Helping BIPOC Couples & Families Take Back What Was Lost Due to Chronic Illness

Adjusting to a chronic illness?

If you have a chronic illness, sooner or later, your mental health will be affected by bouts of depression or anxiety. You may also experience a strain in your relationship with your partner. Regardless of how you currently feel about yourself or other aspects of your life since your diagnosis, know that you do not have to deal with this by yourself. Therapy for chronic illness can help you live a better and happier life.

Are you a caregiver?

Caregiver responsibilities can take a toll on your mind, body, and spirit. As a caregiver, your role may fill you with dread and anxiety. You may also be worried about other areas of your life that have become neglected because of your caregiver role. Apart from all of these, physical exhaustion is another menace that comes with caregiving. With therapy for caregiver burnout, you will learn how to manage your time between your caregiver duties and other aspects of your life.

Hi, I'm Dr. Francesca Owoo

Have you been searching for an NYC couples therapist who can help you put your relationship first or piece yourself together?

I’m a firm believer in a holistic approach, so I use systemic perspectives and a culturally-sensitive model when working with clients. That’s a fancy way of saying you’ll be able to understand how family-of-origin, generational patterns, values, and behavior/thoughts impact who you are and your communication and coping style.

How Can I Help You?

I understand that creating time out of your already busy schedule for in-person sessions may be difficult. That’s why my practice is completely telehealth. ’Does online therapy work’ is a common question in regards to telehealth. I can imagine being doubtful…One of the key benefits of online therapy is that you can connect with me almost anywhere via video or phone calls through a secure third-party platform.

I know that every situation is unique, so my job is to provide tailored sessions that suit your needs and schedule. We will work together to address your challenges at your pace. While I may not know the intricacies of every illness, my job as your therapist is to ensure you get a safe space where you can feel heard without any judgments. Put your relationship first and piece yourself together with the help of NYC couples therapist, Dr. Francesca Owoo.
