Anxiety, depression, addiction, and stress. These are all common conditions affecting tens of thousands of people right here on Long Island alone. All of these conditions have symptoms that, while they can vary slightly, they also tend to have many similarities between them. It is why psychologists are able to use the DSM-V (diagnostic and statistics manual) to use the symptoms in order to diagnose these mental health conditions.
But although the conditions can have similarities, the people that suffer from them often do not. Every person is unique, with their own specific experiences and personalities that have brought them to where they are today. That is why it is important not only to treat these mental health conditions, but to also have services available that can be used to assist each individual with the struggles they have that are unique to them.
Therapy for Women’s Issues at Long Island Psychology
One of the ways that people can differ is with the pressures that are brought on by their gender. Women have, historically, experienced very different struggles than men, and those struggles have an affect on their psychological and mental health.
We at Long Island Psychology have started addressing this directly. Here at our offices in Rockville Centre and Garden City, we’ve begun creating treatments and support specifically around some of the common struggles of women, such as:
- Navigating some of the challenges of motherhood.
- Being a professional working woman.
- Eating disorders and body positivity issues.
- Struggles unique to women’s health.
- Family planning, infertility, and miscarriage issues.
- Pregnancy anxieties and postpartum depression.
- Maintaining a work/life balance, particularly as a mother, wife, or caretaker.
The purpose of these different support options is to make sure that women that are seeking help have more specific, identifiable treatments that they can choose to address their unique needs. While we still offer traditional mental health treatments for anxiety, depression, and others, in the end, the best way for women – or anyone – to achieve better mental health is to know that they’re being supported.
We at Long Island Psychology are here to help you meet your needs. Our Rockville Centre office is located at 100 N Village Ave, Rockville Centre, NY 11570, or you can visit us in Garden City, NY on Franklin Avenue. You are also welcome to call us for therapy for women in NY state, and no matter where you are located, we can use our remote therapy services to help.
Your issues and struggles deserve to be acknowledged. Through our therapy for women’s issues, our hope is that you will feel seen and heard.
