Therapy Sessions
Are you fed up with your anxiety?

You're exhausted and overwhelmed.

Your life looks good from the outside, but inside you're on edge.

 

Your mind is spinning about everything you need to accomplish or about events that may happen in the future. You're always worrying.

Your body feels constricted all the time. Your chest feels tight, your jaw is tense, or your shoulders and neck are always in pain.

You find yourself impatient and angry with the people you love the most.

You have persistent thoughts that bully you, tell you you're not good enough, and you can't get relief from this mental chatter.

There is a way out of suffering.

 

You can feel calm, content, connected to those around you, and excited about life again. 

You can make decisions more easily and feel confident.

You can put yourself first without feeling guilty or selfish.

You can feel more carefree and enjoy life.

I strive to utilize the best research evidence to address your unique and specific needs. I draw upon Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), meditation practices, Internal Family Systems (IFS), as well as somatic techniques to address the connection between the body and mind. 

Hi, I'm Dr. Goldyne.

I'm a licensed clinical psychologist in California (PSY28343) and a long-time Santa Barbara resident. I see clients in-person and via telehealth from my office on the Mesa. I have trained since 2005 at several local agencies, non-profits, a university counseling center, and in the private practice setting. Since 2016, I've been licensed and practicing independently. I have specialties in parent-infant mental health, child development, and the college/university population.

How to get help:

I offer a complimentary 15-minute initial phone consultation to determine if we might be a good fit to work together. You can complete the form below, email me at dara@drgoldyne.com, or call (805) 699-6382.

A welcoming waiting room designed to mirror the Mesa's coastal charm, inviting clients to relax as they await their session.
