Anxiety and Stress

Jodi B Streich, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist providing anxiety and stress counseling services in the Hoboken and New York City area. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of anxiety and stress counseling. Anxiety is defined as nervousness, apprehension, and self-doubt that may or may not be associated with real-life stressors. Everyone experiences some level of anxiety periodically, but when feelings of dread and worry are unfocused, overwhelming, recurring, and not directly linked to stressful events, anxiety may leave a person severely impaired. When anxiety interferes with daily functioning, the support of a qualified mental health professional can often be helpful. Anxiety symptoms include obtrusive, obsessive, worried thoughts, confusion and difficulty concentrating, pacing or restlessness, irritability, frustration, and despair. A person with anxiety may feel tense, with uncomfortable physical sensations such as trembling, sweating, a racing heartbeat, nausea, and difficulty breathing. The severe and sudden onset of such symptoms is often indicative of a panic attack. Anxiety can also lead to headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, and lightheadedness.

Depression and Mood Disorders

Jodi B Streich, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist providing depression & mood disorders counseling services in the Hoboken and New York City area. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of depression & mood disorders counseling. Depression is a serious, but common, illness: One in 10 adults report experiencing depression, and the condition is the most common cause of disability in the United States. The lifetime risk of any individual person becoming depressed is around 17 percent, and most people have their first bout of depression in their late teens or early twenties. The condition is slightly more common among women, but some researchers speculate that this may be because men are less likely to seek help or because their symptoms are more likely to manifest as anger than sadness. Both environmental and physiological factors can cause depression. Most mental health experts now agree that brain chemistry plays a major role. The level of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin in the brain can affect a person's risk of becoming depressed. However, life experiences affect brain chemistry, and some people become depressed after experiencing a trauma or stressful life change such as a separation or divorce, the death of a spouse, being laid off from a job, financial instability, relocation, or a decline in health. Everyday stressors, like social isolation, domestic violence, and the presence of other psychological conditions, can also contribute to depression. Sometimes depression arises as a defense mechanism in order to avoid experiencing painful emotions. Women who have recently given birth may struggle with postpartum depression in the days, weeks, or months following childbirth. NJ License # 4852, NY License # 019068.

Disease Management and Chronic Illness

Jodi B Streich, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist providing management & chronic illness counseling services in the Hoboken and New York City area. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of disease management & chronic illness counseling. Chronic illness—a condition that lasts longer than three months and can typically be managed but not cured—is believed to affect nearly half of all adult Americans, as well as approximately 8% of children under age 17. There are many types of chronic illness, and some, such as asthma and diabetes, may be managed fairly easily. Other conditions, such as heart disease, cancer, and stroke, may be more difficult to manage and may cause an increased risk of death. Disability may sometimes result from illness. Degenerative conditions in particular may lead to diminished function. Having a disability does not mean a person cannot lead an active and healthy life. A person may be affected by physical restrictions or barriers to function and may require accommodations to participate in certain activities, but it should generally not be assumed that a person with a disability is unable to pursue the same activities as any person without a disability.

Stress Management

Jodi B Streich, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist providing stress management counseling services in the Hoboken and New York City area. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of stress management counseling. Because our bodies respond to stress in different ways, we may not always recognize the sources of stress that inhibit our stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Chronic stress can negatively affect our well-being and health, which is why it is important for you to identify the "stressors" in your life. To combat stress, consider developing effective time management skills; seeking academic support; and engaging in exercises that will put your mind and body to rest.

Couples Therapy

Jodi B Streich, Ph.D. is a licensed Psychologist providing couples therapy services in the Hoboken and New York City area. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of couples therapy counseling. Our romantic relationships can be some of the most rewarding relationships of our lives. When things are truly going well, we feel happy, fulfilled, and grateful for our partners. We look forward to spending time with our partner whether dating, living together, engaged, or married. Of course, as with all relationships, things don’t always go the way we hope or planned. Life circumstances may have brought one or both of you to the point where you’re tired of arguing. Feeling resentful. Sad that you don’t feel heard. Feeling defensive. Overwhelmed. Withdrawn. Isolated. Things may be so bad now, that you feel both helpless and hopeless. Maybe you’ve reached the point where you don’t even care anymore. The tension between you is so bad that you now feel disconnected as a couple, as friends, and as lovers. Experience shows that it is helpful to look at what may be getting in the way of your ability to feel close to one another. Most need to learn more effective ways to communicate that actually work. Sometimes there is an accumulation of hurt that have piled up along the way. These sources of pain create barriers to feeling close. If both of you are willing to look beneath the surface to see what is creating the distance, then there is a better chance of repairing the wounds that are keeping you apart. These are the times in a couple’s history when it may be difficult to establish and sustain love, much less allow for love to grow and flourish with your partner If you are here, then this is probably one of those times.

Adolescent Issues

As a teen, your child is certain to face a plethora of challenges, the greatest of which may be making it through their adolescent years with their self-esteem intact. In addition, it is essential that they develop a sense of who she is and who they desire to be in the world as well as to have a ‘voice’ they feel confident in and is capable of using in a variety of forms and forums. The approach in working with your child is rooted in the belief that adolescence is a fundamentally important transitional time. It is a time during which they must be provided with guidance, support and encouragement to open up and discover who they are as an individual and how they desire to fulfill their unique and valued purpose on the planet. Some of the key areas that play a major role are: Academic performance pressures; Body image, awareness and self-acceptance; Confusion about direction and future; Dating (choices, relationships, break-ups, sexual activity); Divorce-related challenges; Friendship dynamics (growing apart, betrayal, conflicts, negative competition); Goal setting, pursuit and achievement; Low self-esteem; Peer, media & self imposed pressure; Social isolation and bullying; Stress; Time management, organization & life skills; Teen / Parent communication; NJ License # 4852, NY License # 019068.

With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Jodi has experience in a variety of return-to-work psychological risk assessment services. Return-to-work assessment is a management initiated intervention to conduct an interview/assessment with an employee to resolve a stress or performance-related sickness absence problem. The objective of the process is to determine the underlying causes of the absence. Crucially, the return to work assessment also seeks to determine how best the employee can be supported back into work, and will advise on any adjustments or changes in job role that may be required. Employees in these circumstances can pose a risk either to themselves, an organization, or to colleagues working with them. Risk assessments are particularly valuable in safety sensitive roles and in safeguarding environments where an employee may have contact with vulnerable children or adults. The provision of psychological and psychiatric assessments is a powerful and pro-active resource that helps employers reach a resolution in complex and long-term cases of stress-related sickness absence.
