How our Scarsdale, NY Therapists help for chronic pain

Together, we'll explore:

  • The mind-body connection: How your thoughts and emotions can influence your pain experience.

  • Developing coping strategies: Finding tools to manage pain triggers and build resilience.

  • Cultivating self-compassion: Learning to treat yourself with kindness and acceptance, even on difficult days.

  • Reclaiming your life: Identifying activities and goals that bring meaning and joy, despite the pain.

Our approach is gentle, curious and holistic, tailored to your unique needs and goals. We draw from a range of evidence-based techniques, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Understanding how thoughts and beliefs influence pain perception and developing healthier coping mechanisms.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): Accepting pain as a part of your experience while pursuing meaningful activities and values.

  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): Cultivating present-moment awareness and reducing emotional reactivity to pain.

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Reprocessing traumatic experiences that are connected to the chronic pain or illness, as well as the traumatic stress related to living with a chronic condition.
