A Bit About Me
Hi there, my name is Dr. Stephanie Freitag Ph.D. I’m a licensed clinical psychologist and founder of New Gen Psychology PLLC.
As a millennial, I grew up during a time when parents often told their children to suppress negative emotions. Instead of making space for painful feelings, we were told to “suck it up” and “keep calm and carry on.”
However, coming from a new generation of psychologists, I believe in making space for negative emotions rather than bottling them up inside. Instead of letting sadness, jealousy, anxiety, or anger creep into our daily lives through substance abuse, eating disorders, and toxic relationships, why not just talk about these feelings to process their underlying meaning? Why not experience these emotions without judgment because they are simply another facet of the human experience?
If you are looking for a safe space to process painful feelings and experiences, I welcome you to look into New Gen Psychology. I will always be intentional about creating a warm and open environment for self-expression and value-based living. I will accept you regardless of the good and the bad because I believe in treating all humans with unconditional positive regard. Let’s make meaning out of pain and explore together.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
