Through mindfulness training, reversal of negative thinking, alongside acceptance commitment therapy will we challenge our thoughts and feelings.
I work well with clients whom are seeking to improve their quality of life. If there’s ever a moment where one maybe feeling a void, emptiness inside of them I assist and facilitate clients through rediscovery of self. The concept of being fully aware of oneself and how you see the world is crucial to identifying and upholding your personal values and standards. It’s when we neglect our standards of living do we find conflict or that internal battle. Most of the time this happens when a life stressor occurs. My ideal client is one whom is ready to move from victim to survivor.

Are you (or your child or adolescent) feeling irritable or tired? Are you having trouble sleeping, concentrating, or simply making it through each day? Perhaps those in your household are wrestling with feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, or social isolation. First and foremost, you aren't alone. And believe it or not, what you or your family members are struggling with may be rooted in grief and loss, trauma, or even shame. Environmental stress, the death of a loved one, changes in physical health, divorce or relationship loss, and day-to-day life transitions can thrust anyone into an emotional and physical tailspin.

Often in life we can find ourself in a place of distress, darkness, chaos and feel like there is nobody that understands or cares. Sometimes you are the parent of the child that is always kicked out of school, or you painfully watch your child go through something you know is just so upsetting but you are not able to help. Maybe you are told you are just not enough so much that you have started to believe it. I am a prescriptive therapist with a vast array of skills and training ready to set some goals and work to help you make change happen.

You've been holding your breath and struggling to keep things together. You’re tired of hoping others won’t realize how nervous you are or how out of place you feel. You’re constantly tired and just getting through the day is a struggle. Instead of enjoying the life that comes from your hard work, you find yourself isolated from family or looking for comfort in the bottom of a bottle. You're restless, irritable, can’t think straight, and tired of feeling like a failure. You're tired of wondering what the hell is going on inside of you. You want real, meaningful change in your life and for your family. You just want to feel happy.

I’ve come to accept that during our lives, at some point (more accurately-multiple points), things will fall apart. At these crossroads, we have two options: let it sink and stunt us or courageously navigate through the challenging process of healing. I would argue that there is nothing more valuable than doing deep inner work that transforms our life for the better. I am a pre-licensed professional counselor and work with adolescents and adults across the lifespan experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship concerns, stress, and self-esteem concerns, among many other difficulties.

TRAUMA: A threatening experience that is too much, too fast. When stressed out or truly overwhelmed, our instinctual survival responses can be blocked. If unable to complete our body’s survival responses, trauma occurs and symptoms emerge. We can feel stuck in flight, fight or freeze. Negative feelings, thoughts, behaviors and stress disorders often lie within the mind-body connection. As one who facilitates healing from emotional, spiritual, and physical pain and suffering, I am dedicated to working compassionately, non-judgmentally and collaboratively with you to become "unstuck" and find a greater sense of healing and wholeness.

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Behavior Therapy, Biofeedback, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Image Transformation Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, TEAM-CBT, and TF-CBT to help people overcome anxiety, depression, ADHD, addiction, and trauma.
Anxiety exhausts, paralyzes, and overwhelms us. Depression leaves us feeling hopeless, worthless, and alone. ADHD can stifle our productivity while crushing our self-esteem. Addiction keeps us in bondage to that which will never truly satisfy. And marital and family relationships that were supposed to serve as secure bases can quickly become sources of tremendous pain and distress. You've tried to overcome these issues on your own but to no avail; you feel stuck and as though you've run out of options. But there is hope!

I provide a safe place with unconditional acceptance to explore your challenges and difficulties.
A starting point of CHANGE..."We can't solve our problems by using the same thinking we used when we created them."--Albert Einstein. It is true that we cannot always chose the events that happen or have happened to us. But we CAN chose consciously the interpretation we make about things that happen to us. Change begins when we accept ourselves "as is" and empower ourselves to overcome or cope with life's challenges. Change occurs when we stop believing negative thoughts about ourselves and the world around us and begin giving ourselves the love and acceptance that we desperately need and deserve.

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 Bartlett 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.
