I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), which focuses on experiencing the present moment and our own emotions without judgment, and with empathy.
I am an experienced psychologist who helps adolescents and adults overcome a variety of mental health and life challenges. I enjoy working with a variety of clients and am interested in figuring out how you and I can work together as a team, regardless of your reason for seeking therapy. I specialize in adolescent and adult survivors of abuse and trauma. This includes childhood abuse, sexual abuse/assault, complex PTSD, and medical trauma. Another specialty of mine is chronic pain and illness, including syndromes that are difficult to diagnose and treat. I also particularly enjoy working with folks in the LGBTQ+ community.

I use an integral approach incorporating Mindfulness Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Somatic Psychotherapy, Narrative Therapy and Psychosynthesis.
I help a wide range of clients: those seeking personal growth as well as those moving through depression, anxiety, betrayal, grief, career and life transitions or interpersonal tensions or conflicts. I assist individuals, couples and leaders during times of conflict or life/career transition to move with intention toward new possibilities. When a client is feeling stuck or struggling to pay attention to "what matters most", we work in a collaborative way to recognize underlying obstacles to their well-being and identify practical actions to move them forward.

I help people develop mindful self-compassion, self- acceptance , and non-judgmental awareness, while also working with them to clarify what matters most to them.
As a therapist, I work with my clients to help them move toward a fulfilling, connected, and meaningful life. As human beings, we each have core yearnings to belong, to feel our experience is meaningful, and to know our lives matter. Unfortunately, because life sometimes involves emotional, psychological, social, and physical pain we can get stuck in patterns that don’t serve us. I help people to stop doing the things that move them away from the kind of life they most want, and to start taking the kinds of steps that lead them toward who they most want to be.

Life is a journey, and you are struggling to find your way. Together, we can help you get back on track. Perhaps you have found that you got knocked off the comfortable path you once knew. While you thought you were headed toward or maybe reached a certain destination, everything is now different and you aren't sure in which direction to head. Together we can work to reorient you and open up to possibilities you may never even imagined existed. Change, be it for the good or not, is often challenging to maneuver on our own. Psychotherapy can help.

No matter what background we come from life tends to bring its own suffering and difficulties. I view therapy as a place where challenges and painful emotions can be confronted in a safe and caring environment. My personality is warm and empathetic, and I aim to provide a place where clients feel heard, cared for, and listened to. I view clients as being the author of their own lives. Thus, I aim to be collaborative and to help come up with goals that are important and meaningful to you. My style is action oriented, and I try to push clients out of their comfort zones, through the use of mindfulness and behavioral changes.

I believe that with some courage, commitment, and hope, we can do great things and I am passionate about helping my clients realize their worth and how strong and resilient they really are. I understand that what is hurting you may also be protecting you, and that letting go is no easy feat. I'm here though, to hold your hand, cheer you on, and remind you that you can do this.

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 Plymouth Meeting 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.
