Ypsilanti 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.
