The world can be a scary, lonely, and intimidating place.

I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Internal Family Systems in sessions with my clients.
I have learned that suffering can occur when we get stuck in rules, judgements, and faulty beliefs about ourselves and others. Being stuck often prevents us from connecting with ourselves from a place of compassion, and it can keep us distant from the values that we want to uphold in life. This pain is often heightened when our sense of worthiness becomes entangled in this. Learning to connect with mind and body, learning to connect with and live out values, learning to practice psychological flexibility, and learning to practice self-compassion are often skills I work on with clients.

Do you notice your child often cries when you leave the room? Does your child struggle to complete developmentally appropriate tasks independently?

Are you feeling stressed or worried about an aspect of your life? Are you noticing that this aspect leads to you feeling misunderstood or unfulfilled in relationships? Making the decision to create change in your life and embrace all aspects of yourself can be a difficult decision to make, yet the rewards of doing so can allow for the growth that you are seeking. Creating change may mean coming out with your LGBTQ+ identity, forming or maintaining intimate relationships, communicating your emotions more effectively, living without depression or anxiety controlling you, or increasing positive thinking and proactive behaviors.

Life isn’t what you thought it would be. You thought you’d be happier and more fulfilled by now. You feel overwhelmed often, sleep doesn’t come easy even though your days start early. You doubt yourself and your ability to do what you’d really like to do, to feel the way you’d really like to feel. You know life can be better, but you feel STUCK and scared. You wish someone could explain why everything feels so painful, hard, and scary even while your life looks pretty good on the surface.

I was once asked, when will things stop going wrong and I will be in control of my life? This is a sentiment many of us share which can leave us struggling to get through the day. In today's ever changing world, we are all challenged to adapt. Working together, we will seek self understanding, explore new ways to cope, pursue increased internal control and self-esteem, and strive to become the better versions of ourselves. My response was that changing is constant. As we persevere and develop strengths we become stronger more capable. Things that go wrong become small bumps in the road versus the road blocks they once were.

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 Denton 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.
