People often think psychotherapy is only for crises. However research shows that therapy is one of the best investments you can make for life satisfaction and growth. In addition to therapy are other modalities that support healing and growth. Some of these holistic wellness tools include exercise, mindfulness, tai chi and yoga. I have a rich background in the application of mindfulness to promote healing and growth, and have experience integrating tools such as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, DBT, CBT, Hypnosis and EMDR. I also find authenticity and humor essential for healing and use both liberally.

My theoretical approaches are evidenced-based and include: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.
I like to create a welcoming environment to promote healing and allow clients to process the issues that brought them to therapy. Life can be overwhelming or frustrating as we navigate the changes and challenges that come along. Therapy is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of our internal experiences, our relationships with others and how we see ourselves in the world. Letting go of past events that still effect us can allow us the freedom to be more present to explore our values and live a rich, rewarding life. The client/therapist Relationship will be the foundation for the work that we do together.

I will utilize a person-centered approach, recognizing that you are the expert in your life while incorporating evidence-based practices that include DBT, ACT , and CBT.
Sometimes we feel stuck. We’ve tried on our own to heal, grow, and learn but we still find ourselves in the same patterns that have led to a continuous cycle of confusion, shame, and hopelessness. You are not alone. If you have found yourself questioning your worth, your relationships, or your identity, I am here to help. Most of us know, logically, that hardship, distress, and unwanted emotions are a part of life. But sometimes we were not given the correct tools to manage these difficult experiences. Together, I believe we can connect back to your authentic self so that you can lead the life you want.

I use ACT and CBT to help clients identify and explore thoughts and feelings, and use DBT therapy to help clients learn skills to find emotional peace and cope with distressing emotions.
Stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fear can feel overwhelming. You may find yourself turning to drugs or alcohol, harmful eating patterns, self-harm, or fall back on other old habits to cope with your emotions. You may be struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or fear. Maybe you are in recovery from addiction or an eating disorder, and are having trouble maintaining your progress. You may be navigating your gender and sexual identify. Or perhaps you are concerned that your teenager is dealing with some of these issues. Whatever you are facing, you are not alone! I am here to provide support, guidance, and encouragement.

I blend active problem-solving and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you work on building self-awareness, enhancing emotional intelligence, and discovering values based in your authentic self.
Are you feeling unworthy of the life you are living or maybe incompetent in the role that you have? Maybe it feels like every thought that crosses your mind is a spiraling rabbit hole of worst-case scenarios, and it’s creating a barrier to reaching your fullest potential. Has it felt like you’ve been on an emotional roller coaster of sadness, anxiety, or confusion and you feel like the ride is never going to end? Perhaps an unsettling sense of wanting to isolate or build walls within your close relationships. You always make sure everyone else is taken care of first; however, you know it’s time for something different. Time for you.

Counseling is such meaningful and rewarding work and I am so grateful that I get to do it. My goal is to always be growing as a person right alongside you and to always approach my work with a sense of openness and curiosity rather than judgment. After all, we’re just two humans talking about being human. My hope is that you can learn to further embrace your humanness and leave behind your shame in the process. While talk therapy can be extremely valuable, I recognize that there are some problems that conventional talk therapy can’t quite reach, which is why I typically use a more experiential, trauma-focused approach to counseling.

Texting a friend: I’m on my way. Autocorrect: I’m 'in' my way. Touché. Can you relate? Ever feel like something is missing? Like you aren’t quite living your best life… and there’s a sneaking suspicion that you’re in your own way? Be it anxiety, perfection-seeking, family struggles, debilitating lack of confidence, all of these and more can result in just falling short of where (or what) we wish we were. Or perhaps you feel drained watching your child have similar struggles.

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. I am honored to walk with individuals and families on their journey to find hope, a fresh perspective, and new paths to achieve their goals. Helping to navigate life changes is my specialty. My approach is warm and direct and I utilize a tailored approach of cognitive and dialectical behavioral interventions to assist clients struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma.

Life can present challenges, some we live with every day, and others seem to come out of nowhere. Maybe life doesn't follow along a path we've spent years creating and working toward. The business of living can begin to feel like a grind, and simple tasks may create exhaustion, fear, and uncertainty. Unresolved and painful childhood memories seem to revisit out of nowhere, and even though you've worked and wished, or prayed about the pain, the pain lingers. We often resign ourselves to perceiving life as a chore instead of a joyful experience, which can lead to a lack of fulfillment and even chronic illness.

Welcome. Often where we grow the most and feel most authentic to who we are is when we push ourselves out of our comfort zone. This may include starting therapy, speaking up for ourselves, or finally listening to what our body and mind are saying. This can be hard even when it means letting ourselves rest when our mind says to go. Society has a lot of expectations that mislead us from being who we are or listening to our own needs. The beauty of therapy is that you can listen to your voice, your heart, and what you want. Together, you can discover and create space to hear your truth.

Do you constantly reminisce back to a time in your life when things just “felt better?” We as humans tend to avoid things that make us uncomfortable, whether it be conversations, places, or even emotions. My goal as your therapist is to support you while you explore what is presently keeping you from feeling better as we identify and address what's keeping you stuck.

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 Hendersonville 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.
