Melanie Greenberg, PhD, PhD, Psychologist in Mill Valley
Are you struggling with anxiety, life or relationship stress, a role transition, or trauma? A national expert, I offer whole person therapy guided by neuroscience. Using tools from mindfulness, EMDR, cognitive-behavior therapy, or schema therapy, we develop a personalized plan. Anxiety occurs when your brain, mind, and body get stuck in a biologically wired "fight, flight, freeze" response because of stress, trauma, or relationship distress. You may worry, feel panic, be chronically resentful, or feel socially anxious. You may have avoidance that interferes with goals. You may develop addictive or angry patterns that mask underlying distress or trauma.
I will assess your situation then develop a personalized plan. We may target physical signs of stress, reprocess traumas, help you face and regulate difficult emotions, or change negative thinking. We may work to change behaviors and ways of relating to others. My approach is active, collaborative, solution-focused.
A former psychology professor, I travel nationally to train psychologists and give keynotes. My book The Stress-Proof Brain is an Amazon bestseller in Neuroscience. I've been featured in USA Today, CNN, BBC, Psychology Today. A compassionate, dedicated therapist, I seek to transform minds and relationships using innovative tools.
