Some of the modalities I weave into our work include accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy, attachment theory, acceptance and commitment therapy, internal family systems therapy, narrative techniques, and mindfulness.
Most of the people I work with are adults whose anxiety, depression, and trauma have become barriers in their everyday lives and identities. Many of them have worked hard to appear as if they have it all together. But, the fear of failure or being found out as a fraud stalls the deep connections they desire with themselves and others. I often find that what my clients believe are innate flaws in their character are actually normal coping responses that were once protective, but are no longer helpful.

I use evidence-based practice models that are Person Centered and Strengths Based, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness, and Solution Focused (SFT).
Seeking therapy can be difficult, and it can be hard to talk about issues with debilitating symptoms. As a Licensed Master Social Worker, my goal is to meet you where you are, build a strong therapeutic relationship, and develop treatment plans that are specific to you as an individual. I work with adults (17+) with anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD. I have experience with medical social work, managing chronic pain and illnesses, grief, suicide prevention, and military and veteran populations. If you are struggling, I want to make sure you get the therapy and interventions you need to make positive changes in your life.

I offer individual counseling to women who are trying to start a family, pregnant women, new moms and women already raising a family. Motherhood is filled with moments of excitement and true elation but can also raise feelings of anxiety, fear, vulnerability, doubt and depression. It is more common than you think to experience these feelings of distress during or after pregnancy. This is nothing to be ashamed of. It is not your fault.

It can be a hard decision to begin counseling, and it often takes a lot of courage to seek help. Feeling depressed, anxious or frightened is not a good way to go through life, so perhaps it is time to make some changes.

Many of us have been through a hard and highly emotional time over the last few years. Are you having difficulty managing the resulting anxiety or fear? Maybe you're having trouble sleeping, eating, or caring for yourself or others. Are you grieving the loss of a loved one? Has there been a traumatic event in your life that feels particularly painful just now? What I have learned is that in the midst of the hard things that life throws at us, ultimately we want to be seen, heard, and accepted.

Sometimes we find ourselves at a crossroads, stuck, not sure of which way to turn or even how we got there. Exploring those stuck points with someone who creates a safe environment for you to get to know yourself better, and grow towards emotional intelligence, happiness, and peace of mind can be the life transformation you are seeking.

As a licensed professional counselor, I feel my job is to help individuals generate creative solutions to problem areas in life, while providing support and empowerment. I believe that every human deserves the right to have a life that is worth living. Sometimes outside help is needed to generate that life. I strive to work with clients on gaining a better understanding of themselves and their behaviors, pull from their strengths, find courage to face discomfort and change, and free themselves of any emotional burdens. We will set realistic goals together and work to remove internal/external barriers to these.

Believe it or not...this is a FUN process. The most important aspect of counseling is to attain the goals you identify. You are the expert in your own life. I am comfortable working with clients who have identified almost any problem area but specifically I am well trained in treating anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and problems in the social and family environment. I work on the goals you identify rather than my opinion of what you should work on. This makes me a very non-judgmental personal and I develop strong positive relationships with my clients.

A child (all ages) goes from a less structured environment (home) to school. This can be a challenge on so many levels. The system is desiring for conformity and the child does not wish to leave it's creativity side. So teaching those special kids (all ages) to navigate their own forest of confusion. Their issues are many at so many levels, feeling lost, unaccepted and ultimately not valued. This harms their self worth, identity, and perception of how they fit in or whether they fit in at all. They want to discern on how to find those who they need to fit in with. This is a life long process of the search.

I’m passionate about meeting people where they are by providing crisis management, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and solution-focused therapy.
Life can be challenging at times, and sometimes you feel there’s no end in sight. Trust me; I get it. For some, seeking support seems like climbing Mount Everett; however, I’m ready to take that walk with you. We can change the current stories that narrate your life by walking together. Everything you need to “be the first you” while changing the narrative is within you. In working together, you’re never alone on this journey. The answers you seek are within you, and you discover them with guidance and within a safe space.

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 Aiken 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.
