I will also use CBT and ACT modalities along side the above.
Hi, I'm Greg Stelzner, LCSW, I've been practicing therapy for 10 years and have competency in treating many problem areas. Areas that I have come to specialize in are Chronic Pain, Trauma, Depressive and Anxiety disorders. Like many mental health struggles these tend to lead to a feeling of being stuck, a loss of quality of life, joy, vitality, etc, and one wonders if there is hope of recovery. Finding a quality, friendly and competent therapist is very helpful in unlocking the problem and healing. I strive to be this person for all my clients.

This includes ERP, Inference-Based CBT (IBT), ACT , and metacognitive therapy.
Do you find yourself getting stuck? Is anxiety disrupting your quality of life? Do you have distressing thoughts? Are you engaging in behaviors because you feel like you have to, not because you want to? Are you avoiding situations? Anxiety, obsessive-compulsive, and related disorders can lead individuals to avoid situations or endure them with distress, and causes other disruptions to functioning. When your disorder is calling the shots, this takes away your ability to choose. If you're ready to learn practical ways to manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, let's work on improving your quality of life.

Anxiety and depression are signals from your mind and body and soul that something in life needs your attention. They are messengers inviting you into a journey of growth and of healing your relationship with yourself. A lot of times we’re not even aware of the negative beliefs and perceptions we’re holding that are weighing us down, but they are reflected to us in our frequent moods, our thought patterns, our relationships, and especially where we feel stuck. This is also a journey of learning to shift from living in the mind to enjoying being in our body and making choices from a place of connection rather than from fear.

Life is challenging, difficult, often times downright sad. It may seem too overwhelming and impossible to handle, most if not all have experienced life in these dark places. Competent and caring counselors can help you figure out how to get out of those places. What's your biggest challenge? Need help with coping skills, communication, relationship problems that can benefit from being less reactive and more responsive, decision-making, parenting skills like Circle of Security, resolution of situations that have haunted you too long that EMDR can help with, anxiety that seems to control your life, loss of someone or something?...

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 Cheyenne 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.
