As a result of a significant life-changing accident she underwent multiple spine surgeries and rehabilitation over several years. She understands the feelings of vulnerability, anxiety, and depression with the loss of control over predictable outcomes. The ACT tools and framework were essential to her coping with prolonged disability particularly physical limitations and chronic pain. She benefited from the ACT tools and the skills of psychological flexibility for lifestyle adjustments.
