Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Embrace the Present through Acceptance & Commitment Therapy

Feelings of guilt or self-doubt are enough to keep us from getting the help we need. Sometimes, problematic thoughts and emotions will serve as a barrier to treatment. The right approach – one that combines acceptance and commitment therapy with other valuable treatment modalities – can help you recover your confidence and restore your path to recovery.

Acceptance and commitment therapy – often abbreviated ACT – is a derivative of Relational Frame Theory, one that helps clients reduce avoidance and other uncomfortable feelings.

Every individual, couple, and family face unique challenges. Connect right now with skilled counseling professionals who can help you face them. Our team of counselors will utilize ACT techniques and strategies to help you develop psychological flexibility and reduce the feelings of distress that comes from problem avoidance.

Our counselors are standing by to help you navigate the challenges you’re facing. We’ll pair you with a licensed mental health clinician in our network qualified to help you confront reality and decide which actions will improve your quality of life.

Face, and process, all aspects of life

If you or someone in your family needs help, there’s no shame in asking for it. Acceptance and commitment therapy can help you embrace and accept your thoughts and feelings. You will be empowered to make changes that will lead to a more fulfilling life.

Counseling is often the fastest route back to a full life, where ACT helps you become more accepting of your thoughts and feelings, decrease avoidance of stressors and make changes.

Our counselors are ready to serve your needs as they develop. Through ACT, we can help you and struggling loved ones face any of the following issues:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Addiction
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Family tragedy
  • Psychosis
  • Grief, loss and trauma
  • Eating disorders

Once you decide to stop fighting your past, and commit to an action plan that promotes healthy thought patterns, you’ll begin to experience real change. The way you think – and the perspective you maintain of others and of yourself – often shift with your newfound attention to personal values.

With the right help, and a blend of ACT and other forms of therapy, you can make strides to accept the present situation, even if it’s uncomfortable.

What can acceptance and commitment therapy offer me?

If you’re hesitant to try acceptance and commitment therapy, you’re certainly not alone. Even if you’ve participated in counseling before, it’s normal to feel unsure at the thought of speaking to someone else about the challenges you’re facing.

We recommend giving acceptance and commitment therapy a try if…

  1. You want to stop the cycle of avoidance that has contributed feelings of guilt, shame or anxiety to your life.
  2. You want to learn to be more present and accepting of yourself, your thoughts and your feelings.
  3. You want to learn to cope with the things in your life that you cannot change, taking action and making changes to the items you can control in the present moment.
  4. You want to better tolerate uncomfortable feelings rather than using unhealthy coping strategies to avoid or reduce these feelings.
  5. You want to live a more fulfilling life guided by your values.

You don’t need a life-changing reason to participate in acceptance and commitment therapy. Even if you simply want to minimize medication intake for one or more mental health issues you face, ACT can help you take meaningful steps toward improvement. With the guidance of a licensed counselor, you can begin mastering your own thoughts and feelings through ACT.
