Work & Life Stress

It's easy to get swept away by the career, lifestyle, and personal demands of a fast-paced city like New York. Something's got to give, and oftentimes it is our emotional well-being that takes the hit.

Struggles with self-esteem, perfectionism, or imposter syndrome can contribute to increased anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, or addictive behavior. Over time, this takes a toll on our health and our ability to perform.

Anytime our emotions or behaviors interfere with living our best life, therapy can help.
