Learn More About The Women's Psychotherapy Center in Freehold - The Monmouth Moms


The Women’s Psychotherapy Center is a safe place for teens and women of all ages to explore their mental health and seek evidence-based treatment for trauma, maternal mental health issues, parenting stress, anxiety, depression, and more. We offer individual therapy for adults and teens and can work with you either virtually, or in-person at our office in Freehold. Our treatment modalities include CBT, EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and more.

Spearheaded by a Clinical Director with PhD-level training and close to fifteen years of experience, our expertise lies not only in our credentials but also in our genuine passion for women’s mental health. We’re here to help you grow, evolve, and overcome the challenges that come your way. Your journey, emotions, and challenges are as unique as you are. At The Women’s Psychotherapy Center, we
intimately understand the layers of feelings and experiences that come with being a woman.


Whether it’s the weight of past traumas, the joys and anxieties of motherhood, or the quest for inner peace, we’re here to walk alongside you. Our goal isn’t just to “treat” you and usher you out the door. It’s about creating a partnership with you and providing a safe space where you’re heard, understood, and nurtured every step of the way.

Using a trauma-informed approach, we empower you to share your story, develop your mental health skills, and build resilience for the
journey ahead. With our therapists’ deep expertise in diverse therapeutic modalities and specialization in areas related to women’s mental health, we craft a therapy experience uniquely for you.
