Nancy Giffen, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Woodbridge
Psychotherapy provides an opportunity for self-discovery and change. I assist people in finding more effective solutions to the concerns that bring them into therapy. People often feel stuck and don't know how to make the shift into something different. I am committed to helping clients achieve their desired outcome. I work collaboratively with you to find how past events may have shaped the direction of your current life. Through a customized approach, we can remove the barriers that may be hindering you from creating your envisioned life.
In a safe, supportive, and compassionate atmosphere, I work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, death, divorce, life transitions and changes, questions about identity, as well as people struggling with everyday life. I specialize in assisting those experiencing a loss of self and help them regain their footing.
I use a holistic, mindful approach in my work. I have led workshops and groups on facilitating self-discovery and change, which often guide people to a deeper and fuller relationship with themselves. Visit my blog "Awareness is Everything"
