I use a strengths based perspective with strategies from acceptance and commitment therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness strategies.
'Hope' (noun): To desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence. What do you hope for? I think deep down we all hope for similar things; peace, joy, love, excitement, and fulfilling relationships. When we experience depression, anxiety, trauma, stressful life circumstances, parenting challenges or relationship difficulties we can end up feeling hopeless and alone. My goal as a therapist is to help you rediscover your hopes and dreams and make a plan to achieve them! I will do this by providing a safe space to process what has gotten in your way and helping you identify what changes can be made.

I utilize acceptance and commitment therapy ( ACT ) to help people stop avoiding or denying their inner emotions while working to accept their deeper feelings to move forward in their lives in a manner consistent with their values.
Have you found yourself avoiding certain places, conversations, or situations? Do you no longer engage in hobbies or activities you once enjoyed? Do you feel detached from others, or find it difficult to experience happiness and satisfaction? Are you having nightmares or difficulty sleeping? First responders have a front row seat to the best and worst of humanity. This can take a toll on you in a variety of ways. Sometimes images from calls keep returning. Hypervigilance and cumulative stress can leave you feeling restless, irritable, or fatigued. This can lead to resentment and negative beliefs about yourself and the world.

Therapy is a place to explore, grow and develop the skills necessary to navigate life’s challenges. Why put on a false front in life? Why smile on the outside when you can’t smile on the inside? Each day may feel like a struggle or feel like there is a cloud over your head. I specialize in anxiety, depression and mood disorders, and understand that our behaviors are a direct result of internal issues. Let me help you feel like you can cope with life again and give you a congruent feeling.

I help people that are feeling anxious and depressed, feel less anxious and depressed. Your mind replays the past and dwells on the future, sending you into panic or making it hard to get out of bed. Your stomach is queasy, your neck is tight, and you feel like you can never quite relax. It feels like others don't see or trust the challenges you face and the effort you actually put in to just get by. You feel uncomfortable in your own skin and unaccepted wherever you go and crave a place that you can truly be yourself, un-judged and appreciated for your unique ideas and qualities. We are going to figure this out together.

Have you been impacted by problematic relationships, infidelity, or sex addiction? You might feel lost, betrayed, and alone. Do you ask yourself, "How do I keep ending up in these relationships?". Are you afraid to be alone even when your partner is clearly unhealthy? Core beliefs are the foundation of our being but when they cause us pain, embarrassment, and shame we can become depressed, anxious, fake, and withdrawn. Do you compare yourself to others (I call this Comparanoia)? Do you tell yourself “I am stupid”, “I am worthless”, or “I am not good enough”? If so, then your core beliefs may be contributing to your pain today.

In a world that can often feel heavy with forces pushing and pulling us downward in so many directions it can feel all too easy to lose track of your true self. Feeling confused and asking how did I get here? Or why me? Or, I just want to get back to myself. I don’t even know who I am anymore. You are not alone and there is a way. I work with individuals who struggle with these same questions. Questions that arise from the struggles with trauma, anxiety, depression, attention, autism, and others. My counseling services focus on addressing the integrated person.

My focus in therapy is on helping you create a life that you want to be present for, whatever that means to you. If you don't know, that's ok too (and you're in good company). We can figure it out together. I emphasize a nonjudgmental approach that focuses on balancing acceptance and change. I often work with people who are dissatisfied with their lives because they have high emotional sensitivity and difficulty managing their behaviors, emotions, and relationships as a result. We can work together to both understand and change your unhelpful patterns and help you learn to accept yourself just as you are.

I draw from SE, ACT , and DBT to provide tangible skills to support my clients.
Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unmotivated? Like something's off that you can't quite put your finger on? Maybe a recent stressor has left you spiraling or something from your past won't stay buried and you are looking for relief from the weight of your emotions. Therapy can be a refuge where you can feel safe to be vulnerable, fully seen, and heard. Beginning counseling is a courageous step towards growth and healing. A journey that you don't have to go on alone. Together we will co-create a safe space to explore what is holding you back and what you need to move forward with greater confidence and purpose.

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 Port Orchard 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.
