Therapy can help lessen the impact of painful events, thoughts or feelings and enable you to move towards a rich and meaningful life.
People engage in treatment for many different and often, complex reasons. I aim to help clients better understand their struggles and strengths in the context of a safe and non-judgmental environment. The techniques employed are dependent upon each clients’ individual needs and goals. However, the primary treatment models I draw from are considered next generation cognitive behavioral therapies (e.g., ACT).
A common approach to suffering is to attempt to control and problem solve our way out of painful experiences. But what if this is actually causing more problems than it solves? In our work together, we’ll explore how to reduce suffering through acceptance and mindfulness, get clarity on what really matters to you, and commit to living a full, meaningful life. One of the most important aspects of psychological wellbeing is being able to distinguish between what we can change and what we cannot, so that we can work towards acceptance of the parts of our lives over which we have no control and fully commit to living a life consistent with our values.
