In Stripping- My Fight to Find Me, you will hear and feel what happens when a child experiences loss and trauma.How is it that the world appeared to be the same scary place to the author in adulthood and continued to haunt her? How could she grow up to be so sound, accomplished and highly successful on the outside, yet be so fragmented and unintegrated on the inside?

Dr. Sunita Merriman 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 Merriman’s poems touched my heart. I read them and felt great compassion.

Kristin A.R. Osborn, Author of Paraverbal Communication in Psychotherapy: Beyond the Words

“Transforming, scorching and inspiring! It’s impossible not to intimately inhabit Sunita’s emotional world and hear her soul battle loss and pain as you listen to her narrate her poems. But equally raw is her triumphant voice as she fights to find her true self and her strength.”
