Stress & Anxiety
Stress and anxiety have become one of the most common mental health issues in the United States. We are living in an increasingly complex world that puts our minds into “fight or flight” mode constantly. Work, family, and other life pressures can build up our stress to the point of physical illness and mental breakdowns. You don’t need to feel this way. Our therapists have helped clients settle their stressed minds and we can help you too.
Mood swings can be caused by a number of factors. This can be depression, anger management issues, the trauma of life events, or our current living situation. Our mission is to find the root causes of the unsettled mind so we can work on a plan towards healing and inner peace.
It might seem like there’s no way to save a relationship that has been harmed by infidelity. After all, it’s one of the most severe traumas to a relationship which leads to feelings of betrayal, intense anger, victimhood, and even loss of love or attraction. The truth is, your relationship can heal and can even become stronger than it was before. We’ve helped many accomplish this and we can help you too.
Family Member Conflict
Family members bicker and argue for many reasons. Some are trivial and can be resolved easily. Some are severe enough to damage our relationships with loved ones and persist for years. Our therapists can dig into these conflicts with you and help you open new paths of communication. This is where conflict resolution and healing begins.
We’ve all experienced feelings of avoidance and fear. These are healthy emotions that keep us safe from the various life dangers that come our way. It’s when these feelings become persistent, irrational, and unproductive that we have a problem. Our counselors will help you identify the source of your avoidance tendencies and develop a plan for overcoming them.
Teenage years can be some of the most confusing, stressful, and plain scary of our lives. Teenagers commonly deal with school pressures, bullies, new and old relationships, negative home situations, and more. Our therapists specialize in reaching young people, establishing bonds, and guiding them towards a happier, healthier life.
Depression is one of the most common mental health issues in the world and comes in many forms. It is commonly associated with persistent feelings of helplessness, negative thinking, and numbness. These thought patterns trap us in a pervasive cycle of pain and unhappiness. We will help you identify and conquer the root causes of your depression and help you towards a better life.
Isolation & Loneliness
Modern-day life has become more and more distant over time. Living in a post-pandemic world has only accentuated this trend and its negative effects. Our minds crave social stimulation and meaningful relationships. Living without them can trap us in a depressed state where we are less likely to pursue these relationships. Simply talking to a professional counselor is a powerful first step in overcoming these issues.

Psychotherapy Services for Brooklyn, NY
The certified counselors at Eclectic Counseling Brooklyn provide a number of psychotherapy services to the citizens of New York. Together, our team covers a wide range of modalities and methodologies, practiced with empathy, compassion, and care. Let’s take a moment to go over some of our team’s specialties and expertise.
Depression is the most common mental health issue in the world. Millions of people around are suffering from it at any given moment. Aso, nearly 90% of the victims of clinical depression never receive professional treatment.
If you are suffering from feelings of depression, hopelessness, fear, doubt, numbness, anxiety, or anything related, you’re not alone. Feeling this pain every now and then is normal, but it shouldn’t be something you deal with every day or every week. The guidance and care of a mental health professional can do wonders for your happiness and inner peace. Seeking help is the best first step you can make.
Couples therapy is the most common of all counseling services in 2021. Our world is becoming increasingly complex, causing unexpected complexities in our relationships. Romantic involvement is complicated regardless, but studies are showing divorce rates in excess of 50% nowadays. The good news is that marriage counseling has proved to be effective over 80% of the time! You don’t have to be married to seek out relationship help though.
We provide individual and couples counseling for pre-marital relationships, same-sex couples, couples with age gaps, and anybody who wants to strengthen or repair their relationships. Individual sessions allow you to dive into deep-seated issues in a safe environment of non-judgment. Group/couples sessions give you and your partner the chance to explore pain points and identify issues together, with the help of an experienced moderator. We’ll help you get back to the very best of your relationship.
Teenage years are some of the most complicated and stressful of a young person’s life. It’s easy to forget or downplay the struggles of our youth, but our children and relatives might need help. One study showed that over 70% of teens suffer from at least one mental health issue, yet over 80% never receive treatment.
Getting your teenager aligned with a certified teen therapist is one of the best things you can do for their future. Improving a young person’s mental health has compounding effects on their relationships and success in life. If your teenager refuses to go to therapy, give them a chance to choose their own therapist. Let them have an active part in the decision-making process and you’ll be surprised at how involved they become. Our therapists don’t tell your teenager what to do, they listen and become a much-needed friend.
Online or virtual therapy is the fastest-growing mental health practice in the United States – and the reasons are clear. You can experience the same benefits of traditional mental health counseling from the comfort of your own home!
The world is turning more and more into a virtual environment. The team at Eclectic Counseling has been aware of this trend and have become experts in the field of virtual therapy. Our clients consistently receive the incredible benefits of depression therapy, couples counseling, teenage therapy, and much more, where they want, when they want.
Give us a call and we’ll set up a time to meet online. You’ll see the value immediately with our experts in online therapy.
I was at the lowest point of my life when I found Eclectic Counseling Brooklyn. I had severe depression and was consuming alcohol to cope. Flash forward two years and things couldn’t be more different. I’m happier and healthier than I’ve ever been. Thank you Eclectic Counseling!
Without Marina and Eclectic Counseling, I seriously doubt my marriage would have held together. We were growing apart more and more every day and it felt like there was no way back. The individual and couples therapy sessions showed us we were much closer than we thought and that we can make it through anything.
My husband and I were both packed and heading out the door when we came to the workshop in the fall… We both really thought that the relationship was hopeless and were surprised when your tips and techniques helped us to improve both our communication skills and our relationship. Thank you so much. You really helped us to find a way to remain together and begin to enjoy each other.
