I work from a wide range of therapeutic lenses, Solution-focused, Dialectical behavior therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Attachment, trauma-focused therapies, Gestalt, ACT , and psychodrama.
It takes an immense amount of strength and courage to reach out and take an active role in making changes in your life. I meet my clients where they are and understand that you are the expert of your own life. Sometimes things can get so overwhelming that we need someone to help us navigate through the storm of emotions and through life’s challenges. I greatly value collaborative and strengths-based approaches as I feel that everyone possesses the ability to use those strengths to heal and evolve.

Dan Siegel speaks of COAL (curiosity, openness, acceptance , and love.
There is much talk these days about the power of being vulnerable as popularized by transformative figures such as Brené Brown. I believe it is important work to unearth what activates our vulnerability, shame, and fear, but what deeply excites me is what may happen beyond these revelations. What do we do next, armed with knowledge of our metaphorical Achilles' heel? How do we move forward with courage, optimism, fortitude, and resolve? This is where I bring a robust skill set and personal strengths to the table to work alongside you on your healing path.

It is a privilege to witness personal growth and be present with a person as they evolve. Providing a safe, confidential, collaborative, and supportive atmosphere, to work through identified problem areas is crucial to success. Managing negative patterns of thinking and behaving allows one to flourish on an interpersonal level, emotionally, and in the context of all relationships.

I have been working with adolescents and young adults for over 16 years. I work with teens and college students who are dealing with anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, ODD, disordered eating, phobias, suicidal ideation, relationship issues, addition issues, or family conflict. This post pandemic and post virtual schooling world has created many challenges for kids these days especially having to come back into the world after being isolated. My therapeutic relationship with the kids I see is based on authenticity and genuineness and not a formal therapist in a suit taking notes.

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 Doylestown 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.
