Faige Flakser, LCSW, PLLC
I am licensed in NY, NJ, FL, OR and NV, and work with individual adults, many of whom struggle with the fallout of traumatic experiences. I helps clients develop a present sense of safety and process through the difficult memories from their trauma. My focus is on making real progress; work with me is gentle yet deep. Gentle; through my nonjudgmental and complete acceptance of the authentic human experience. Deep; where I get straight to the core of what brings clients to therapy. My practice is trauma-focused, rooted in a deep understanding of the effects of trauma and specializing in addressing and fighting the internalized shame of clients.
Coping is about finding safety and healing within, so your true essence can unfold with healthier ways of being. I bring a sense of agency and empowerment, so you can already begin to reverse the devastating effects of things happening to you. My stance is “What happened to you” instead of “What’s wrong with you”, and we work at the pace that you need.
I deeply believe in the human capacity to heal from trauma. I understand how complex trauma can be, and can hold space for multiple feelings to exist at once, even feelings that are confusing. I invite you to have a brief phone consultation, free of charge, where you can get a feel if this can work for you because it needs to feel right and you deserve that.
