Seeking professional help is a significant and empowering personal decision. It’s an opportunity to sort through troubling thoughts and feelings, overcome obstacles, and search for new solutions and pathways for positive change and growth. It’s an acknowledgement of the desire and need to look at one’s life from a different perspective. I believe one of the most important components for guiding clients through this process is the establishment of a supportive, compassionate, and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship. Within this framework, I strive to offer understanding, reassurance, acceptance , and hope.

I provide a space where respect, trust, empathy and acceptance create a positive therapeutic alliance.
The therapeutic space provides the opportunity to reflect and grow. It allows us to know ourselves in a deeper level and to reach our potential. In addition, it provides a safe and non-discriminatory place to observe and honor our genuine self. Within that safe environment you may access therapeutic strategies and information that will help you face, in a positive and proactive way, the challenges of life.

Are you struggling to create meaning or purpose in life? Are you feeling stuck -- unable to make decisions or move forward? Do you tend to feel lonely or misunderstood? Know that you are not alone. These are dilemmas most everyone wrestles with at one time -- or many times throughout life. My passion is to join with clients in the exploration of these issues and the vast spectrum of others that may be connected and entangled within. It can be difficult to untangle these knots, but the work can lead you to emotional freedom, fulfillment, and acceptance .

Our life experiences can interfere with the trust we have in ourselves, leaving us with thoughts like “I don’t know what I want”, or “I don’t deserve XYZ”. This is especially true for those of us who have experienced trauma, have lived through difficult circumstances, have endured abuse in childhood, and who are struggling to survive in oppressive systems. In our work together, I hope that we will establish a trusting relationship over time, and that you will be empowered to move towards the life you envision for yourself. You’re capable and worthy, and it’s all possible.

An increasing amount of people are experiencing stress, anxiety, and other uncomfortable emotions regarding the current state of our world. Now more than ever, it is especially important to take care of our emotional health as well as our physical. There are many different approaches to therapy and it is not “one size fits all.” As a therapist with extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I integrate this theory with other treatment modalities to help address a wide range of issues. Most importantly, I focus on building a strong interpersonal bond with each of my clients through curiosity, understanding, and compassion.

Perhaps it feels that your core self is lost and you anxiously float through life as a mere observer. Do you long to access your internal compass with increased agency? Distressing experiences may result in your feeling disconnected, fragmented & struggling to make sense of your identity or existence. Wish you were more flexible and open with a resilient rudder? Maybe your inner world is complicated and creative; it’s either a secret refuge or an elaborate maze. Somewhere inside parts of you hide but need to connect & process challenges with confidence. If your whole being longs to be understood and grow, reach out.

The life we live and the life we want do not always match up. Funny enough, life some times gets in the way of the life we want. I believe that we can live an authentic life with meaningful connections that makes suffering through hard stuff worth it. A person is more than their problems, thoughts, and feelings. I like to work with individuals on figuring out what kind of life they want, and how to persist through tough times to achieve it.

Most of life's difficulties we humans experience can be made better by doing something different. What needs to be different is at the center of therapy. Learning how to give up old behaviors in favor of new, more healthy actions, goes hand in hand with operating differently. Often when we attempt to live differently, negative emotions will kick in that cause us to cling to the old ways. Having someone understand you and these emotions will enhance and smooth out the process of evolving into the person you want to be.

You did it! You took a very important and BIG first step, which took courage and strength which is all we need for this next part. If you are feeling fatigued by COVID, depressed, anxious, experiencing relationship stress, job challenges, and perhaps eating and drinking to 'help', you have come to the right place, and YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Therapy often leads to a significant reduction of feelings of distress, as well as facilitating resolution of specific problems and better interpersonal relationships. I have years of experience to help you get more 'tools' in your toolbox so you can learn to cope with life's up and downs better.

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 West Lake Hills 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.
