I infuse cognitive-behavioral elements from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness to increase clients' skills to cope with life.
**Now enrolling for Virtual Parent Coaching: See "Groups" below** I am a clinical psychologist specializing in cognitive-behavior therapy and applied behavior analysis. Since 1996 I've worked with individuals of all ages affected by Autism. I have worked in several school systems and I am currently the clinical adviser for a young adult transition program for individuals with Autism. In addition to my focus on Autism, I also work with individuals struggling with Technology Dependence or Addiction. I see local clients in my office or via secure video conferencing.

Are you or your adolescent looking for the strength and courage to address difficult life situations? Do you not know where to begin? I know it can be difficult to ask for help. However, once that first step is taken with the right therapist, who appreciates and respects you as an individual, positive attainment of your goals can be achieved. I approach my work as a therapist with empathy, acceptance , compassion, and mutual respect. When working with adolescents I make it a requirement to involve the parents and provide them with frequent updates on their child.

By providing a therapeutic relationship based on genuineness, empathy, and unconditional acceptance , I can help you unearth your true self and your true potential, while understanding what lies beneath the feelings that led you to this page.
Good therapy is an exploration of the self. People seek therapy to manage that which ails them, whether it be anxiety, depression, phobias, etc. Yet these are merely symptoms, and good therapy seeks the discovery of their root cause so that true healing may begin.

Each person & couple is unique therefore, my approach is integrative, emphasizing modern evidence-based treatments such as ACT or DBT.
When we are deeply and mindfully connected to our values, the path to a fulfilling life becomes more clear. There's no better place than a trusted therapy environment to establish and strengthen that connection. Together we'll explore and set specific goals, using a collaborative approach, incorporated with warmth and humor while tapping into modalities that work best for you. Whether that be mindfulness and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD, understanding how past traumas influence your relationships, or any other number of techniques proven to create real, meaningful change in your life.

I hope to facilitate an atmosphere of acceptance and non-judgment.
My goal as a therapist is to help my clients gain insight into themselves and their experience. Through the course of therapy, emotional healing can occur and self-empowerment can be found. I have helped many people with anxiety, depression, and other mental health difficulties. Sometimes just having someone to talk to about life can help. I stand here with outstretched arms.

Are you a parent desperate to find your child the support they need to manage their emotions? Children have a lot on their plates, now more than ever. Navigating parenting with today's fast-paced lifestyle, technology and everything else that comes along with parenting is hard! The children I work with often struggle with excess anxiety, low self-esteem, peer conflict or behavioral issues (i.e., not following directions, hyperactivity in school). Parents and teachers are often at a loss for how to help. I work with the parents, teachers and any relevant caregivers, giving you the tools you need to enjoy time with your child again.

Trying to pick the right therapist can be a challenge. You can think of our first meeting more like a conversation, where we will go over what you are experiencing and how I can help you materialize your goals, values, and priorities. I offer a safe, comfortable, and compassionate space where we can explore how to reduce your suffering and help you get to where you want to be. For years, I have made it my purpose to help others resolve their internal pain and heartache. Although I tailor my approach for each client, I tend to consistently utilize psychodynamic, gestalt, DBT, and narrative theoretical orientations.

Can’t seem to turn your brain off and stop worrying? Are you constantly overthinking? Are you playing the same events over and over in your mind? Always concerned about saying or doing the right thing? Inside you may be feeling on-edge and nervous, and struggling with doubts and fears can be so tiring, which makes it harder to cope. It can seem like a never-ending cycle where trying to control everything just makes you feel more restless and out of control.

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 Huntington 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.
