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.

My approach to therapy is guided by acceptance , mindfulness, and compassion-based theory and is grounded in the philosophy that psychological suffering is universal and that we need not be fixed in order to live rich and meaningful lives.
Imagine that you are engaged in a battle of tug-of-war. In between is a dark bottomless pit that you struggle against falling into. Some days it looks like maybe you are winning the battle; other days you are barely avoiding falling in to the pit. Humans are hardwired for pain and suffering. The good news is that rooted deep within us is also the capacity for growth and transcendence. Readiness for therapy involves an opening up to new possibilities and experience and a willingness to learn more supportive ways of relating and responding to life’s challenges, or in other words, learning to drop the rope.

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.

We can work together to find acceptance and peace with what has happened.
Has a cancer diagnosis turned your life upside down? Is cancer all you think about? Hearing those three words “you have cancer” is a gut punch that is difficult to process. Thoughts of scans, testing, treatment, and side effects can become overwhelming. Some people become paralyzed by fear and struggle to experience joy. Even after treatment is over, quality of life can be compromised. Are you living with fear of recurrence? Do you have survivors’ guilt? Do you feel like you should be now living a life filled with gratitude, but instead feel lost? Are you wondering what is that "new normal" they talk about? Do you just feel 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 Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Martinsville 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.
