About

Is anxiety or depression preventing you from living a more fulfilling life? Are you feeling overwhelmed by a major transition? Are you unable to move on from an upsetting or traumatic past experience? I help patients change patterns of behavior that are no longer working, and learn new and more effective ways of coping and engaging with life. I believe that embedded in the painful crises that usually bring individuals and couples to therapy, there are also opportunities for self understanding and mastery that can be discovered and realized in a safe healing relationship.
I work with adults struggling with a wide range of problems. I have training and experience in psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral treatment, and draw on other approaches as needed. I have specialized expertise in the treatment of posttraumatic stress and other problems related to trauma and abuse.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a published author in the field of traumatic stress. I have worked internationally and have experience treating patients from very diverse backgrounds.

Michaela Mendelsohn's Groups

Women's Trauma Group (virtual group)

This is a weekly, virtual, 16-week group beginning with several sessions of psychoeducation followed by an opportunity to identify and pursue a personal goal related to their healing from trauma while receiving support and feedback from others. Given the potential for trauma-oriented work to bring up painful feelings, this group is for women with relatively stable life circumstances, at least a few good supports and coping skills, and not actively self-harming or abusing substances.
