Reclaiming What Was Lost: Helping BIPOC Couples & Families Navigate Chronic Illness and Caregiving
Adjusting to a chronic illness?
Living with a chronic illness can be incredibly difficult to manage, both physically and mentally. The toll it can take on your mental health is often overlooked, underestimated, or dismissed so it is easy to feel anxious or overwhelmed in managing and living with the illness. Life with a chronic illness also puts a strain on relationships, intimate or platonic. Nevertheless, having support from those around you as well as therapy for chronic illness can make all the difference in one’s quality of life and happiness.
Are you a caregiver?
Hi, I'm Dr. Francesca Owoo
It may take some time to find the right NYC couples therapist for you, but the benefits of a skilled clinician can be invaluable for improving your relationship and overall well-being.
When I think of someone seeking therapy, I think of four key concepts: Community. Intergenerational Connections. Relationships. Systems. All of these concepts are interconnected and play an important role in shaping a person’s lived experiences. By exploring these factors in therapy, you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner, and your family members.
We are not isolated beings, but part of a larger system that includes family, friends, and community. When working with clients, I utilize a holistic approach to explore intergenerational and relational dynamics that have shaped your life. By exploring the history and culture of my clients, I can help you understand how your past experiences have influenced your present relationships. Through this process, you’ll gain insight into your own behavior, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and improve your communication skills.
How Can I Help You?
As your therapist, my goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings at your own pace…in the comfort of your own home. Together, we’ll work to identify your unique challenges and develop strategies to help you overcome them. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression, medical trauma, or any other mental health issue, I am here to support you on your path towards healing.
“Does online therapy work?” Online therapy for mental health services has become increasingly popular in recent years. You may be skeptical about the effectiveness of online sessions, but studies have shown that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. One of the main advantages of telehealth is the convenience which allows you to connect with me from almost anywhere via secure video or phone calls. This can be beneficial for you if you have a busy schedule or limited access to in-person therapy.
If you’re struggling in your relationship or looking to rebuild your family dynamics, seeking therapy can be that helpful step towards healing and strengthening your bonds. As an NYC couples therapist, I can provide guidance and support as you work towards putting your relationship first and rebuilding your connection.
