Professional statement

Goldie Gotesman LCSW licensed in New York and New Jersey works exclusively via teletherapy. Are you dealing with: anxiety, ADHD, OCD, pressure of being a caregiver or the weight grief? You're not alone. These issues can be incredibly taxing, impacting various aspects of your life and leaving you feeling overwhelmed. These issues can be incredibly taxing, impacting various aspects of your life and leaving you feeling overwhelmed.

In our sessions, we'll create a safe space where you can explore these feelings without judgment. Together, we'll identify the root causes of your stress and anxiety, whether it's intrusive thoughts, difficulty focusing, or the demands of caregiving or grief. Understanding these triggers is crucial in developing tailored strategies to help you regain a sense of control and balance in your life.

You may be yearning for a sense of calm amidst the chaos, a feeling of being more in tune with yourself and your surroundings. Our goal is to work towards achieving that peace of mind, equipping you with practical coping mechanisms and skills to navigate life's challenges more effectively.

By incorporating evidence-based modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, we'll address the negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be exacerbating your stress and anxiety. Through this process, we'll gradually reshape these patterns, fostering a more positive outlook and enhancing your overall well-being.

I understand that taking the first step towards therapy can be daunting, but rest assured, I'm here to support you every step of the way. Your comfort and trust in our therapeutic relationship are paramount, and I'm committed to providing a compassionate and collaborative environment where you can feel heard and understood.

Together, we'll work towards unlocking your potential for a happier, more fulfilling life.
