For a lot of people the idea of therapy can be scary and daunting. A successful therapy session is one where you leave recognizing your own inner and outer resources to deal with the ups and downs of life. Think of it more as a problem-solving workshop. At Brodsky Wellness LLC we will work together to uncover your own strengths to deal with the challenges that arise through life. You will have the space to feel vulnerable and explore any fears or tough feelings that you don’t feel comfortable sharing with the people you love. Understanding your own story may take some bravery, and I would be happy to accompany you on that journey.

You feel like something is holding you back...whether it's at work, in your relationship, as a parent, or just in where you thought your life would be by now. For the most part your life, career, or marriage is ok;but you envision better. You want to feel the depth and intimacy you once felt with your partner and stop the ongoing arguments. You want to stop holding back at work; or feeling inadequate as a parent because you just don't know what to do next about your child's behavior. You are stressed and overwhelmed, feeling like no one truly gets it. Your relationships are well enough, but you are missing depth, connection and meaning. Perhaps you are waiting for motivation to strike you? As you wait, the days, months, and years fly by and you remain stuck, vowing that next week...month...year...or time, things will be different. Why wait? You deserve NOW. You want to thrive in your life and change the way things feel at this moment. You want to stop repeating the same patterns, arguments, and situations that keep you unhappy. Perhaps you can do it alone, but what if nothing changes? There is a better solution. Seeking outside support is a sign of strength and readiness for change

Providing my clients with a comfortable, open, non-judgmental environment is key to developing a trusting relationship. I have found it to be so important for my clients to recognize and build upon their own strengths. In our work together we can establish definable goals for treatment and uncover various patterns that developed over time. After obtaining a Master's Degree from Columbia University, I had the opportunity to work in both inpatient, outpatient, and private practice settings. I specialize in working with individuals of all ages who are dealing with anxiety, self-destructive behaviors, or adoption-related concerns.

Are you worried about your child and struggling to find ways to help him/her? Does your son or daughter seem unusually sad, angry, have trouble making and keeping friends, or following rules? Sometimes after a change or trauma children express their difficulties through negative behaviors. As parents, we all want our kids to feel good about themselves and be successful. Sometimes its easy to lose sight of a child's strengths and positive attributes. I'm passionate about helping struggling kids and families get back on a positive track in a fun and engaging way.

Life has changed beyond expectations. Many of our careers, educational life and values have become unsettled. I am a good fit for highly sensitive people, who amidst this change, are in a life transition such as college disruption, trauma, relationship problems and work issues. The pervasive stress, resulting in depression, confusion, anxiety, OCD, addiction and disruption, will be met with deep listening, reflection and compassion. For those whose minds have been effected by psychedelic drugs, marijuana, childhood trauma or bipolar tendencies, we will work together to create clear, practical strategies for health/recovery.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
