Message to clients
"Finding a therapist can be a very confusing and difficult process, and I encourage you to stick with it, because therapy can be very helpful. Even if you go see one person and the match doesn't quite work out, it's okay to shop around and see someone else. Feel free to schedule a phone call with me; I'm happy to see if we would be a good fit, and even if for some reason I may not be able to help you, I'll be happy to help you find someone who can."
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)In cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a therapist in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of cognitive behavioral thearpy that uses mindfulness and behavioral activation to help people learn strategies to live life more in the present, more focused on important values and goals, and less focused on painful thoughts, feelings and experiences.
