Do you worry a lot, feel stressed, or overwhelmed all the time? Do you experience recurring unpleasant thoughts that impact your perception of the world or yourself? It might be exhausting to have a head full of racing ideas, but via therapy, we can try to free up some mental space. As a therapist, I have had the honor of helping patients who have a wide range of issues, such as stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I'm passionate about assisting people in overcoming the obstacles preventing them from engaging in more constructive self-talk, having a calmer mind, and living their best life.

I'm sorry to say that I'm not taking new clients at this time. Do you worry all the time or easily get stressed out? Do you feel panicky around others or when leaving home? Do you have fears that you would like to overcome? Do you have negative thoughts that you'd like to stop? Do you keep doing things over and over that seem senseless? Do you have physical symptoms when you're worried? Do you think you'll never get that job, spouse, house, or other goals? Do you put yourself down often? Do you have low energy? Low motivation? Procrastinate? Do you want improved relationships?

I work with people in all phases of life with a desire to work through transitions, explore within themselves, and enhance their relationships. Life stressors can impact each of us in different ways, and I believe that working with a therapist one trusts empowers people to make changes, shift their mindset, or sit at peace with challenging situations.

I grew up in the Capital Region but moved to the west coast to pursue my graduate education and ended up staying for twenty years. I recently moved back to the area and am excited to be living life at a slower pace. In the process of opening a new office space in downtown Troy where we will be able to offer not only therapy services but integrate other areas of wellness into each person's wellness plan. I am continuing to offer online sessions utilizing a HIPPA compliant video platform. Lastly, I do still offer a 30 minute free consultation to answer any questions and/or determine if you feel we would be a good fit.

Are you finding this time in your life is bringing more overwhelm, anxiety, sadness, anger or pain than it is joy? Does life feel very different than you imagined it would right now? Especially when our experience feels very different than what we had expected, it can bring up confusion, self doubt, & worst of all that deep down voice-criticizing, putting us down and have us wondering is it just me? Big life changes, things such as starting college, getting married, pregnancy or new motherhood & more, have a way of bringing up some of these deeper held struggles and fears to surface.

I incorporate elements of ACT , ERP, and CBT through a trauma informed lens.
I am offering in person and virtual sessions. I'm a licensed mental health counselor and certified clinical trauma professional. When seeking therapy, I recognize that you are not a collection of symptoms, but a whole person with various factors affecting your wellbeing. I work to address these areas in a holistic way through a relational and somatic approach. Growth and change is achievable in even the most difficult circumstances. I will support you on that journey. Additionally, an important part of therapy is finding the right fit, so I offer a free full first session to determine if this is the right relationship.

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 Latham 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.
