Heal your trauma with evidence-based teletherapy.

Trauma casts a shadow over all those good areas of your life – your emotions, your relationships, your happiness. It also gets in the way of something very important for your well-being – a sense of safety.

Confronting your trauma can feel daunting, but it’s one of the most empowering steps you can take toward a life of peace, wellbeing, and belonging. Most importantly, it doesn’t have to take a whole lifetime.

Get back your sense of self and open the door to the real you.

With online trauma therapy at WeRise NYC, we use holistic (aka, mind, body, and spirit) techniques to equip you with the resilience you need to overcome your trauma. 

Together with a qualified mental health professional, you can rewrite your trauma story without having to relive the experience. Our Trauma Fast Track approach can get life-changing results in as little as 3-6 sessions. 

Your trauma treatment plan may include:

  • EMDR Therapy
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
  • Subconscious Reprogramming

Overcome phobias with NYC teletherapy.

Living with a phobia can feel like walking on a tightrope: never sure when you might lose your balance. Is the next trigger waiting around the corner or are you safe today? When fear takes the wheel, it can hijack your thoughts, actions, and entire emotional wellbeing: leaving you paralyzed.

While it’s common to rely on avoidance or isolation, it is actually possible to encounter your biggest fear and not let it control you. Without the shadow of a phobia, you can regain your freedom, increase your confidence, build stronger relationships, and step into a brighter, more vibrant world where anything is possible.

You are the one in control, especially when you learn the right techniques.

Therapy can help you overcome your fears and maladaptive thinking patterns. Through personalized one-on-one therapy sessions, you are gently guided to explore the roots of your phobias, unraveling the tangled knots of anxiety that have held them captive for so long.

At WeRise NYC, our toolkit includes traditional talk therapy, EMDR, CBT, and Subconscious Reprogramming. Our skilled therapists will use a customized mix of these techniques to help you live a happier, stronger, braver, and more resilient life.

confidential support at your fingertips

Improve your relationship with virtual couples therapy.

Everyone wants the ‘perfect’ relationship … but that’s just a fairy tale. Real human relationships involve issues and conflict from time to time. Without the right tools, small things compound over time and before you know it, your entire relationship is falling apart. The result is a partnership where you’re constantly walking on eggshells, waiting for the next shoe to drop.

When our relationships face issues, we’re often left overwhelmed, stressed, and disconnected. Common issues that bring couples to therapy include:

  • Communication breakdown
  • Conflict
  • Trust issues
  • Navigating family issues
  • Infidelity
  • Should we stay together?

Imagine if you and your partner could fight with love.

Relationships can bring our deepest vulnerabilities to the surface. However, if you’re ready to address the challenges head on, there is infinite room for growth (both in your relationship and in yourself). 

With the right tools and techniques paired with expert guidance, you can foster deep connection, quality communication, and life-affirming trust and intimacy.

What would it be like to actually feel heard? 

Online Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling with WeRise NYC can help you achieve just that. Our skilled therapists are committed to helping you address and overcome your relationship issues. 

You’ll learn tools and techniques to navigate conflict, excel in communication, and ultimately strengthen the bond that brought you two together.

Parenting is tough – online therapy New York helps you find balance.

Being pregnant or a new parent comes with a rollercoaster of emotions. Perinatal mood disorders make parenthood even more challenging than it already is. As a new parent you might struggle with:

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Irritability
  • Feelings of inadequacy as a parent
  • Intrusive thoughts and fears

You don’t have to feel so alone in your struggle. Parenthood is challenging, but we can learn to navigate its obstacles and bring to balance to ourselves and our family. With therapy, you can learn how to be the parent you know you can be.

We help new parents just like you by creating a safe, comfortable space to express your concerns. Together, we’ll learn tools to keep your life in check while enhancing your bond with your little one.
