Do you feel like your anxiety is out of control? Do you struggle with unwanted thoughts or compulsive behaviors? You have tried to change but your anxiety keeps getting stronger and you find yourself giving in more and more to your anxiety. You feel compelled to act on your habits and rituals even though you know they are not good for you. It's affecting other areas of your life. You don't want anyone to find out so you do not know who to turn to for help.

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 Washington or for a Washington 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.
