Kam Ragland, MA, LPCC
Kam Ragland is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate and has a Master of Arts degree in Counseling and Psychological Services from Saint Mary's University and post-graduate training in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS Level 1) and is a registered yoga teacher (RYT200).
She has a special interest in helping women and parents who feel stuck. ACT is a practical, mindfulness-based approach that is both a therapy and a life practice. The main objective in this way of working is to increase the client's ability to move toward the people and things that are important in life, even in the presence of inner obstacles (e.g. thoughts like "I'm not good enough" or feelings such as shame). ACT seeks to help clients connect their behavior with their values. It can be extremely effective for clients who feel stuck because they can more easily pivot out of stuck loops and toward the life they want to live.
