Frequently Asked Questions
In my experience, I have found that many types of interventions can be clinically effective. This is why it's important for me to give brief descriptions of the ones I use during treatment sessions, so you can have a clearer understanding of what to expect and make an informed decision before choosing to work with me.
What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or "ACT" challenges people to embrace their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting them or feeling guilty for these unpleasant experiences. It can seem confusing at first, but this approach, paired with mindfulness-based therapy, offers clinically effective treatment that has helped many clients improve mental health issues and interpersonal relationships in ways science doesn't yet understand fully.
What is a Person Centered-Approach
The person-centered approach strips away all the rules and creates a space for people. There is no emphasis on what they are diagnosed with but rather on how it impacts them personally in their day-to-day lives. This allows us to better serve our clients' needs by focusing more heavily on achieving aspirations that will enable you to reach your full potential as an individual without any disabilities or conditions holding back growth opportunities.
What is Mindful Self-Compassion
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a revolutionary approach to emotional well-being that combines mindfulness and self-compassion. Mindfulness helps us turn with loving awareness towards difficult experiences (thoughts, emotions, and sensations), while MSC teaches you how your attitudes affect how you feel.
What is Behavioral Activation?
Behavioral activation is a therapeutic technique that helps people change their emotions. It can be part of cognitive-behavioral therapy, or it could stand alone as an effective treatment for anxiety and other mental health conditions
