What I Do and How I Can Help You

I am a certified ACT Matrix trainer, school psychologist, and family therapist who promotes psychological flexibility, mental health, wellness, and social-emotional learning. My clients include:

  1. Schools and educational institutions that want to implement effective social-emotional learning programs and create psychologically safe environments for students and staff.
  2. Businesses and organizations looking to enhance workplace well-being, manage stress, and improve team dynamics through evidence-based psychological approaches.
  3. Mental health and other professionals who want to learn and apply the ACT Matrix in their clinical practice or business setting to improve conditions for those they serve.
  4. Individuals and groups seeking to develop greater psychological flexibility, resilience, and values-aligned living.


ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Training) aims to increase valued living while reducing unwanted and unnecessary suffering. It rests on an evidence-based theory of language and cognition and is also grounded in a pragmatic philosophy of science that focuses on personal and shared values and ends.


Psychological flexibility is the target of ACT. It is a process that promotes adapting to changing circumstances despite internal struggles and external challenges while pursuing what matters. In other words, it helps us to notice what works to get us where we want to go. It involves:

  • Being present and fully engaged in the current moment rather than getting caught up in past regrets or future worries.
  • We accept thoughts and emotions without judgment instead of trying to suppress or avoid them.
  • We are developing committed actions that align with one's values, even in challenging situations.
  • Individuals and groups learn to shift mindsets or behavioral strategies when they are ineffective or reduce personal or social functioning.
  • It is recognizing and adapting to various social situations and contexts.


The ACT Matrix is explicitly designed to enhance psychological flexibility. It provides a structured framework for individuals to:

  • Identify their inner experiences (thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations).
  • Observe their actions and behaviors to determine what's working and what isn't.
  • Recognize how their environment and relationships influence them.
  • Align their actions and goals with their values.
  • By developing greater psychological flexibility, individuals can better manage stress and life challenges and enhance overall well-being and quality of life.
  • Make choices that are more consistent with their long-term goals and values.

Tools like the ACT Matrix help individuals cultivate psychological flexibility in education, therapy, and personal development contexts, leading to more adaptive and fulfilling lives. The bonus is that those who use it and show it to others simultaneously increase their psychological flexibility and wellness.


As a certified ACT Matrix trainer, I bring expertise in applying this powerful intervention across many settings. This includes many years working in schools, clinics and private practice settings with at-risk populations, learning and behavioral challenges, and organizational issues. In 2009, the creator, Dr. Kevin Polk, introduced me to the ACT Matrix. I have applied it in many schools, classrooms, and counseling centers. Those who use and apply the ACT Matrix report increased engagement and motivation, reductions in burnout, and more fulfilling outcomes with those they serve.


The ACT Matrix is a straightforward communication tool that can significantly enhance living, learning, and working experiences, making it accessible and effective for diverse populations.
