What Is Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapy?
Acceptance and commitment therapy, or ACT (pronounced like the word “act”) is a type of therapy which blends mindfulness with self-acceptance. It can be a very powerful treatment for depression, anxiety, workplace or social anxieties, and more. It is particularly favorable for clients who are seeking holistic approaches in addition to or in place of medication.
At Kathryn Grooms & Associates Psychotherapy in New York City you’ll find a team of therapists who will meet you where you are, in a judgment-free, welcoming environment. We know that life can be stressful and difficult to manage sometimes. When anxiety, depression, or negative thoughts are hindering your ability to live the life you desire, we can help. Our goal is to guide clients on a path that will change the way they relate to negative thoughts, difficult emotions, or trauma-related memories so they don’t become overwhelming or dominant.
Everyone experiences negative thoughts and difficult or troubling emotions from time to time. Many people are able to move through and cope with these feelings successfully, which is to say the feelings and emotions do not become all-consuming. Many other people, however, have difficulty understanding and processing negative thoughts or emotions, some of which may be rooted in past trauma.

Our therapists are skilled at providing a new lens through which to examine your past, present and future so that together we can identify, acknowledge and accept negative thoughts and troubling emotions and then commit to making positive, lasting changes. We move at your pace and along the way we provide the professional guidance and support to help you move closer to the life you desire.
