I draw from several treatment modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based and Mindfulness.
I am compassionate, approachable and practical, working toward empowering clients to learn healthy coping skills to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. I work collaboratively with individuals, providing a safe and warm environment allowing them to explore issues that may interfere with their daily lives or where they may be feeling stuck. We look at ways of increasing confidence, developing more satisfying relationships, learning new coping skills by exploring possible self defeating patterns and areas for growth.

I was educated in a psychodynamic framework and was trained in CBT, ACT , narrative, & play therapy in clinical practice.
Taking the step to seek treatment is incredibly brave but can be daunting; clients can expect that I will be a warm, active participant who is honored to guide them through the process. I work with children, teens, and adults to explore how elements of their histories may contribute to their current concerns and interfere with their ability to thrive. My specialization is in loss and trauma but I also treat anxiety, mood instability, parenting, and relationship issues. Clients at times have difficulty connecting with others or achieving their goals; I frequently integrate various tools and techniques to best help each individual.

As a therapist, I start with the basic assumption that we all have a fundamental impulse for growth and well-being. Sometimes we need resources, guidance, and expertise to rediscover this. In my practice I am looking to engage clients to gain insight, discover motivation, and hone emotional skills. I am interested in providing the most conducive setting for people to cultivate their innate creativity, intelligence, and courage in navigating anxiety, depression, and the range life’s challenges.

My therapeutic style is warm, empathic, and flexible. I have expertise in multiple therapeutic approaches and will work with you to find the best fit for you.

Anxiety looks different for everyone. You may experience an unending spiral of anxious thoughts, you may find yourself fixating on a specific situation, you may lay awake at night replaying every situation from the past day. There is no true limit to what your anxiety may look like. Recognizing the impact that anxiety has on your every day life is healthy step toward regulating it.

Garret operates from an eclectic framework, therefore drawing from multiple theories of psychology and psychopathology. He is well read in many areas of psychology, psychopathology, and treatment. Garret does tend to gravitate towards Humanistic/progressive theories/interventions, including narrative therapy. CBT/DBT tends to be used in the right situations, with the right client, at the right point of treatment, however, he sees these interventions as 'band-aids.'

In my years of experience as a Clinical Social Worker, I have worked with many clients in multiple settings. What I have discovered is that as humans, we all shared similar emotional experiences. Emotions, such as sadness, anxiety, worries, trauma, and difficulty coping with everyday life stressors is arduous. Theses emotions can impair how we function, view the world, and how we perceive ourselves. While experiencing turmoil in our lives, many stigmatize mental illness and never seek help. Interestingly, I have discovered that when we are going through these challenging periods in our lives, professional help is essential.

How do you get from feeling anxious, depressed, or simply overwhelmed, to feeling good and performing well at your job, with your academics, or in your relationships? By taking two evidence-based treatments (cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy) and adding a warm, supportive, and experienced therapist, the result can be major, positive change. As a therapist who has been working in these modes for over ten years, I have seen these changes first hand, witnessing the personal growth that brings with it a fulfilling life and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you as you build the life you want.

I am a doctor of clinical social work, board certified in oncology care, whose goal it is to provide a compassionate space for therapy. In my many years of experience in cancer care in a healthcare setting, my work has afforded me the opportunity to support individuals, families, and loved ones through life threatening and life-limiting illness, trauma, grief, loss, existential distress, and the search for meaning in the face of adversity. In life, there is suffering for us all in different ways and we can perhaps find meaning in the pain, purpose in the loss, and comfort through the journey.

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 Hastings on Hudson 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.
