Do you feel like you are not enough?

Is it as though you are perpetually falling short?

Is each day becoming increasingly difficult just to get through?

You are not alone.

 

Using evidence-based therapy, specifically acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT),

I help adults struggling with stress/burnout, issues with self-esteem, perfectionism, depression, anxiety (e.g., generalized anxietyphobias, social anxiety, panic attacks, OCD), perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, trauma/PTSD, or substance abuse/addiction, learn skills, such as mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion, to handle difficult thoughts/feelings and take actions to reclaim their lives!

As the author of Reclaim Your Life: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I specialize in ACT, which focuses on:

 

Developing awareness of your thoughts without attachment,

 

Cultivating openness to your emotions without judgment,​ and

 

Becoming engaged in your life in a way that reflects your values.

 

 

I am also an adjunct professor and adjunct clinical supervisor at Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Psychology and Education.

 

Please know that whatever you may be struggling with,

 

You are not broken.

 

You are fundamentally, unconditionally whole, and in possession of everything that is needed to reclaim your life.

 

I know reaching out can be hard, but if you are even thinking about it please do. Schedule your free 15-minute phone consultation today!
