Dr. Janine O'Brien is a licensed clinical psychologist providing teletherapy throughout New York. She specializes in working with relationship concerns, family issues, life transitions, identity exploration, self-esteem and worth, anxiety, and work/career issues. Dr. O'Brien has a particular interest in working with women and women of color.
Clients of Dr. O'Brien commonly come to therapy initially feeling a sense of disconnection (from others, the world, and themselves) often through experiences of traumas, oppression, marginalization, pressures, and expectations placed upon them by family, society, culture, or even themselves. On top of that, they intimately know the pressure to keep it going while things continue to pile up. They are hesitant to reach out for additional support and often find themselves scrolling through a million therapy profiles only to convince themselves yet again that they “should” just suck it up, that their problems are not “big” enough for therapy, or that they’ll reach out some other time.
Utilizing an integrative approach prioritizing clients' unique needs, goals, and values, Dr. O'Brien helps women reconnect with the parts of themselves and their dreams that have been lost and dismissed along the way, shift the narratives, empower them to stand in their truths, and live more authentic and aligned lives.
