It's alright to not know exactly what our challenges are, that's where I can come in. An ideal client is anyone who is willing to call and seek some help with their difficulties. It always helps to come in with an open mind, confidence, and willingness to learn about the process and themselves!

I started out my career practicing cognitive-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, and ACT .
I am a holistic, affirming therapist who sees many mental health challenges as survival strategies for a sick society rather than symptoms of a sick individual. I partner with each client to make sense of how you've navigated the world thus far. Then we'll work together to new ways of coping that go beyond surviving in an unjust world but toward thriving powerfully in your life and relationships.

I use an integrative approach and draw from Internal Family Systems, Acceptance & Commitment therapy, CBT and mindfulness.
I believe that lasting psychological change arises from two main components: awareness and choice. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a focus on motivation, I will cultivate a nurturing space to help you gain awareness of the patterns that prevent you from moving forward. If you are suffering from depression, anxiety, memories, or a mix of it all, you have probably noticed that it can feel difficult to keep going. Together we will decide how to create change in your life and find the will to make it happen.

Imagine yourself as a writer, carefully crafting the story of your life. What important events and experiences stand out, and what effect does your supporting cast have on you? Is your story unfolding the way you want it to? For most of us, the answers to these questions aren't always clear. We're often too entrenched in our own story to be our own author. Experiences such as relieving anxiety and developing a more loving relationship with yourself can be tough.

Depression and anxiety can touch us so deeply that we feel lost and hopeless. The world can be overwhelming and the challenges seem too hard. It does not have to be this way. Whether it's old pain you've avoided or present day situations, healing and change are possible.

Working with clients who are highly motivated to get change is often the secret to extraordinary results. Thus the focus of my practice centers on helping adults, children & parents who are ready to experience more ease & happiness, with less struggle & pain. Having the option to choose from a wide range of therapeutic modalities, including the remarkable 'brain-changing' technology of Neurofeedback, clients are able to make progress in multiple areas of their life, with better focus, motivation & organization. However, that is of limited value with change internally, to be happier, calmer & more in control of their lives.

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.

PERSONAL THERAPY... most any therapist will do if you only want to talk things out and have someone listen without judging. But if you are looking for more, my post-graduate training and advanced credentials in Rational-Emotive-Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), unlike most other therapists, empowers me to teach you how to effectively manage your stress, sleep, unhealthy emotions and self-defeating behaviors--something I've successfully done for myself and thousands of clients for more than 40 years.

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 Watervliet 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.
