Licensed in MD and VA. Practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion-Focused Therapy (sometimes CBT, DBT.)
Clinical Social Worker in Bethesda, MD
We teach clients to notice thoughts and behaviors and cultivate non-judgmental, self-compassionate choices that lead to greater psychological flexibility, openness and loving relationships.
ACT therapists work a little differently..rather than changing or pushing away thoughts, we teach clients to allow, even welcome, all thoughts and feelings and learn to process and observe them all so we can choose those that move us toward a satisfying life of meaning.
Many years of training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction techniques, experiential, guided imagery, self-compassion and other anxiety hacks.
