Grief is a reaction to an emotionally significant loss and often comes with symptoms of depression or anxiety. These symptoms can remain intense and last for a long time after a loss, making it difficult to move forward with a healthy lifestyle. Working with a therapist who specializes in loss/grief may reduce symptom frequency and severity and lead to a better quality of 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.
