About Anna N. Valianos

I believe we all find ways to survive overwhelming circumstances in our lives. At times these ways of surviving the past become issues in the present. We might feel lost, alone, powerless, and helpless. Even if we want to change, the fear and discomfort may seem like too much to face alone. My philosophy is that through relationships built on trust and validation, we can begin to venture into the unknown to acknowledge and grieve the past while exploring possibilities for change in the present.

I provide individual therapy for adults and adolescents. Typical concerns of my clients include managing the effects of trauma, relationship issues, intense emotions, and grief. As someone who identifies as Queer, I’m committed to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who are non-binary, gender diverse, and individuals exploring their sexuality and/or identities. Areas of special focus include working with survivors of sexual violence and individuals who experienced trauma in their families of origin. I have extensive experience working with survivors of child abuse and relational trauma including sexual abuse, incest, and intimate partner violence.
