My Approach to Helping
Less Talking, More Doing.
Hi, I’m Mike Morde, I’m a licensed mental health counselor and addictions therapist based in Pittsford, New York.
I’m pretty excited to share with you what I consider to be the future of behavioral psychology, and it’s going to help you—like it has with my clients—with your mental health or addictions concerns. It’s something called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, also called ACT.
So, there’s this ridiculous idea in our Western culture that we’re always supposed to be happy: The newest clothes, bigger cars, get a skinny and sexy figure and the newest smartphone that just came out an hour ago. All of this pressure has contributed to skyrocketing mental health and addiction issues, regardless of your genetic predispositions.
ACT bridges a gap between Eastern and Western Psychology, grounded in the idea that it’s not your distressing thoughts and emotions that are the problem, instead it’s actually your relationship with those thoughts and emotions. ACT illuminates a path through your psychological suffering, using realistic strategies for what you can do about your concerns, so that you can start living a life that’s richer, fuller, and more meaningful.
Which is also why the slogan for my practice is Less Talking, More Doing.
If you’ve tried traditional talk therapy and you didn’t find it helpful, it’s time to try something new. Contact me today, so we can schedule your free consultation.
