I'm interested in working with clients who wish to liberate themselves from their past and live their best lives. My approach is to focus on trauma informed care using a range of therapies including EMDR, ego state/parts work, and clinical hypnosis. I also utilize 'third wave' mindfulness and acceptance informed therapy, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. This is a 'trans-diagnostic' approach to the problem of suffering, and the pursuit of valued and meaningful living.

I believe that we are all capable of transforming old beliefs into new freedoms, and of moving beyond the patterns we have developed in the past as a response to our surroundings.

My therapeutic approach involves acceptance and non-judgment.
Are you a teen or young adult in need of guidance navigating difficult emotions and life transitions; who struggles with depression or anxiety, connection to others, or could use a neutral perspective and someone to talk to? Are you the parent of a child who acts out, has difficulty in school or trouble with social relationships? Is your family having a hard time adapting to big life changes, such as divorce or loss. Everyone wants to feel safe and supported while going through challenges. I help kids, teens, and young adults explore different ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving to increase awareness and improve functioning.

I have a wide variety of experience and thirty years in the field utilizing several different modalities including Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Biomedical Therapy.
When you are moving in the right direction, the Universe cooperates. Most of us have set set goals or developed expectations for how we want to live our lives, but sometimes we get stuck along the way. We tend to think that we can sort out these complications on our own or by talking to a close friend. Therapy is an opportunity to tell your story to a professional asking the right questions, providing unbiased perspectives, or shining light on a dark place. I encourage clients to focus on the issues keeping them from experiencing contentment and satisfaction in life.

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 Ashland 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.
