Parenting and pregnancy can be both intensely rewarding and emotionally demanding experiences that can be especially difficult for parents with depression, anxiety, and trauma. This DBT group is specifically designed for Pregnant and Postpartum women. An adaptation of Marsha Linehan's Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills group will seek to offer concrete therapeutic skills that target frequent areas of difficulty in the perinatal and early parenting period.
Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.
At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.
The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.
