Dr. Sunita Merriman has spent over two decades as a health care professional dedicated to treating her patients with the belief that the mind, body and soul are connected.
Now she writes about her deeply personal journey to unmask, understand and defeat the darkness that was the legacy of trauma and toxic stresses from adverse childhood experiences and trans-generational wounds.
She sought help and in Stripping- My fight to find Me, she shares her triumph over darkness, so others can feel empowered and inspired to do the same and live the life they were meant to.
Sunita's poetry translates the language and spirit of the human unconscious as it transforms pain and suffering into hope.
A new understanding of how trauma effects children, recognition of attachment and interpersonal neurobiology, intensive short term dynamic psychotherapy techniques and neuroplasticity brought about structural changes in Sunita’s brain that allowed her to let go of her past and embrace her future and her full potential as a human being.
Dr. Merriman lives in Edison, New Jersey with her husband and their two daughters.
