Long Business Description:

An Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) practitioner – a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral approach focusing on self-compassion and grounded action. I have extensive knowledge of kink/BDSM & poly practices and the community. You will not need to waste your therapy session educating me about alternative lifestyles! My expertise also encompasses identity (multicultural), sexual orientation & gender (LGBTQA). I offer one-on-one talk therapy to adults who are seeking facilitation in their healing and growth. Anxiety, avoidance and escapism, compulsive behaviors, creative obstacles, existential issues, life transitions, difficulties with others, and ego challenges are some specialities. Interventions address overcoming self-limiting beliefs, fostering deep trust in oneself and values-based goals. I see the relationship dynamic within the therapy session as foundational to our work together. As such, the therapeutic alliance can also be an opportunity to model challenging interpersonal situations as they arise including boundary-setting, speaking authentically, tolerating uncertainty, reconciling conflict, and maintaining mutual and unconditional respect for one another’s dignity.Josie Valderrama, Psy.D.
