The greatest psychological need of human beings is to be understood. Not being understood, or worse, being misunderstood, is a very lonely and painful experience. Our highest aim at McKinney Psychotherapy and Counseling, is to understand you as a person, and to understand what you are going through in your struggles. Being able to talk about your difficulties in a supportive, non-judgmental, and confidential setting, and to be deeply understood is, in itself, a very healing experience. From this point, problems can be viewed from a more insightful, and objective perspective, and specific and effective ways to bring about change can be found.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Psychiatrists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in McKinney will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
