Everyone experiences stress from time to time. However, if you find yourself feeling stressed most of the time, you may benefit from individualized care and treatment. Ongoing stress and anxiety can often physically take a toll on us, leading to stomachaches, headaches, or muscle tension. It can interfere with our relationships, sleep, or life responsibilities. If you’re struggling with stress, know that you’re not alone, and no level of stress is too small to seek help.

Life can get busy, especially amid hectic New York life. It can feel like there’s never enough time to make therapy a consistent part of your routine. However, if you’ve tried keeping it together and are at the end of your rope, allotting 45 minutes in your schedule for therapy with a trusted provider can offer you tools that you can take with you for long-term symptom relief. You may even find value in attending just a few therapy sessions.

How often you schedule therapy depends on a couple factors: your preferences, your therapist’s recommendations, and scheduling and availability. Individual sessions are 45 minutes long. In order to ensure that your therapy meets your goals, you and your therapist will collaborate and check in with one another to determine that your treatment is on track.
