Taking the initial step towards mental health self-care & counseling is a courageous act . We sometimes neglect our emotional & mental well-being, which happens to be the foundation of our physical self. With over six years of experience in narrative psychology and a client-centered approach, my initial goal is to make you comfortable to share your story from the minute you step into my office.

As a multicultural and highly sensitive person, I know how overwhelming life can be. Being human is hard! We get lost in our thoughts, overthink, and find ourselves with unwanted emotions, unhealthy habits, and feelings of defeat. Due to cultural/familial influences, we get stuck between who we think we "should" be and who we really want to be, always comparing ourselves to others. Fear of vulnerability and judgment can keep us from seeking help to avoid showing any “weakness”. You're not alone! I'm here for you. I want to make sure you feel seen, heard, and understood so that you can rediscover self-empowerment and self- acceptance .

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 Flushing 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.
