MY APPROACH

I strongly believe in evidence-based practice and specialize in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

 

ACT helps people learn skills, such as mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion, to handle difficult thoughts and feelings so that they can take action to make their life better. 

Overall my approach will help you become: 

Aware of your thoughts without attachment

Open to your emotions without judgment 

 

Engaged in your life in a way that reflects your values
