You know, things don’t always go the way we think they will. We might lose something, or someone, that means a lot to us. We might find it difficult to understand why we’re behaving differently. Or it might be an unfamiliar feeling that we just can’t seem to shake off. Sometimes, we need a bit of help to understand what’s going on, and that's where Mindwork comes in.
When you visit me at Mindwork, you and I will spend some time each week increasing your self-awareness, and helping you gain more insight into your inner life. We’ll work together so you can get more out of every day and meet any challenge life throws at you. So if you haven’t been feeling like yourself lately, let’s figure it out together.
If you have any questions about your insurance coverage or costs associated with your visits to Mindwork, please get in touch.
Hi, I’m Carolyn.
I started Mindwork back in 2008 for those people who want to get a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. After working as a graphic designer for a number of years, I felt the need to be creative in a different way. So I went back to school to pursue a Master of Social Work and started practicing psychotherapy in 2002.
For the past 20 years, and since graduating, I’ve continued to deepen my experience and education, collecting extensive knowledge in working with individuals, couples, and groups. Additionally, I share my knowledge with other therapists through consultation, teaching, and leading workshops at professional conferences. And most importantly, I work with and share my knowledge with people just like you. People who want to understand what changes they need to make to live the lives they want, and what they can do to make these changes stick.
Anyone can feel lonely. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a relationship or not, a social butterfly or someone who isn’t into crowds. To understand what’s making you feel alone, we’ll focus on your inner and outer experiences, and work together to find useful things you can do to feel more connected to the world. When battling with loneliness and searching for a 'Therapist Near Me' look no further.
Depression affects the way you think and feel, it can even affect you physically. It can alter the way you think about yourself, the people around you, and the events you experience every day. We’ll work together to understand what’s going on and help you feel more positive.
There are times when making a decision feels impossible. We're not sure about who we are, how we live, who we love, or whether we’d be better off in a different career. And by spending some time together, I can help you find a sense of clarity, and work out what's really important to you.
The decision to end a marriage is not a simple one. If you’re going through a divorce, thinking about asking for one or have been asked, or have been through the process – there are bound to be some serious emotions to deal with. Together we can work through these difficult feelings and find positive ways to help you move forward. I specialize in Couples Therapy TriBeCa and Relationship Counseling NYC.
Although they're often easily dismissed, moodswings can seriously impact your life. If you've ever experienced changes in your sleep, appetite, social habits, concentration, or motivation, you’ll understand. So if it’s time to address one or more of these symptoms, I can help you get back to your balanced self again.
Who you love, the way you love, and how you love others and yourself all make up the person that you are. We pay attention to the way you define yourself, encouraging you to accept, understand, and embrace your sexuality.
We all have different ways of coping with what life throws at us. From unsuitable relationships with people and food, to hiding behind your career, negative coping patterns can have a big impact on our lives. Together, we can work to help you change the way you cope, and find more positive ways to deal with life’s challenges.
How you view yourself and your position in the world influences the way you live your life. When that’s not particularly positive, the effects can be hard to deal with. Together, we can find lots of ways to build self-esteem and, most importantly, give you the means to sustain it.
When you become a parent, it’s easy to lose sight of yourself and your individual needs. From pregnancy and newborn babies right through to teens and adulthood, our children require us to continually redefine who we are as people and as parents. Together, we can find a way to balance your personal needs with those of your family.
Feeling anxious can lead to panic attacks, irrational fears and rigid, repetitive behaviors that can stop you from living the way you want. Together, we can spend time helping you understand what lies behind your feelings of anxiety, and give you the means to keep it under control. I can help you with Anxiety Therapy in TriBeCa.
