Anxiety can keep you caught in a loop of endless worry. An online anxiety therapist can help.
Yet you feel stuck and burned out. Something has got to give, but what and how?
Who has time for driving to therapy? You don’t have any time for yourself or your family now.
You may have even tried therapy before, but that person didn’t “get it” or you.

Momentum Psychology was founded by a psychologist and former corporate attorney who felt like you because she was like you.

When Dr. Jan Newman was burned out as a lawyer, she tried coaches and therapists. She was told by everyone, “you’re working too much to enjoy your life” (really? you’re kidding!) and “nothing will ever change until you make better choices about your job” (read – you need to quit your job and still figure out how to pay me). She even had one therapist who lectured her about setting boundaries with a senior partner who asked her to work late even when her firm was doling out layoffs, and she had already paid the late cancellation fee. Not helpful.
Super unhelpful. No understanding. No middle ground. And

most had never worked one day in the legal profession or in any corporate environment. No one got it

Right now, you might feel disconnected from the people and things that matter. The disconnect leads you to feel stuck and disillusioned. So, your relationships and career suffer.

Unfortunately, as a successful lawyer or law student, there are barriers to getting help. You may have tried therapy before and worked with a therapist who just didn’t “get it.” You don’t need another lecture on how you’re working too hard. You don’t have enough time as it is. If you are going to dedicate the time to therapy, it needs to work. And that hasn’t happened yet.

Again, Momentum Psychology was founded by someone who has been there and done that.

You may have worked with therapists who don’t understand your struggles as a high-achieving, driven, and multi-passionate person. So, you’re left without the help you need. You’re merely surviving instead of thriving. Unfortunately, this can cause stress, depression, anxiety, and burnout.

Effective therapy can address the problems that are holding you back. So, you can continue on the path to reaching your greatest potential. Many of our therapists are working professionals and parents (of human and furry children), and they get that you are extremely busy and that the thought of adding one more thing to your list of obligations can feel overwhelming.

Therapy can address the problems that are holding you back. So, you can continue on the path to reaching your greatest potential. Many of our therapists are working professionals and parents (of human and furry children), and they get that you are extremely busy and that the thought of adding one more thing to your list of obligations can feel overwhelming.
We also know that therapy can dramatically improve your quality of life. It can help you avoid becoming burnt out in your career which can prevent you from moving forward and achieving greater success. Also, the goal is that it will have a long-term impact. Our hope is that you will learn to be your own best coach and therapist long after we’ve finished working together.

Finally, therapy doesn’t have to take forever. To help fit therapy into your life, we offer our services exclusively through online therapy using our secure HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing system.

We’re not going to lie to you – the biggest predictor of outcomes in any therapy is the effort that the client puts into therapy.

Consistency is the key to results because the brain learns and changes quicker if we keep the “dose” steady. Reading, doing experiential practice outside of session, and more.

Yet you can increase the chances of success with a therapist who is ride or die on your side and in it to help you win it. And we’re all over that here armed with evidence-based models and years of experience to help you achieve the rich and fulfilling life you want.

If you walk the talk and we do the work, we can help you get there. We also want you to be open and honest with us about what’s working and what isn’t. You’re entering a no-shaming and no-judgment zone, and if you’ve never felt what that’s like, get ready for some serious life change.


If you are a lawyer, judge, or law student experiencing any of these life challenges, therapy can help.


With lawyers and law students, we use therapy techniques which are based in the most current research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science including:

Our goal is to collaborate with you, so you can master positive coping skills, and change your behaviors. We will work together to figure out what’s been keeping you from feeling fulfilled. As a busy lawyer or law student, you may be wondering how long therapy may take?

The answer is, it varies depending on what you need to gain from our work together. It’s important that while we are creating meaningful and lasting change in your life that we are talking about your successes. By measuring and observing the change you are making, we can make a clear plan on how to move forward in therapy. I hope that when you have met your goals that you will feel a sense of peace. I want you to feel like you’re more efficient, have a clear plan for your future, and feel better about your job and personal life.

I also offer skills groups and classes for lawyers and other professionals, including parenting classes. These can be very powerful experiences to work through skills and situations with others who are in your shoes. If you’re interested in my group offerings, please complete my group interest form.
