Melanie Greenberg, PhD, Psychologist in Mill Valley
Stress in life and relationships challenges you to manage difficult emotions and overcome negative patterns. I provide active, compassionate, whole person therapy, inspired by mindfulness and neuroscience of emotion. I combine a warm, down to earth persona with sophisticated, cutting edge knowledge and skills. I may use Schema Therapy to help you overcome insecure attachment, avoidance, defensiveness, or self-doubt. We may process past traumas with EMDR. I use CBT and mindfulness for anxiety, depression, addictions, or health challenges. Even clients who have seen many therapists find new hope and inspiration in our work.
My specialties: (1) Building healthier relationships, (2) Managing anxiety (3) EMDR therapy for trauma (4) Cognitive-behavior therapy and stress-management skills (adults & teens) (5) Health psychology (addictions,cancer, pain, weight etc) (6) Mindfulness & self-compassion skills (7) Navigating life, parenting, & work challenges & transitions (8) Co-dependency and self-doubt
I strive to be compassionate, intuitive and relatable. I tailor therapy to your unique needs, provide hope, inspiration, and practical tools. Former Professor, PhD Psychology Program. Writer of The Mindful Self-Express Blog for Psychology Today. Author of The Stress-Proof Brain (New Harbinger) - an Amazon Bestseller in Stress-Management.
