Despite your road, your hardships, life events or simply the inability to shake the changes of our ever-evolving world, I am here to listen and help you find answers, resolution and/or comfort so that you can still thrive and live a happier, easier life- a life where you can cope with, and release yourself from past emotional burdens, pain or fears, and the struggles these may bring. I can certainly help and we can look at the underlying values that cause these fears to arise.
In your initial consultation, we can review your concerns, and the changes you are looking for. Together, we can begin identifying goals that will help you to find solace and develop positive coping skills. It is my hope to empower people to take control of their futures and build their confidence so that they can be more autonomous. You will learn how to identify your stressors and utilize your new skills to better cope, evaluate situations and create action steps. You will learn how to feel like you are in control of your journey and hot to feel more comfortable in life's driver seat.
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT): An action-oriented approach to therapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Individuals learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives. With this understanding, individuals begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.
