Therapists in Connecticut specializing in Depression and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Therapy for Depression

Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health. Working with a therapist who specializes in depression may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality life.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) helps people take positive action in their life. It involves learning to accept unpleasant thoughts, emotions, or experiences without viewing them as problems. ACT is often used to treat stress, anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in ACT listed below.
