ACT Therapy

Welcome to Behr Psychology!

Behr Psychology specializes in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT therapy is an innovative and effective therapeutic strategy that helps people accept their thoughts and feelings while committing to behaviors that lead to a fulfilling life. Behr Psychology’s expert psychologists and therapists are committed to offering high-quality acceptance therapy to help you improve your mental health.

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) focuses on accepting what is out of your control and taking proactive steps to improve your mental health. By combining mindfulness techniques and behavioral strategies, ACT therapy enables you to be present and completely engaged. This method is very effective for people coping with anxiety, depression, stress, and other emotional challenges.
