I treat individuals by utilizing elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I consider it to be an honor and a privilege to be a part of each individual’s healing and journey through therapy. I believe in the importance of creating a strong therapeutic relationship between myself and my clients. I strive to create such a relationship by treating each client with unconditional positive regard and empathy. Seeking and asking for help can be difficult especially if you have ever felt invalidated or unheard. I aim to support my clients in expressing their needs and becoming their authentic self and creating a meaningful, purposeful life.

Acceptance and Commitment Theory, mindfulness, equine-facilitated development, integrative nutrition, and plant and earth-based technology inform and guide my work as a therapist and coach.
I believe in every person's ability to learn, change, and grow. I can support your journey of exploration and discovery that can lead to life-changing insight. A greater understanding of oneself and how to navigate the ups and downs of life is within reach. Meaningful reflection can help find the clarity needed to successfully manage personal, or professional, difficulties. With knowledge, tools, and intention life can be transformed, a more authentic self can be realized, and life can be aligned with what's important and made more meaningful.

Welcome! Typically, I work with clients who are struggling with traditional behavioral health concerns such as anxiety, depression/grief, stress, relationship concerns & life transitions. As a trained health psychologist, I also work with clients who are struggling with issues such as sleep disturbance, high blood pressure/cholesterol, migraine/tension headaches, pain & newly diagnosed illness. For some, there is an intersection between physical & emotional health. When this is the case, I welcome collaboration with any treating specialists. I find that clients are best served when providers work together for your benefit.

Teenagers are my specialty, especially those wanting nothing to do with counseling! (Download my article "Why Teens Hate Therapy" on website.) I help teens (children, too) who are anxious, angry, defiant, withdrawn, moody, self-destructive, inattentive, depressed, doing poorly in school, or having trouble with peers. I work as effectively with boys as with girls, and can help you decide whether the problems you're noticing are a part of "typical" teen behavior or a sign of something more serious. I also offer one session consultations for parents who have questions about their kids or new parenting approaches.

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 Exton 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.
