Announcement icon At Light Street Psychotherapy, we are offering online and phone therapy. We will consider office sessions for emergency cases only.
"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart". Are you having trouble managing it all? Depressed? Anxious? Angry? At Light Street Psychotherapy we work with adults, adolescents and their families who suffer from trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues and anger management. Meredith's therapeutic approach helps clients learn the skills to stay centered in a stressful and fast paced world. She finds appropriate solutions to problems and enhances interpersonal relationships.
Light Street Psychotherapy treatment is individualized based on client needs. Meredith merges eastern psychotherapy approaches with traditional western psychology to create an innovative, holistic approach toward healing. www.lightstreetpsychotherapy.com
Meredith used EMDR, IFS, Yoga psychology and interpersonal therapy which helps individuals who have been sexually/physically abused, experienced grief, or witnessed domestic violence.
