not just "bridal chatter"
Wedding stress is real. Don't let anyone tell you different.
Each bride goes through this experience differently.
For some, finances and budgeting are the chief concerns.
For others, it's balancing the varying opinions and expectations of everyone involved in the process.
For many, body image and weight loss become a focus.
For most, it's a combination of many of these issues happening at once, all while trying to nurture your partnership as you both transition through this important milestone.
Whether it's bridesmaids, budgets, or bands - no stress is too big or small to work out during your AisleTalk session.
Here are some common concerns we look at:
finances and budgeting
balancing family expectations and opinions
introducing two sets of families and friends
crossing cultures and religions
coping with body image concerns or low self esteem
time management and competing responsibilities
Here at AisleTalk, we know that no two clients are the same, and no two journeys down the aisle require the same exact support. We provide therapeutic services that are right for you. Scroll through our services below to learn more about each & contact me for rates and special packages.

Landis Bejar is the head and heart behind AisleTalk.
Landis moved from Miami, Florida to New York City to pursue her graduate studies at Columbia University. Landis went on to graduate with masters degrees in counseling psychology and mental health counseling and earned her license as a New York State Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). Landis has extensive experience working with adults, children, couples and families coping with a variety of emotional concerns, including: anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, couple and family stress, financial struggles, career and academic stress, concerns related to sexuality and gender identity, self-esteem, and disordered eating.
After planning her own wedding in 2015, Landis became fascinated with the emotional experience that arises during the wedding planning process. She began to explore this issue with colleagues and friends and found that, for most, even when it is a joyful experience, it could still prove to be uniquely stressful time, often setting the scene for heightened emotion, pressure, and expectation in a relatively short period of time. She found that most stressors that come up during wedding planning are the same stressors that bring most people to therapy at other points in their lives, but wedding planning seemed to bring out many of these issues at once!
Landis's therapeutic style is warm, nonjudgmental, client-centered, and goal-focused. Knowing that a strong therapeutic relationship can be responsible for 80% of successful client outcomes, that is where she starts working toward your goals: building a trusting, collaborative relationship, rooted in the client’s strengths. From there, she integrates techniques of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), person-centered therapy, emotionally-focused couples therapy (EFT), mindfulness practices, and psychodynamic therapy based on each client’s unique needs and preferences. Landis appreciates and incorporates honest feedback throughout the therapeutic process to make it the most meaningful it can be for each client who walks through her door.
