Melanie Greenberg, PhD, Psychologist in Mill Valley
Relationship stress, life transition, or trauma can knock you off balance, creating emotional pain. Old ways of coping no longer work and you seek new tools. A former psychology professor and author, I provide active, compassionate, whole person therapy. My unique approach is inspired by mindfulness & neuroscience of emotion & attachment. I help you face difficult emotions, express yourself authentically, & be present & proactive. We focus on facing difficult emotions and dialogues with (self-) compassion, courage, and confidence. Even clients who have seen many different therapists find new hope, perspectives, and tools in our work.
My specialties include: (1) Building healthier relationships, (2) Managing anxiety (3) Healing traumas and insecure attachment patterns (4) Cognitive-behavior therapy and stress-management skills (5) Health psychology (addictions, insomnia, cancer, pain, weight etc) (6) Mindfulness and self-compassion skills (7) Navigating life, parenting, & work challenges & transitions
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.
