Thankfully, you don't have to travel the world to find self- acceptance .
What is your story? It's common to have a running narrative about who you are in this world. We use certain words to describe ourselves, like “I’m shy.” “I’m an anxious person.” “I’m bad at dating.” While these stories are based on real experiences, they can also hold power over our self-esteem, our decision-making, and our relationships. I too have suffered from a limiting self-concept. I even traveled the world on solo backpacking trips in an effort to "find myself." What I came home with was the firm belief that the seed of change lies in self- acceptance .

Using evidenced based practices, mainly from ACT ( Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) I work from a wellness perspective.
Symptoms of depression, anxiety, OCD, chronic pain, loneliness can be difficult and frightening. Those symptoms can feel so overwhelming that it’s hard to imagine having a “real life” while any of these difficult emotions is present. Knowing that something is missing is the first step. Naming the people and things you want to feel more connected to – friends, a romantic partner, learning, meaningful work – is the beginning of the change. Figuring out how to shift both perspective and actions to better match the life you're living to the life you imagine you can have, is where the change starts to feel real. Because it is.

Too often, we limit ourselves and our potential. We find ourselves held captive by painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. We get "stuck." And it manifests in all sorts of painful experiences, including but not limited to, feelings of hopelessness, overwhelm, loneliness, worry, self-doubt, and low self-esteem, to name a few. And believe me, I know you have valiantly fought to unburden yourself from these painful experiences, becoming frustrated and exhausted along the way. My aim is to join you in your efforts towards meaningful change, offering a space for you to feel safe and open, so that we can together help you get "unstuck."

My ideal client is someone open to the process of therapy. Someone who is willing to show up for themselves, and “put in the work”. My client may be someone dealing with anxiety, depression, or challenges of ADHD, such as Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria. My client may be feeling in a rut or “stuck” in personal aspects of their life. My client may be challenged by different phases and stages of life, by not feeling capable or feeling easily overwhelmed. They want to engage in therapy and work on achieving their personal goals in a space where they are seen, heard, validated and encouraged.

Traumatic events and panic attacks feel unbearable. Overcoming these challenges with guidance and compassion is critical.

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 Haverford 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.
