Stress can be caused by many things: change, relationships, work, health, or trauma, to name a few. However it develops, it can take its toll on you physically and emotionally when not managed. I will help you cope with the emotional, physical, and social challenges of handling everyday stress, healing from a traumatic event, living with a medical condition (e.g., chronic pain/headaches, illness), or adjusting to a loved one's illness. I know people are resilient, and I will work with you to keep stress a manageable part of your life, instead of your entire identity.

You worry that your stress is impacting those you love. You've tried different strategies to reduce it. They aren't helping. Deep inside you know there's a better way to live, but you're not sure how to do it. The idea of going to therapy feels vulnerable, but you're willing to try it at this point.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in San Diego or for a San Diego ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
