My goal in working with clients is to help them shift their relationships with success, failure, fear, and change in an effort to experience a more meaningful life. As an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT )- and EMDR-oriented professional, I strive to help my clients face their less pleasant private events in the service of committing to valued action. As we work together, my clients and I strive to identify what matters, clarify the things that stand in our way, choose to make a mindset shift, and commit to doing things that matter on a deep level.

I also integrate emotional intelligence and mindfulness and acceptance -based principles into my work to help clients change their relationship with their thoughts and emotions and make choices that are consistent with what is most important to them.
My goals are to support clients in developing positive emotions such as self-compassion, humor, and gratitude while also learning how to relate to all emotions as fleeting; as messengers of our experiences. This ultimately helps clients relate differently to stress, fear, and anxiety, empathize with others, communicate more effectively, and build healthier relationships. When we can learn to honor our internal experiences, relate to our emotions in a non-judgmental way, and treat ourselves with compassion, we can begin to create change and build meaningful lives for ourselves.

I believe coping skills can be of value to help settle the mind, but that acceptance and commitment to seeking your meaningful life, should be the goal of therapy.
Congratulations on taking this step to work on improving your life/situation. That is a huge step and one that will be honored if you choose to work with me. I see therapy as helping people to change, not changing people. I am a client-centered therapist with over 25 years working in mental health. I have seen such a wide brush-stroke of peoples' experiences, nothing is any longer unbelievable, nor open to my judgment. These experiences include: inpatient care, high school and university educational counseling, and community-based care. My clients experiences define the concept of diversity.

I believe that many people think humans are always supposed to be happy- and that if they are not, something is wrong. I recognize nothing is “wrong” with a person who experiences pain or suffering, because pain and adversity are normal parts of being human. I practice a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help clients learn how to manage their thoughts and emotions without suppressing them, in order to make values-based decisions. I additionally practice EMDR to help individuals safely reprocess traumatic experiences that impact their emotional health and well-being.

I take an eclectic approach (incorporating primarily elements of evidence-based practices such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and trauma-informed interventions) to help my clients identify and explore past and present patterns that may be influencing their lives.
There are plenty of people out there who don't seem to "get it" - whether "it" is struggling to move forward after past trauma, feeling trapped in an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise, or searching desperately for a moment of stillness amongst the seemingly endless chaos. I won’t ever claim to know exactly what it is like to deal with what you’re currently struggling with (as our experiences are all so unique), but I am committed to ensuring that you feel seen and heard as we work together to confront whatever may be creating unnecessary distress.

You've just taken a positive and important step towards the possibility for change and personal growth! Perhaps you find you're experiencing adjustment difficulties, relationship issues, sadness, daily life conflicts or career issues. Maybe you're facing uncertainty or you're at a transition or turning point in your life. The complicated feelings of distress, anxiety, depression can be immobilizing.

Hello! I'm Ophelia and I am excited you found my page. How do you respond to challenges, Stressors and failures? Challenges and Failures doesn’t mean nothing has been accomplished; there is always the opportunity to learn something. Always remember that God isn’t surprised by our stumbles. His love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness are bigger than any mess we make. God never sees any of us as failures; He only sees us as learners. We fail only when we don’t learn from each experience. The decision is up to us—we can choose to turn a failure into a hitching post or into a guidepost in our lives.

Most people have a natural drive to be independent and self-sustaining. The truth is life is not always easy and it can be difficult to be vulnerable with others. When people use their courage and bravery to reach out, I have nothing but admiration for them. In the dark times of life, we need a place where we can feel understood, genuinely cared about, and supported. I believe that every person is unique, and everyone has different needs. Some times life's difficulties take more time then we would like but I am there to go through it all with you.

The longest journey begins with a single step and I am grateful to walk that path with you. It can be frightening and intimidating to begin the process of therapy; however, that experience can help you to make the changes that lead to a happier and more fulfilled life. Through a collaborative and safe relationship I establish with my clients, progress and change is made. Areas of practice include mood disorders, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, men's concerns, and ADHD and cognitive functioning (including testing services). I also enjoy working with clients from adolescents to seniors.

Feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, trapped, or exhausted? Is the discomfort of future uncertainty making you feel stuck? Maybe a part of you compares yourself to others or feels like you're "not enough." The pandemic has amplified how we react to day-to-day stressors. You may be experiencing strong emotions, relationship issues, or life transitions. You may be thinking, “Will therapy help me?” or "Is my experience fixable?" You are not broken and do not need to be fixed. What you’re needing is an opportunity to grow in self-care. It would be a privilege to hear your story and help you find your path to your true, authentic self.

Change can be difficult, seem impossible, and leave a person feeling overwhelmed, powerless, and destined to stay stuck. I believe that change is achievable, and each person can become the person he/she wants to be in life. The process of change is unique for each person, and it is my goal to empower and encourage each person to identify and harness personal strengths while overcoming problematic thoughts and behaviors. Change is challenging but possible. I would like to help you achieve your change.

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 Morgantown 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.
