Announcement icon I am offering tele-therapy through video and/or phone to all who want to be seen during this time. I'm a provider for Cigna.
You're unhappy and you're trying to do something about it. Anxiety is stressing you out. It can make you feel depressed and experience low self-esteem. You want to feel good about yourself and the direction you're taking in life. However, you may feel hopeless, helpless and alone. But you aren't! We can discover what's not working for you and find different ways of thinking that open up new possibilities. A shift in your perspective can make all the difference in the world. Therapy can help you gain a greater sense of freedom and joy.
I'm a caring and open-minded listener. I'm good at helping you sort through your jumbled thoughts and feelings until you feel a sense of order, understanding and purpose. I teach self-compassion. I work with individuals, couples, families. I specialize in group therapy.
I know that life can be a struggle. I'd like to be able to help you with yours. Our struggles are also our opportunities to grow and live a richer life. Therapy provides a respite from your busy week to slow down and think about what you're going through and how you want to proceed. You don't want to just survive life...you want to embrace life.

Rena Pollak's Groups

Relationships, Anxiety and Depression Group

You don't have to deal with the symptoms of depression, anxiety, loneliness, low self-esteem and relationship problems alone. Group therapy provides an ideal environment to heal and grow. Most symptoms are affected by the relationships in your life. Understanding yourself and how you engage in relationships is the work of group therapy. Group therapy improves our functioning in all these relationships, easing the symptoms that arise from unsatisfying relationships.
