Therapists Specializing in Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder in New York

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.

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.

I believe in a personalized approach to each person’s concerns. If you are grappling with a medical illness, a difficult life transition, or a particular disorder that's interfering with your daily life, please don't hesitate to reach out. I strive to provide the best, evidence-based, modern treatment to suit your needs, and will work with you to get you to a point where you feel stronger and more empowered.

In addition to sessions in the office, your treatment will include access by phone and email (and at times video conferencing or text messaging, when necessary) to touch base regularly and keep you on track with your plan and treatment. In contrast to traditional practices, I very much encourage communication when outside the office.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I believe that therapy gives us the opportunity to express ourselves to the fullest extent without fear of judgment or retaliation. Every single therapeutic relationship is unique, and I feel that building this relationship requires a collaborative and non-hierarchial approach on the part of both therapist and client. While I envision therapy to provide a safe space for reflection and healing, I am well aware that many folks have had negative experiences in therapy, sometimes even contributing to re-traumatization.

My goal as a therapist is to offer an affirming space for you to explore difficult feelings by harnessing your strengths, honoring your boundaries, all while providing and receiving constructive feedback along the way. In my opinion, no problem is too small to be addressed through a therapeutic relationship. I also believe that beginning therapy is never a bad idea — we can always pause if it doesn’t feel right to you.

It can feel impossible to love and know ourselves when our world rarely feels quiet, when we compare ourselves to others without even realizing it, and when we can't shake the fear we are falling short. Here you will find a convenient, safe space to speak and really feel your experience.

Many of us don't have a comfortable place to explore feelings around sexuality and relationships. This is that space - it is my honor and pleasure to be able to work collaboratively with my clients to achieve goals around pleasure, the release of shame, and finding roles that feel right, especially when these are outside of the mainstream. I work with individuals, couples, and different relationship configurations about sexuality and relationship dynamics. You will find our work together to be full of care, compassion, and support.

Connecting to support can feel challenging, even in the best of times. Maybe traditional therapy didn't feel like the right fit because your lifestyle is progressive, fast-paced, and modern. Whatever the barrier may be, things can get in the way of us getting help when we most need it. I get it. That's why I offer convenient, creative, confidential, HIPAA-compliant therapy on your terms. You have access to a private online office and secure, confidential messaging and journaling between sessions with me. We know our lives keep moving outside of our therapy sessions, and we can message as useful to check in around goal setting, stressful events, and for consistent support.

Deciding to begin therapy is not an easy choice, and I commend you for your bravery in beginning this journey.

I look forward to meeting you, and working together.

I have extensive training in how to effectively integrate evidence-based practices with the latest research regarding the biological, neurological, and hormonal changes unique to women.

As such, I'm able to provide clients with education on the neurobiological basis of their distress, as well tangible tools and techniques to help them feel relief. My approach is holistic, and when appropriate, I provide referrals to psychiatrists, acupuncture, yoga and mindfulness classes.

I believe psychological treatment, in combination with holistic modalities, may provide the best outcomes for women.

Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Depressed?

I understand...

I've been there.

Whether you're new to therapy or you're a seasoned veteran, beginning with a provider can seem daunting. My goal is to eliminate any reservations you might have, and to witness you write the narrative you want your life to emulate!

I follow mostly humanistic and existential approaches to treatment sessions. These approaches allow you to explore and find your innate ability to heal in the present moment. Also, they enable you to focus on how you can utilize your potential to make meaning of your life while finding wholeness within yourself.

Currently, I specialize in treating clients with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and dissociative disorders such as depersonalization and derealization.

In my personal and professional experience, mental well-being is improved through creating a safe, judgment-free space to express concerns, develop coping skills, and explore thoughts and feelings that contribute to our moods. I'm here to provide that space and help you navigate this explorative journey!

Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
