Dealing with memories of childhood sexual abuse, trauma, abandonment, anxiety, and depression can really feel like living on a roller coaster. Letting go of trauma, memories of abandonment, and people that have hurt you is one of the most difficult things to do. We’re expected as humans in our society and culture to carry on with our lives, forgive and forget. However, in our interactions with friends and in all relationships, we are often triggered by vulnerable experiences that have ties to our pasts.

Individual Counseling in Herald Square, NYC:

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” -Maya Angelou

I specialize working with adults who have suffered complex trauma, domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, and/or sexual trauma in adulthood dealing with issues related to post traumatic stress, traumatic attachment, family of origin issues, depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, and anger. I work from a depth perspective.

In a safe and nurturing environment, individual counseling facilitates healing, personal discovery, empowerment, and growth. We all have a story- perhaps yours is of a traumatic family history, negative family influence, a past abusive relationship, abandonment, or sexual abuse. In individual counseling, I focus on the inner emotional world of my clients who have endured various types of trauma in childhood and in adulthood. I seek to understand their untold stories and painful pasts that are being carried at the innermost spaces of the heart.

You can also benefit from counseling even if you are not in crisis. A therapist can be a witness to your journey and can support both your achievements and challenges along the way.

  • Do you feel depressed, anxious, or panic?
  • Do you have an untold story of childhood physical/sexual abuse or abandonment?
  • Is it difficult for you to trust people?
  • Do you often feel guilt or shame?
  • Are you finding it difficult to be happy?
  • Have you suffered sexual trauma?
  • Have you suffered domestic violence?
  • Are you struggling with low self esteem?

How Individual Counseling Can Help You

Part of the journey within individual counseling is self-evaluation and intrinsic reflection to process past hurts and trauma, remove roadblocks getting in the way of full connection to yourself, cultivate feelings of empowerment, and responsibility over your life. Only you can claim your life! Consensual validation and being understood by a therapist can be restorative in itself and helps to model and reinforce your own compassion and support. In time, as healing and growth occur during our journey together, you will feel empowered to move forward from your traumatic past, hurts, as well as, break patterns of learned helplessness and distrust of self. As you develop conscious awareness of who you are and what is most meaningful to you, you will navigate the world through a fresh new safe perspective.
