Anya Surnitsky, LCSW
We use Brene Brown’s work on attachment to talk about security,
safety, how we get our needs met, and how to survive when our needs
aren't being met. What we all want is to be seen, heard, and to
feel valued. Oftentimes, we are triggered due to Childhood
Emotional Neglect (CEN), and trauma, which creates conflict in our
relationships. We talk about shame, and Brene Brown’s antidote,
which is empathy. In order for shame to survive, it requires
secrecy, silence, and judgment.

Anya Surnitsky is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private
practice outside Philadelphia, PA. She helps anxious high achievers
and overgivers with big wounded hearts to transform their pain into
power and avoidance into action.
Anya uses her training in EMDR, Ego State Therapy, and Childhood Emotional Neglect, as well as her certification in The Daring WayTM to aid clients in making peace with the past, embrace the present, and develop confidence for the future. Anya is passionate about educating clients on how trauma and/or neglect affects the developing brain to understand how unhealed wounds from the past show up in the present and can have a negative impact on their future. With these various approaches, Anya shows clients how to heal from both a top-down and a bottom-up approach; we can heal the brain so it can learn to help itself, and we can also learn skills to help ourselves on a conscious level.
Throughout her personal and professional journey, Anya has learned that what people want more than anything is to be seen and heard for who they are at their core. For Unapologetically Sensitive listeners, Anya has put together some scripts for hard conversations to help HSP’s ask to be heard and dare to be seen in their relationships.

Patricia Young, LCSW is a therapist in San Diego who is in private practice. Patricia works primarily with Highly Sensitive People (HSP) helping them understand their HSPness, and to turn their perceived shortcomings into superpowers. Patricia is passionate about providing education to help HSPs and non-HSPs understand and truly appreciate all the gifts we have to offer. Patricia provides online (telehealth) therapy to people who live in California. We meet over a private platform (similar to Skype), and you can have therapy from the privacy of your own home—when the kids are at school or are napping; from work; in your pajamas, or when you just can’t face sitting in traffic or going out.
