Anne Malone, MSS, LSW
When you are ready to talk about the things that hold you back from a more satisfying life, I can help you get a new perspective on yourself and your relationships. As a clinical social worker, I am interested in the whole person: your health; your work; what you do for fun; how you find meaning. I will tell you my thoughts and recommendations as we get to know each other.
Therapy is a shared task: I will need your feedback. My clients have described me as warm & insightful.
I have been a psychotherapist for over 25 years and I’m also a psychoanalyst. I work with clients of all ages. When people ask about my theoretical orientation, I say that I try to do what works for each person or family. Some need a safe place to talk about their lives and challenges. Some need advice about substance abuse in themselves or in family members or about coping with aging, family conflicts or chronic illness. I treat depression, anxiety, trauma and addictions as well as their effects on families. I have experience working with clients with mental illness and also with their families. I do play therapy with children and also psychoanalysis (which is mostly play for children.) I enjoy working with people who are involved with spirituality and/or struggling to find a perspective on their upbringing. Some people find themselves on a journey of self-discovery, weaving together the threads of past and present experiences and relationships in order to live a fuller, less burdened life. These clients may come to therapy more than once a week in order to immerse themselves in the process. This is where my psychoanalytic training comes in.
