"Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any how."
This wonderful, beautiful journey we call life, is also incredibly painful at times. During those times, engaging in the therapy process can be helpful in a number of ways: it provides the opportunity for healing acceptance, connection, and support; it offers the chance to learn skills to address thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that we find distressing; and it is a place to find our 'why,' our sense of meaning and purpose, which can help us enrich our lives.
In addition to CBT and CBT-Enhanced (a treatment specifically for eating disorders), I utilize the philosophy and principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The goal of ACT is to help create a rich, full, and meaningful life, while effectively handling the pain and stress that life inevitably brings.
Seeking help is hard. It can be scary to think about sharing your struggles with a stranger, even a mental health provider. This process takes courage and it's important that you find a provider that is a good fit for you. If you think I might be that person, I welcome you to contact me so we can talk about your specific needs and how I may be able to help.
