I am trained in exposure (ERP), brainspotting, somatic therapy, attachment-based therapy, CBT, and ACT to treat a variety of issues, including but not limited to PTSD, anxiety, OCD, depression, relationship issues, and grief.
Not accepting new clients at this time. Through compassion, understanding, psychoeducation, and keeping an open mind we will work together to find your pathway to healing. We will explore issues that you are facing and how they are impacting you, and possibly others around you. My philosophy is a positive relationship between client and therapist can help in the healing process, revealing your strengths and abilities and encouraging finding the best version of yourself and loving life again.

Despite our strengths we can feel stuck, unable to move forward with a life that aligns with our goals and values. We often continue using coping skills that were once helpful but now no longer help move us through the more challenging and unexpected issues in our lives. Together we identify these familiar yet unproductive styles of coping with compassion. I use techniques that approach difficult thoughts and feelings without fearing, fighting or running from them while being able to address them with acceptance .

To that end I have found Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (pronounced " act ") to be extremely effective.
I seek to create a nurturing, compassionate environment where clients feel safe and supported as they negotiate the difficulties of life. I consider it an honor that people trust me with these painful aspects of their lives. It's a privilege to travel this portion of the road of life with an individual or couple. Whether folks need help to sort out a difficult decision, a work situation, depression, anxiety, or marital difficulties, my goal is to honor and respect each individual's struggle. My belief, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." - Plato

My most important values include authenticity, gratitude, mindfulness, acceptance , loving-kindness, self-growth and increasing self-awareness/consciousness.
I have over 25 years experience helping people with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, trauma, hopelessness, addiction and relationship issues. I provide compassionate, strengths-based, individualized care with day time, evening and weekend appointments available. Passion for families, adolescents, parents and the LGBTQ+ population has fueled my life's work to help people get through difficult times or just explore how to improve on what is already working. Becoming our best selves takes work; work that I have been doing in my own life and with others for decades.

To supplement a trauma-informed practice, I utilize CBT, Brainspotting, ACT , DBT, narrative, and solution-focused therapies when supporting a client.
My counseling philosophy is grounded in trauma-informed practices, meaning I value collaboration, empowerment, and emotional and physical safety above all else. In time, clients will gain a richer understanding of themselves while working towards self-determined goals. I am especially attuned to those experiencing LGBT issues, trauma, and depression, as well as various non-monogamous relationships and organizing for social justice. As a social worker and through lived experience, I am highly aware of the daily social, institutional, and communal injustices that impact different historically oppressed people.

I am certified in clinical mental health counseling by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) and have been trained in many therapeutic interventions, but I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
Have you gone through your life feeling insecure or with a nagging belief that you’re just not good enough? Have you experienced an upsetting event that you just can't seem to get past? If anxiety, depression, stress or relationship problems make your daily life difficult to manage, you need solutions! My clients come seeking new ways to think about and respond to difficult emotions and ways to change unhelpful behaviors or habits. Together we identify coping skills and strategies to build their resilience while finding purpose and meaning in their everyday lives.

Methods I incorporate include therapy from models such as ACT , CAM, CBT, Client Centered, DBT, EFT, and Hypnotherapy.
My belief is that we all want peace in our lives. My passion is to help those seeking services to find the peace they desire. Peace can have a different meaning to each one of us. For some peace may be accomplished by giving up an unwanted habit or creating new healthy habits, reducing stress, anxiety, depression and yet for others it could be healing from past trauma.

I work collaboratively with individuals with OCD, anxiety, phobias, tic, and BFRBs. I provide ethical and evidence-based services by immersing myself in continuing education and training led by up-to-date research in order to provide focused care for individuals with issues in these specific areas. It takes a great deal of bravery to walk into a therapist's office -and- research says working with a therapist is essential in successfully addressing these diagnoses. My role is to honor that bravery with care, acceptance , and options toward the changes you want to see.

Is everything “too much” and “not enough” and “literally you can’t even” and “you don’t know” and “maybe you should talk to someone”, but also “you feel like you should be able to handle it on your own so forget it”? Okay, well, first, just because you CAN handle it on your own, doesn’t mean you have to. That’s where I come in. I believe that you can handle it too. And sometimes, when it feels like life has been doing it’s damnedest to take you out, you need someone in your corner to remind you what tools are available, which muscles need to be strengthened, or that it’s okay to just take a nap and try again tomorrow.

As humans, we all experience times when life feels too heavy to carry and navigate alone. While people enter counseling relationships for a variety of reasons, I believe the main goal is to achieve and maintain a sense of balance, with appropriate and successful ways of coping with challenging and heavy times. As a counselor, I have the honor of walking alongside clients on their journey to discover a sense of balance, empowered to handle challenges and experience the joys of their day-to-day lives.

Most people have been unsuccessful when they tried to change problematic behavior. I help you trouble shoot roadblocks and find more effective ways to success. I start with an intake interview to better understand your experiences, what has been helpful in the past, what has not been helpful in the past, and what may be most helpful in the future. I conduct motivational interviews to discover more about your readiness for change. Then, I meet you where you are in order to increase the likelihood of your success. I incorporate evidenced-based treatment protocols into your plan and evaluate progress on an on-going basis.

What I love about counseling is it's ability to lead to epiphanies that then change the way we live our lives. It replaces muddled confusion and a foggy mind with clarity - a sense of which direction to take things. In my opinion, counseling is worth every penny - it saves years of heartache and distress by helping us learn lessons in life that may have taken years (and many trials and errors) to figure out on our own. It can also restore hope and healing in our lives, in areas we had long ago accepted there was none.

You have already accomplished 2 big steps; you realize that you might need help with something in your life and you have started looking at options for help. Please, give yourself credit for those 2 big steps. The next step, picking a therapist to make an appointment will take more courage and energy. You may feel like you don't have the energy or ability to do it, but take one more step. You may feel too anxious and scared that something will go wrong if you call, but take one more step. Whether you call me or someone else. Take one more step. As therapists, we aren't here to judge or criticize you, we are here to help you.

I am offering both tele-therapy and in-person services at this time. I have seen the flexibility that tele-therapy provides in allowing clients to more easily access services. I continue to offer a therapeutic space where you can slow down and consider more deeply the relational patterns in your life. I have found that many of my clients benefit from this approach and are more likely to sustain a mindful and flexible approach to change in life.

Maybe you have been wondering why it takes so much effort to move through your day. Are you exhausted from the seemingly never-ending worry nagging at you, your life becoming increasingly smaller in the effort to contain the worry? Perhaps your feelings have been so confusing or overwhelming that you have tried to cope in harmful ways. You're struggling with unhealthy behaviors, anxiety, depression, and guilt about even having these feelings in the first place. You feel stuck. You're not sure how to get unstuck, but you know that you do want to learn to feel better.

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 Tulsa 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.
