The Brooklyn Counseling Services ‘App’



Low Self Esteem?

Some people seek psychotherapy because they have felt depressed, anxious or angry for a long time or may want help for a chronic illness that is interfering with their emotional or physical well-being. Others may have short-term problems they need help navigating, such as a divorce, facing an empty nest, feeling overwhelmed by a new job or grieving a family member’s death.

Symptoms can include changes in mood, personality, personal habits and social withdrawal. Mental illnesses have no boundaries, it can affect people of any age, race, religion or income.

Counseling can help you take control of your life, your self-esteem and your confidence. Counseling will give you the tools to respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.

Contact BCS Group now to begin the journey to emotional well-being.

At Brooklyn Women’s Counseling Services we believe that education is an important piece of our patient’s treatment.  We hope to provide you with the tools and resources to assist you outside of your counseling session.

Our Mission...

Nicoletta Pallotta, MD, LCSW
CEO & Founder

“22 years ago, I opened my first Counseling Practice in Brooklyn, New York. I had a vision of building a successful psychotherapy center for women, focusing on their individual emotional struggles.

With more than two decades of professional growth and personal soul searching, I decided I wanted to reach a wider and diverse population of women. It was time for me to grow BCS, to develop additional Counseling Services throughout Brooklyn and introduce online counseling services. With the unwavering help and support of the BCS team, our mission continues to be, designing mental health programs that will enable the emotional growth of women from our communities.

Our new BCS logo is symbolic of the road we have traveled, embracing the diversity and growth we have achieved and our continued mission to create programs that help all women.”

Our friends may annoy us, but they can also keep us going. Friendship is a crucial element in protecting our mental health. We need to talk to our friends andRead more →

When we’re in the thick of it, life can feel incredibly difficult.  Even the simplest tasks can feel overwhelming, andRead more →

    Are you feeling stuck in your life or helpless?

    Are you feeling stuck in your life or helpless?

    Many people do. Sometimes it feels as if we simply cannot move on with our life, we feel helpless and simply do not know what to do. It’s quite scary to be confronted with an invisible obstacle you cannot seem to tackle. Even though the situation may seem hopeless, there’s much you can do aboutRead more →
