Aida Pigott
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, CADC, BCD

Specializing in Grief, Anxiety and Addiction.
I believe, while there is no cure from grief, there is healing. Therefore, an empathic support as we journey into the darkness and unfamiliarity of grief is essential. I invite you into a space where grief does not have an expiration date and where there are as many ways to grieve as there are grievers.

Myth: Psychological Tests Take an X-ray of Your Unconscious Mind
What testing actually tell us, why it’s valuable, and why it isn’t mind reading.

We live in an age of not just X-rays, but CT scans, PET scans and MRIs.  We’re able to see the human brain with greater clarity than ever before, and we’ve come to view these techniques as standard medical practice.  In contrast, the notion that someone could…

Social Anxiety
“I reject people before they have a chance to reject me!”
