Greg Garavanian, PsyD, Psychologist in San Francisco
My area of specialty is helping people with medical conditions. Emotional support and learning non-medical techniques to address symptoms are often overlooked in traditional medical care. My goal is to help you gain a sense of control over your circumstances. Our sessions will generally consist of teaching you skills for symptom reduction as well as addressing the role of the nervous system for optimal physical and emotional health. I am also trained in EMDR and sometimes use this mind/body technique to address physiological arousal that impacts a person's ability to functional normally.
I have been the Director of Behavioral Medicine in two multi-disciplinary pain management centers. I have worked with many patients with different medical conditions. My work is often collaborative with other medical providers and family members.
