I use skills from Acceptance Commitment Therapy and EMDR.
One of my favorite poems is "The Man in the Arena" by Theodore Roosevelt. He writes,"...who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly," It takes bravery to come to therapy and to face our vulnerabilities. And when we have to face our inner critic and the ways in which we face our own world, it is important for us to feel connected and grounded. I will listen to you as well as validate your feelings; Together we can work towards the connection and self-compassion that you deserve. Let's work together!

I use mindfulness approaches to help clients think and act with greater self-control and heightened awareness, and cognitive therapy to understand the impact of thoughts and feelings.
Sam has been doing therapy since 2008 in his home country of Australia and in the United States. His main goal is to help clients feel safe and comfortable in what can be a difficult process. Anyone can get stuck in painful or distressing cycles, and Sam works with clients to identify new options and pathways. With couples and families, Sam helps clients move from feeling hurt and stuck to feeling safe and connected.

Therapy often starts with relearning and practicing trust and acceptance .
I like to come at therapy kind of like I would a drummer at a jam session. I'm there to find a groove with another voice. I want to communicate with you and help you to open up and learn to express yourself. We will seek understanding first and then we will find a way to encourage healing and growth that is unique to you and builds a stronger identity. I am strengths-based and I like to find existing skills to help a client build a new way of thinking and interacting with their body. This is also a very effective way of beginning the process of healing symptoms of PTSD in conjunction with other evidence based trauma treatments.

I draw from a variety of modalities including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Commitment and Acceptance Therapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, play-based therapies, and Trauma-Focused CBT.
I believe that you carry the wisdom you need to direct your own life. Therapy can shed light on what has been hidden from view and help you tap into your inner knowing. I honor your individual path and trust your knowing. I also believe that healing is a natural process that occurs under the right circumstances. My hope is to co-create that environment with each client to facilitate healing and growth.

I use various modalities such as CBT, Trauma-Focused CBT, ACT and DBT and work to find the modality that best suites the needs of those I'm helping.
I believe that despite life’s challenges and often because of these challenges every individual has their own unique capabilities and strengths. Every individual has worth and purpose. Difficult life circumstances and our own misperceptions can sometimes mask these truths, but I seek to help my clients remember them. Hope and healing can be found by drawing on the strengths within!

Hello there. My name is Karmen and I am the owner and a therapist at Magnolia Tree Counseling. I also write a blog about mental health issues under the name "The Compassionate Therapist."

I use a strength-based approach and I believe that each person I work with has the ability within themselves to heal, grown and find purpose by looking at what they value most. I am a genuine listener and I will walk along your journey with you.

I believe therapy should be collaborative, my role is to act as a guide for you as you navigate the journey to emotional wellness.
Do you feel stuck, lost or alone? Is it hard to function because of the weight of difficult thoughts and emotions? Do you have a chronic illness and feel like no one understands the emotional struggles that can bring? Do you feel like life is sometimes too much? All of these challenges can be overwhelming and challenging to deal with alone. It never hurts to have someone to talk to, especially someone who does their best to connect with you on an individual level.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Provo or for a Provo ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
