Dr. Dona C Zimmerman

Psychologist , PhD

(831) 621-5317
My emphasis in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program was in Health Psychology. I can help you to learn to manage chronic pain or stress. You will understand how the mind-body connection works in your life and how thinking, feeling and actions shape your life. I use biofeedback for chronic pain to help you gain control, and address anxiety and depression associated with illness or pain. You will be an active participant and I will support and guide you. My MFT intern uses art therapy in the treatment fo children and adults. We welcome your call.
I have extensive experience in psychological testing, criminal evaluations, disability evaluations, and bariatric surgery suitability evaluations. I have advanced training and experience in using CBT, DBT, EMDR and biofeedback. Alexandra Bristow, MFTi has advanced training in art therapy.
I am located in Monterey in a wheelchair accessible building, near public transportation.
