Acceptance Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a powerful new psychotherapy based on cutting-edge research into how the human mind works. It has been clinically proven to be successful in a wide range of psychological problems. This is a very active therapy. It’s not one of those therapies where we just talk about your problems. The ACT approach involves learning how to stay in the present moment, identify your values, learn which actions to engage in to move you toward your values, learn to free yourself from your mind, and accept the pain that is inevitable in a purposeful, value based life.

Through our work together you will learn to confront your psychological pain and build the life that you value and choose. Emotional and psychological freedom means understanding what is important to you, knowing how to build that important life, while learning to make room for the pain that is often unavoidable. The philosopher and psychologist Alfred Adler said that “life happens at the level of events not thought, trust only movement.” Together, we will get you moving in the right direction to the authentic life you deserve.
