I help people develop psychological flexibility (of of the goals of ACT) so that my clients can spend more of their time living life and engaging in what matters most to them. I have been practicing ACT for several years, and it's one of my favorite types of therapy as it can really help people get unstuck.
Exposure Therapy is a highly effective type of therapy for anxiety disorders including OCD, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and phobias. Exposure therapy is usually used in combination with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Anxiety leads people to avoid, but unfortunately avoidance only fuels anxiety. I help people face and overcome their fears so they can spend their energy on living life to its fullest.
I've been trained in various types of CBT including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia; Cognitive Processing Therapy (a type of CBT specific to trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder), and CBT for anxiety and depression. CBT helps you take a closer look at how your thoughts might be impacting your feelings and choices. Getting new perspective on thoughts can help you change your thoughts to those that are more helpful for your life, so you begin to feel better.
