Dr. Brennan believes that therapy is a place where people learn the tools they need to cope with stressors life has thrown at them. Her goal is to guide and educate you through your journey towards healing. Therapy does not need to take forever, you can heal and move forward quickly with the right guidance. Dr. Brennan approaches treatment from a holistic approach, preferring to treat patients as a whole, instead of focusing on symptoms which may be related to a larger problem. This means including nutrition and exercise in the treatment plan in addition to more traditional CBT and ACT techniques.

You seem to have it all together on the outside. You live by the golden rule, working hard, extending compassion and taking care of everyone but yourself. You conditioned yourself to say “I am fine” when you know you are not. You feel stuck in negative cycles and perhaps distract yourself from uncomfortable feelings by over working, shopping or drinking too much. You are constantly in survival mode, feeling stressed, anxious, tired, confused and overwhelmed.

I often hear from clients that they appreciate how radically nonjudgmental I am in our work. I believe that everyone does the best that they are able to, with what they know. I am a very active therapist, who provides praise and positive feedback often, but I also hold clients accountable in an effort to assist them in reaching their goals. Clients report that they feel as if they make progress in each session, due to our focus on creating and attaining small and realistic goals. I take an individualized approach to each case, and attempt to tailor each client's treatment to meet their needs most successfully.

I try to create a safe, trusting environment for my clients and work to bring an authenticity and sense of humor to therapy. My treatment approach is eclectic, and uses research-based methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy to help clients reach their goals. In general, I help clients learn more about their emotional selves to develop a deeper understanding of how they are built and what they need to cope more effectively. We also dig into old narratives that can get in the way of present goals, and work to develop more mindful ways of thinking that support what clients want in life.

In my 17 years as a therapist, I have worked with a range of clients such as co-dependency, anger, OCD, phobias, panic disorders. PTSD & trauma, couples, and families, and I have learned every client is vastly different. One thing that is the same is that the goal for the client is always moving towards living kind of the life they want to live. What that looks like is different for everyone because we all have our own set of values. But the stronger our values, the harder it can be to accept ourselves and others in the world. I help clients find that balance for themselves.

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 Basking Ridge 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.
