Isabelle Abramson currently has a waitlist for new clients.
It's easy to develop habits of responding to negative thoughts and feelings in ways that drag our lives off course. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a very practical model that focuses on recognizing some of the causes for normal mental health challenges, and helps clients to develop tools to stay on track. Rather than fixating on a diagnosis, ACT encourages us to see our lives as unique experiences that can become more functional as we transform internal struggles into meaningful action.
ACT tends to be most effective when clients have specific behavioral goals that they feel are being impeded by mental health challenges. A couple examples of this might be, “If I weren’t feeling so overwhelmed by negative thoughts I would act more sociably”, or “If I weren’t feeling so depressed I would finish an important project”.
With consistency and perseverance small changes allow you to look back at a life that feels increasingly well-lived, while also improving your ability to handle future unknowns. My goal as a therapist is that all of my clients move towards a life that feels increasingly meaningful and authentic. I strive to be their ally and sounding board in this process.
