I use evidence-based treatment including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Person Centered Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Since the pandemic started, we have had to stay at home, work from home, have our children at home, and make decisions for ourselves and our families regarding the safety of being vaccinated. The emotional struggles we face have become overwhelming. Those who are in unsafe situations have felt increasingly unsafe. We have seen our friends and neighbors struggling with racial injustice. I understand how frightening and hopeless things can seem. My goal is to create a safe place for my clients to share their pain, feel heard and validated, and be able to learn healthy coping skills to manage their challenges.

Hello, my name is Lee and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. However, before I was ever a therapist, I was a client. I’ve been lost in the world and needed help. It was hard to admit. So first, let me honor your courage in understanding you may benefit from support. I won’t say I’ve been in your situation - because that is unique to you - but I know from my own therapy journey how daunting it can be to find a helping professional who not only makes a difference, but also is a good fit relationally. After all, the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important elements of successful therapy.

Change is rarely easy. We live in a complex, dynamic world that is ever changing, and the stress it brings affects each of us differently. Dealing with anxiety, depressed mood, difficulty sleeping or struggles in work, relationships and activities, no one has to go it alone to find a path towards healthier and happier.

Life can be a difficult journey at times and for different reasons, but it helps to have someone walk along side you as you persevere through these trials. I believe in hope, that even in our darkest of days, hope is on the horizon.

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 Spokane Valley 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.
