Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I specialize in working with couples and in treating anxiety issues, including panic attacks, phobias, constant worrying, post traumatic stress (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder, and others. Treatment for anxiety-based issues is largely successful using evidence-based approaches, such as EMDR, systematic desensitization, exposure therapy, mindfulness meditation, hypnosis, and various other cognitive-behavioral techniques. With my education and/or training in all of these approaches, it is likely that I can help reduce or eliminate your anxiety-based problem. I have also helped people with a variety of other issues, including couples’ counseling, child custody mediations and divorce counseling. My work with couples is largely influenced by the work of Dr. John Gottman. I was a family therapist at the Bill Wilson Center working with runaway and severely acting out adolescents and their families in a residential reunification program. I also have experience doing therapy at a substance abuse program for adolescents and their families, at an elementary school with children and their families, and at a single parents program with adults and their children. Prior to being a therapist I obtained my engineering degree and MBA, and worked in Silicon Valley high tech for more than 10 years. Learn more about me at www.LoriGodin.com.
