I'm Glad You're Here.

Hello, I'm Dr. Lauren Sosenko. With a lifelong interest in the healing arts and developing strong and influential interpersonal relationships, I have developed a practice where I can be a guide to help individuals navigate life's challenges. I use a combination of mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and interpersonal modalities to help relieve your symptoms and be a supportive entity as you move into a new phase in your life.

 

What I do.

 
Curliecue
 
 

I focus on Perinatal Mental Health with a special interest in supporting women and men through pregnancy and into new parenthood. I help new parents find their identities as mothers and fathers. I also work with mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, and addiction.

 

Pregnancy Support

Whether it's your first or a subsequent pregnancy, unexpected complications can arise, causing changes in one's mood and/or increasing one's level of anxiety. I provide a supportive environment in which I help the family understand and work through these challenges. It is one of my sincerest joys to work with women throughout their pregnancy and help them transform sensitive emotions that arise during this time into a meaningful and cohesive maternal identity.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders (PMADs) can feel so overwhelming and insurmountable.  In our work together we will address the difficulties of the transition to motherhood, while offering hope, healing, and a network of resources tailored to your individual needs. I use a combination of mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and interpersonal modalities to relieve the symptoms and help you find your way to your best self.

New Parents and Family

The early days, months, and even years of parenthood can be very challenging and not at all what one expected. I am skilled at supporting new parents who may be struggling with conflicting emtotions and feeling isolated in early parenthood.  Together we can navigate those challenges and create a plan for adjusting to the demands of this major life transition.

Who I am.

 
Curliecue
 
 

I have a lifelong interest in the healing arts and in developing strong and influential interpersonal relationships. Out of that experience, I have developed a practice where I can be a guide to help individuals navigate life's challenges. My clinical focus is helping both men and women with mood and anxiety disorders related to childhood issues, traumatic experiences, and prenatal or postpartum struggles.

I was also drawn to maternal mental health treatment by my own experience becoming a new mother. Inspired by those challenges, I obtained my certificate in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and maternal mental health in order to competently support new parents.

 I welcome all families into my practice.  I am familiar with some of the themes and stigmas placed upon those who do not have a traditional family structure, and warmly accept parents and individuals from diverse backgrounds, including members of the LGBTQ community.

What is feeling better?

Feeling better is about connecting. When you feel connected and validated, you can move toward your best self. In a safe environment of trust and empathy, I can help you go there.

I focus on Perinatal Mental health, with a special interest in supporting women and men through pregnancy and beyond. I also work with mood and anxiety disorders, traumatic experiences, substance abuse, and other life challenges.

Connecting to your past and your present allows you to create your future. I would like to help you create your own future from that place of connection.

 

Credentials

 
Dr. Lauren Sosenko Office | Perinatal Therapy | Brooklyn NY
 

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a member of Postpartum Support International. I graduated in 2004 from the University of Florida with my B.S. in Psychology. I obtained my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Nova Southeastern University where I strongly focused on the evidence-based treatment of both major mental illness and trauma. I obtained my clinical experience in Manhattan, where I treated individuals working though issues related to trauma, substance abuse, and mood disorders. I furthered my clinical experience at Community Health Center in Connecticut, receiving a Ryan White grant to provide individual therapy to people living with HIV and mental health issues. Additionally, I was an in-house psychologist for women living in a domestic violence shelter, where I focused on attenuation of symptoms of severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and helped them reintegrate into society. In 2012, I relocated to California, where I began working in the private sector and expanded my clinical work to include family therapy and maternal mental health.
