Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT, focuses on changing our relationship to our thoughts and feelings. With ACT, I will teach you how to generate more present moment awareness, get unglued from obsessive or depressive thoughts, and engage more in value-driven activities. ACT is very successful in treating depression, anxiety, chronic pain, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis.
Emotion-Focused therapy, or EFT, can help you identify, utilize, and process emotions. Suffering comes when we encounter distressing emotions but try to resist or avoid them rather than accept and feel them fully. With EFT, I help patients learn to recognize their emotions and feel them in a safe and validating way.
Thoughts, feelings and behaviors are inter-related, so altering one can help alleviate problems in another. Cognitive behavioral therapy aims to help you identify, challenge, and modify unhelpful ideas or behavioral patterns. CBT also includes relaxation training and guidance for interpersonal relationships. I use CBT to help clients suffering from phobias, anxiety, panic, or depression.
Feeling overwhelmed by anger can be a really lonely experience. Often, it’s those moments when we need connection the most that we end up driving away the people with whom we so desperately wish to connect. I use Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Non-Violent Communication to help you understand your anger and work with it in more effective ways.
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur as a result of a physical, sexual, psychological or emotional assault, or threat. It can rock you to your core, causing you to rethink everything you once knew. But symptoms of PTSD are very treatable. I use Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Adaptive Disclosure, and mindfulness strategies to help you move forward in your life.
You may feel trapped by nagging and intrusive thoughts that you feel have no “off-button.” Or, you may feel compelled to engage in certain behaviors to a point where they impede on your quality of life. Have hope. Obsessive thinking and behaviors are very treatable. I help my clients understand their symptoms and unlock the door to an easier, more comfortable way of existing.
Anxiety, panic, and phobias can be suffocating. You may feel tense, preoccupied with worry, or experience an elevated heart rate, upset stomach, chronic pain, or headaches. These issues arise when our nervous system goes on overdrive and our body doesn’t distinguish between actual threats and imagined threats. I use evidence-based practices to help you break free from the control of anxiety.
Sometimes we go through life feeling as though we’re missing something, like we’ve lost our spark or that we're hopelessly depleted. Unchecked, depression can spiral downward in such a way that it becomes difficult to function. But it doesn’t have to be this way. I help my clients move through depression and re-connect to a happier, more meaningful life.
