A panic attack is an intense and abrupt rush of anxiety, fear, or terror that heightens and peaks within minutes (from five to 15 minutes or more). Panic attacks can affect anyone. They can be recurring or occasional and may be triggered by stressful events or happen suddenly. They can also be a symptom of mental health or medical conditions (i.e., anxiety, thyroid issues, heart or respiratory problems).
If you suffer from panic attacks, please remember you are not alone. Like you, many suffer from these frightening experiences. But you don’t have to. With the right support and care, you can learn to overcome panic and live well again. Here at Madison Park Psychological Services, we offer therapy for panic attacks to help the NYC community find serenity and peace.
If you are experiencing obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, you may be suffering from OCD. OCD is a common disorder that may affect adults, teens, and children. If left untreated, OCD can impact your work, school, family, and relationships, causing severe distress and anxiety. OCD therapy can help you address your obsessions and compulsions so you can continue to live your life. Here at Madison Park Psychological Services, we offer OCD therapy and other psychotherapy and specialty options to our NYC neighbors. OCD therapy will allow you to dive deep into your symptoms, examine obsessive thoughts and discover what is behind your compulsion triggers. The goal of OCD therapy is to empower you with the necessary tools to manage symptoms on your own and embrace a fulfilling life.

Depression therapy can help you steer your life along these challenging waves to restore your sense of joy, hope, and purpose. Regardless of your particular risk factors or signs associated with depression, the sooner we treat it, the more effective treatment can be.

Are you feeling isolated, alone, and missing out on connection? Do you struggle to make new friends? Or are you going through a rough patch in your romantic life? Whether you want to make amends, strengthen the bond with a relative, or form meaningful connections, relationship therapy can help. Relationship issues are overwhelming and can easily affect other areas of your life. Don’t wait for that to happen. We are here to support you on your path toward stable and lasting connections. Relationship therapy (or therapy for relationship issues) is a line of treatment designed to address relationship problems and foster wholesome connections. This includes handling challenges in romantic partnerships, friendships, family, or work relations, among others.
A person’s sexual orientation refers to the gender or genders that one is romantically, erotically, and/or emotionally attracted to. The development of your sexuality and romantic identities is a highly personal process and it is completely normal for people to change and evolve over time. People within the LGBTQIA+ community are often at higher risk of discrimination, victimization, bullying, social stigma, and rejection from family, friends, and/or community. These experiences can impact psychological functioning and can increase the prevalence of anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation, adjustment difficulties, lower quality of life, and relationship concerns. Seeing a therapist can help. Finding a therapist who is knowledgeable about sexual and romantic identity can help you to better understand yourself and your place in the world. Therapy sessions can help you with internal identity exploration as well as navigating the social components of the coming out process, how to talk to family and friends, how to find community, how to advocate for yourself in the workplace, and more.
Experiencing grief is natural. But when it’s too severe and extends over time, it might become “complicated,” interfering with your ability to live, work, and do the things you love. Grief counseling, also known as grief therapy, bereavement therapy, or therapy for grief and loss, is a treatment focused on helping you navigate grief and its debilitating symptoms. It consists of meeting with a licensed therapist to discuss, process, and find helpful ways to cope with loss. The goal is not to erase or deny your experience but to manage grief in a healthy and sustainable manner so you can resume your path.
Trauma is your natural response to an event that causes distress, threatens your well-being, or puts your life in danger. Trauma can result from major or minor experiences, but the effects can be equally debilitating. Some people endure frequent or continuous painful events, such as domestic violence or multiple losses. This is called complex trauma and may cause intricate traumatic responses that change over time. PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder is a severe mental health condition that may occur after going through or witnessing a traumatic event. Trauma counseling can help you recover from trauma and PTSD.
Are you having frequent outbursts at home or work? Do you get easily upset, annoyed, and irritated? Have you been lashing out at your colleagues, loved ones, or even at strangers? If any of this resonates with you, you may be experiencing unhealthy anger. When anger becomes problematic, interferes with your daily functions, and affects people around you, it’s advised to seek help. Anger management therapy can help you navigate feelings of anger so you can live a joyful life. Our team at Madison Park Psychological Services is here for you. We offer therapy for anger and other high-quality treatment options to support the NYC area.
Gender Affirmation refers to the process of being recognized and supported in one’s true gender identity and expression. The development of your gender identity is a highly individual process and it is completely normal for it to change and evolve over time. People who identify across the gender spectrum are often at higher risk of discrimination, victimization, bullying, social stigma, and rejection from family, friends, and/or community. These experiences can impact psychological functioning and can increase the prevalence of anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation, adjustment difficulties, lower quality of life, and relationship concerns. Seeing a therapist can help. Figuring out your gender identity can be complicated, and a therapist will help you navigate the intersections between your gender and other aspects of your identity, development, and functioning. A therapist can help you with gender identity exploration and expression and navigate the components of social and/or medical transition. Therapy can also help support you through coming out to family and friends, finding community, advocating for yourself at school or in the workplace, and more.
Eating disorders are mental health illnesses consisting of persistent and dysfunctional eating behaviors. These harmful actions can hinder your physical and emotional health, as well as your ability to work, study, socialize, and perform daily activities. To get a precise diagnosis, talk to your physician, a registered dietitian, or licensed mental health professional. During an eating disorder assessment, a health professional will ask you questions, gather your history and eating habits, and perform evaluations to see if your symptoms match specific diagnostic criteria. Our staff of licensed psychotherapists has extensive experience with eating disorder symptoms and multiple therapeutic approaches.
High-functioning anxiety refers to a form of anxiety that, while draining, still allows you to complete tasks and perform regular activities. High-functioning anxiety may vary from person to person. While some people can cope with it on their own, others might need professional support to manage it. High-functioning anxiety may be a quiet struggle that pushes you to keep going while having debilitating consequences for your well-being. Therapy can help you navigate it to regain balance and nurture your peace of mind.
