Helping New Yorkers reduce anxiety and improve relationships
Hi, I'm Anna
I’m a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist. I love helping the people I work with reconnect to what excites them in their lives. I use a mindfulness based approach to help people be present in the moment. We will bring attention to the body to make space for what you’re feeling. I will support you to feel confident expressing yourself clearly with others. Together, we'll create a compassionate space for self-reflection and empowerment.
We will develop clarity around what you’re looking for as well as notice any patterns in relationships. I will support you in using direct communication to clarify needs and improve relational intimacy. I work with many people who are looking to recover from impacts of the pandemic and rebuild community.
If you are feeling held back by negative thought patterns, we will discuss where those beliefs come from, reflect on your strengths, and cultivate inner self trust. I also work with artists to support the creative process.
The people I work with are often second generation and/or queer folks who both celebrate these identities and are recovering from societal messaging. We will develop a deeper understanding of your needs and embracing your authentic self.
Perhaps you’re feeling burnt out at work, going through a breakup, moving to a new place, are seeing your parent aging, or seeing changes in your friend group. We will be curious about your goals in a supportive space, to help you through the transition and find ways to thrive in the new stage.
I use an approach to therapy called Attachment Focused EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization reprocessing), which has been very successful in working with trauma. You can learn more about this approach below.
