Why else might therapy be beneficial?
Maybe you don’t feel like you have an anxiety disorder, but you still think you want to speak to a therapist. Fortunately, my approach of using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can help you with a variety of presenting concerns including depression, stress, grief and loss, and transition. With each of these issues, as well as those not specifically listed, therapy can help you gain a different perspective on your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and actions, in order to change your behavior to be more values consistent.
This means instead of letting “negative” or painful feelings keep you stuck in bed, stuck in a boring job, or “unable” to move on after the loss of a loved one, you learn how to both have the feelings AND take the action you want toward a meaningful life. As your therapist, I help you figure out where you are getting stuck, how to make room for and talk about those painful feelings, thoughts, and memories, and how to take active steps toward your values.
