Therapists Specializing in Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder in New Jersey

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a diagnosis in the category of depressive disorders that involves both physical and psychological symptoms around the time of menstruation. The symptoms are like those of premenstrual syndrome but more severe. While it is very normal for women to experience mild discomfort around the time of menstruation, premenstrual dysphoric disorder causes significant distress and affects participation in normal work and social activities.

The therapists below can help women who are struggling with premenstrual dysphoric disorder to better understand the condition and learn new coping strategies. Therapists might focus on identifying patterns in cycle and mood, or on increasing preparedness to respond more effectively to triggers. It’s also common for therapists to help clients develop more helpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors through a talking therapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). While CBT is commonly used and efficacious for premenstrual dysphoric disorder, there are also different approaches that can be beneficial.

The message that I have seen throughout my career is that life is not a straight line. It is often filled with “curve balls” that are unsettling resulting in feelings of worry, concern, being overwhelmed and uncertain.

Having been a psychologist for 30 years, I draw from many areas of experience and training to help you navigate these curve balls by working to develop the necessary skills to reclaim one’s balance in life.

My therapeutic methodology is to use a combination of a mind-body, cognitive-behavioral and eclectic approaches to treat depression, mood, anxiety and personality disorders, as well as, assisting in navigating life’s challenges such as grief, loss and emotional upheaval.

I work with individuals across the adult developmental lifespan providing one-on-one, group, and couples counseling.

Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.

At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.

The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.
