{{{{ ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS }}}} Good therapy begins with a strong relationship between therapist and client, and I believe that creating this empathic connection is one of my greatest strengths. I provide a client-centered, strength-based, affirmative approach that is warm and welcoming — a safe space where clients can share, process, and experience their thoughts and emotions. I am committed to meeting clients where they would like to begin their journey, working collaboratively toward healing, acceptance , purpose, well-being, and fulfillment.

As such, I employ several different therapeutic methodologies in my work with my clients including CBT, ACT , DBT, mindfulness, and Gottman therapies.
Hi there! I’m Ashley Davis, a licensed marriage and family therapist (or LMFT) in the state of North Carolina. I’m originally from the Triangle, and I love being able to make a positive impact in the community I grew up in through my work with the clients I serve. Being an LMFT, I have a unique approach to therapy, in that I approach therapy first and foremost from a systemic perspective. This essentially means that I place a large amount of emphasis on how people’s relationships, environments, and backgrounds affect their overall mental wellness and explore these areas in depth with my clients.

Our therapists are training in EMDR, CBT, ACT , and DBT modalities.
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT OUR PRACTICE (7 LICENCED THERAPISTS) Everyone struggles at some point in time in their lives. Acknowledging this to another person can be incredibly difficult yet, freeing. True strength is in recognizing our faults (because we all have them.....yes we do) and working to change them. That is why we say the healthiest people are sitting in our office. The healthiest people are those who can acknowledge that they can't do it alone. Sometimes we need to trust in other people to guide us and give us perspective. It can be a challenge to open up to friends and loved ones for fear of judgement or rejection.

I use mindfulness and acceptance based approaches to provide compassionate and effective treatment.
All of us get "stuck" at some point in our lives. It doesn't mean we are broken; rather, it means we must find our way back to a path of healthy and effective living. Sometimes, like quicksand, the harder we try to get out, the more we feel like we are sinking. I am a clinical psychologist with specialized training in treatment for anxiety, sleep disorders, depression, interpersonal difficulties, life transitions, and trauma. Regardless of diagnosis, our work together will help you better understand your strengths and challenges, and find a way to move forward toward a more fulfilling life.

Therefore, I use an integrative method, which incorporates acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based interventions and cognitive behavioral techniques.
There are many reasons why you might be seeking therapy at this time. You may be experiencing an underlying sense of unease, sadness, or fear and recognize that something is missing or is just not right. You may be facing a difficult situation that feels overwhelming or has you questioning everything you once knew. You may have unhealed wounds and traumas from the past that continue to cause distress for you now. Relationships may be conflictual or you may feel a sense of separation from others. You are ready for change.

I practice an eclectic counseling theory that includes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), psychodynamic therapy, attachment-based therapy, and the three-phase treatment approach for trauma.
Currently only accepting adult (18+) clients. Multiple factors determine our holistic wellness and one facet can often throw off the others. Our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects need to be addressed as parts of our whole self and should be included in therapy. I work with women and men ages 15+ to understand and reduce symptoms from various mental health concerns in an effort to work towards holistic healing of mind and body. I have special experience working long-term with persons dealing with the systemic effects of complex trauma.

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 North, Raleigh 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.
