Upper West Side

Women’s Therapy on the Upper West Side – IntrinPsych Woman

As a woman, you have experienced many of the changes and transitions a woman goes through in her lifetime, as well as the myriad questions, challenges, and emotions that accompany those changes. You have experienced pain, confusion, and uncertainty; failed relationships; low self-confidence; helplessness and hopelessness. Perhaps you even wonder if anyone else can relate to what you’re going through.

IntrinPsych Woman was born out of a compassion for issues that are unique to women (and are often downplayed or ignored altogether) and a deep desire to help women navigate life’s transitions, questions, and challenges in a positive, healthy way.

We want you to thrive with purpose, security, and fulfillment in your life. Contact IntrinPsych Woman to get started on your path to wholeness and wellness today!

Women’s Therapy on the Upper West Side – Specializations

Our therapists are influenced by the perspective of Integral Psychology. We realize that human life consists of a number of interrelated facets (biological, emotional, cognitive, relational, cultural and spiritual), each of which plays a key role in a woman’s well being. We take all those into consideration so that we can best understand your unique circumstances and develop a treatment plan that is ideal for you.

We also embrace the Mind-Body connection, utilizing a holistic approach and collaborating with other health care practitioners as needed.

Our specializations include:

  • Self-Actualization – becoming wholly and fully yourself
  • Adolescence – identity development in a culture of pressure and influence
  • Early Adulthood – self-discovery; college, career, relationships, financial independence, and being out on your own
  • Fertility, Pregnancy, and Parenthood – emotional ups and downs; physical and mental stress; affecting both you and your partner
  • Mid to Later Life – shifts in roles as mother and wife; empty nest; becoming a grandparent; bereavement and loss; body image and sexuality, menopause and post-menopause
  • Eating Disorders – Anorexia, Bulimia, Compulsive Overeating, and other patterns of dysfunctional eating

Our treatment plans are always individually tailored to your specific needs. Two therapies we may utilize are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT is a short-term therapy that targets a very specific issue. During the course of treatment, the patient learns how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that negatively influence their behavior.

CBT is goal-oriented and results-focused and can effectively treat the following conditions:

  • Panic attacks
  • Specific phobias
  • Poor impulse control
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Trichotillomania

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Research shows DBT is highly effective in reducing multiple psychological symptoms including cutting, bingeing, purging, substance abuse, and angry outbursts. In addition, DBT directly addresses the psychosocial aspects of treatment — how a person interacts with others in different environments and relationships.

Contact IntrinPsych Woman today with any questions you may have. In our office, you will be treated with respect. We take confidentiality very seriously. We will match you with the therapist of your choice, or the one whom we feel will best compliment your personal needs.
