Sandra Greenberg, Ph.D., LCSW
Part of being in relationship with others includes the inevitable challenges we face in the course of a full life. Crises, such as an affair or other relational ruptiures, often spur a call for help. Individuals and couples also come to my practice with concerns such as emotional and / or physical intimacy; problems with communication; anxiety/depression; life transitions; and loss.
People come to therapy because something is no longer working and they want help in getting out of a relational rut. They want relief and solutions to their emotional and psychological pain.
Marriage tends to be, particularly, susceptible to disruption during major life changes such as when a child is born, major loss, illness and midlife. During the middle years of life, unsettled feelings; an urge to shake things up- add some 'spice' to life can arise. Many feel a desire to re-ignite the flame, reconnect after the kids have gone; and discover how to live life more fully.
Whether coupled or single, feelings of lonelines, inadequacy or uncertainty about what's next in life can interfere with a sense of well-being. For over 20 years I've worked with individuals and couples to help clients heal old emotional wounds, learn effective approaches for solving problems, and cultivate lively, healthy and more vital relationships.
I believe in the process of therapeutic dialogue with my clients in service of increasing self-awareness, emotional healing, deeper understandings, intimacy and in promoting greater vitality. My theoretical framework is based on gestalt therapy theory, a relational approach and including a developmental approach to growth and change. My clinical approach includes a focus in the here and now within a collaborative working relationship, and with a profound respect for each person's experience.
Recent research in the field of neuroscience strongly suggests positive results of mindfulness practice on brain health and emotional well-being. Therefore, I am particulary interested in it's beneficial effects on one's experience of stress and anxiety, as well as physical health. My personal, as well as professional experience with 'mindfulness' and contemplative psychology informs my work.
Persons who choose my services tend to be individuals motivated to make positive change in their lives. In the course of therapy, clients have told me 'I like who I'm becoming;' I am feeling more loving toward my partner;' 'we couldn't have made it through this without all the skills we've learned.'
It's been my privilege to be allowed into the lives of so many people who want to live with vitality, joy, and fulfillment. As when you hire any professional it’s important that you feel respected, heard and understood. Take that first step and call me at 610.525.4988.
