Are you struggling to cope with the pressures of life? There is help available for you. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a form of psychotherapy that can help you be more mindful, more resilient, and more flexible in your thinking. With ACT, you’ll learn to be more present in the moment, accept your feelings and thoughts, and align your actions with your goals.

If you are getting overwhelmed by life’s stresses or anxiety, ACT might help. Whether you are located in downtown Washington DC, Anacostia, Ballston, Bluemont, or even Brentwood, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Right For You?

Acceptance and commitment therapy is not like other therapies. The goal of ACT is not to change or get rid of negative emotions; rather, the goal is to learn to live with them, not overreact from them, and accept them as part of life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy can be a helpful treatment for many mental health conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Substance Abuse
  • Anger

The goal of this therapeutic approach is to propel you to a state of psychological flexibility so you can act in a way that serves you.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by life or stuck in a spiral of negative emotions, you could benefit from ACT. If you would like to learn more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, read licensed therapist Nicole Redderow’s article about how ACT can help you find new comfort.
