Choosing a therapist that you connect with is often the most important aspect to successful therapy. It can be daunting to find the right fit and scary to expose yourself. To foster our therapeutic relationship, I will strive to create a relaxed space to explore your thoughts, emotions, relationships, and experiences. The core of my relational style is authentic and warm, and I will adapt to your personality and pace, so you feel supported rather than pushed. I seek to assist individuals and couples in achieving deeper, more fulfilled and satisfied relationships and connections with both themselves and the people around them.

Accepting new clients with immediate openings “If you don’t heal what hurt you, you will bleed on people who didn’t cut you” My goal is to provide the support you may otherwise feel you are lacking as you walk through life. Many times, we struggle on our own and feel like no one will understand, so we don’t talk about it. We move on and hope that it just gets better or we hold it all in and go down a destructive path because we don’t want to burden our friends and family. I strive to be that positive support you can count on when you feel no one will listen or understand.

You're here. That takes courage. The next step might take even more. Our life experiences can lead us to doubt ourselves, delay important decisions, and avoid taking steps we know, at our cores, offer us an opportunity to set a more hopeful path forward. I hear you and I want you to know that even though I don't know you yet, I care about you. I care about what brought you here. I care about what happens next. I can be here to support you when your anxious thoughts make you afraid, when your sadness feels paralyzing, or when you feel alone with all of these overwhelming, but very human emotions. Today is an opportunity.

My desire is to help others make the best decisions they can, both for themselves and for their unique situations. We all get stuck at various points in our lives and need a different perspective, new education, or a sounding board for our thoughts & emotions. For those who have a specific diagnosis, I'd like to help educate you about your challenges and advantages (yes, there can be positives too!). When we learn how our brain works, we can find solutions to overcome individual obstacles, strengthen relationships, and pursue a greater sense of peace.

Healing happens within relationship. That has been my personal experience and my primary focus in the counseling relationship. I strongly believe that we are all doing the best that we can at any given moment. However we are managing to cope, having a trusting and safe place to be is essential. My first task in any counseling relationship is to establish and build upon that safe place. As the counseling relationship builds and strengthens, we will collaboratively develop a plan for meeting your goals. I will work to gently guide you in growing and sustaining compassion and care for yourself during that process.

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”-Shannon Alder. Is that normal? Why do I do this to myself? Why can't I just accept it and move on? When do I get the old "me" back? And how many therapists do I need to see before I get better? Questions like these can eat away at us for years, robbing us of the joy and serenity we crave. We all deserve to find the answers, but first we may come to realize that we need to take hard looks at ourselves.

I believe that one of the most important things we can do on this earth, is to let people know they are not alone. At one point or another we have all experienced moments of hardship and discord. Having someone there with us to navigate through the chaos and emotions of the experience can make a difference in how we cope with the events. Not only that but it can ultimately help us build resilience. Whether you are seeking therapy for depression, anxiety, life transitions, or perhaps you are seeking to regain some balance and clarity, together we can explore your needs and work towards resolution.

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 Moon Township 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.
