Does your mind go around and around with thoughts? Do you get stuck in worry or thinking about what you could have done differently or what will happen in the future? Many people spend too much time in their head. They go back and forth with their thoughts, trying to understand them or question why they’re having them. It can be torture! Feelings/emotions (especially anxiety) are similar and often are a result of spending too much time in our heads.
This group, based in the concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), will teach you how to have a different relationship with your thoughts and feelings. It will help you to spend a lot less time in that head of yours and much more time on the life that is in front of you.
Dr. Wendy Ossman, PsyD, is a Clinical Psychologist at RICBT who specializes in ACT, Anger, Anxiety, Binge Eating, Career Issues, Couples, DBT, Depression, Family, Habits, Parenting, Stress, Trauma, and Weight.
She is well-versed in traditional behavioral psychotherapy and DBT, but most closely affiliates with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT emphasizes that the struggles people encounter frequently result from an unwillingness to approach difficult emotions or thoughts. The resulting escape and avoidance prevents individuals from pursuing their core values and the life they really want. Dr. Ossman defines what it means to go the extra mile for patients.
