An Overview of Women’s Therapy for Anxiety & Depression in Monmouth County, NJ

Navigating the complexities of anxiety and depression requires a blend of expertise, empathy, and individualized care. At WPC, we specialize in supporting women through these challenges, tailoring therapeutic approaches to meet their unique needs.

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)

Addressing the profound feelings of hopelessness, sadness, and lack of interest, our specialized therapy offers tools to break free and rediscover the joy in daily life.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) 

Overwhelming worries can become paralyzing. Our approach empowers women to identify triggers, manage symptoms, and foster a calmer, balanced mindset.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

By identifying and challenging negative or counterproductive thought patterns, CBT helps in gaining control over emotions and behaviors, establishing a more balanced and harmonious mental state.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Through guided eye movements, EMDR allows the brain to process traumatic or upsetting memories. This technique helps reduce emotional charge, creating relief from anxiety and depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

This talk therapy technique reduces anxiety and depression by connecting the past with the present. This uncovers their unconscious roots, fostering greater peace, self-awareness, and compassion.

Other Depression & Anxiety Disorders

The spectrum of mood and anxiety disorders is broad. At WPC, we address various conditions, ensuring you receive specific guidance and therapy that aligns with your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depression goes beyond fleeting feelings of sadness. MDD is a persistent condition characterized by prolonged feelings of hopelessness, lack of motivation, fatigue, and sometimes, physical symptoms. It’s essential to understand that MDD is not just a passing phase; it requires professional attention.

Therapy for GAD focuses on helping individuals recognize and address their chronic, exaggerated worries. Through cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and other tailored approaches, women can develop skills to manage their anxiety, confront their fears, and regain control of their lives.

Sudden, intense episodes of fear accompanied by physical symptoms like palpitations, sweating, or a feeling of choking might indicate a panic disorder. It’s essential to consult a professional to understand the nature of these attacks and get effective strategies to manage them.

The Women’s Psychotherapy Center can help you if you are experiencing mild or mild to moderate panic attacks, or if your panic attacks are occurring in the context of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. If your panic attacks are moderate to severe and are not part of a PTSD condition, we would likely refer you to a provider who specializes in this area.

Phobias are intense fears of specific things or situations. Therapy, especially exposure therapy, helps individuals face and understand their fears, gradually reducing their anxiety and allowing them to lead more unrestricted lives.

The Women’s Psychotherapy Center generally does not provide treatment for phobias alone. If a phobia is the main reason you are seeking treatment, we can provide you with referrals to providers who specialize in this area. However, if you believe that your phobia is part of a larger issue related to one of our areas of specialization, we would be happy to meet with you and provide a more thorough assessment.

When people are really down, they may occasionally wish they weren’t here or wish they could go to sleep and never wake up. This is a sign that you may be experiencing depression. Our therapists are here to listen and support you. They are equipped with evidence-based techniques to improve your mood so these thoughts and feelings don’t have to last. However, if you are experiencing persistent thoughts about death, thinking of ways to end your life, or making plans to do so, it’s crucial to seek immediate help elsewhere. We are not equipped to respond to urgent or emergent situations. If you are having thoughts of harming yourself and you think you might act on these thoughts, please call 988 for immediate assistance or to be connected to your local crisis hotline.

Absolutely. Anxiety and depression often coexist, and many therapeutic approaches, like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), can be effective for both. Our therapists will tailor the treatment plan to address each woman’s unique set of symptoms and challenges.
