Have you experienced trauma of any sort? A counselor may be able to help you move past it. I am a counselor in Walnut Creek, CA offering trauma counseling to patients in need.
Getting Help and Moving Forward
Following a life-altering event, you may need trauma counseling if you find yourself:
Avoiding any potentially stressful situation
Avoiding people and places that remind you of the trauma
Panicking in social situations you cannot escape
Hiding your feelings of anxiety and fear
Withdrawing from relationships with loved ones
Struggling to fall asleep
Reliving the trauma in dreams and flashbacks
Suffering in your performance at work
Drinking or abusing drugs to mask your problems
Avoiding plans for the future
Thinking about suicide
Feeling like you’re facing everything alone

Dr. Gabriele Goodman
I am a psychologist for sport, health, and life. I have spent 15 years studying, writing, teaching, and coaching people on how to perform at their best. I have worked with world-class performers from the arenas of sports, business, healthcare, and the United States Army. I have special expertise in Performance Psychology and train clients on how to strengthen the mental and emotional skills that underlie human performance and sustainable resilience.
Dr. Goodman came as a guest speaker for our teenage dancers to talk to them about anxiety and performance anxiety. Our objective was to open a conversation with our students about something so many teens today struggle with. Her presentation style was casual and comfortable, and they were engaged and asked great questions. Dr. Goodman was clearly an expert in this topic, and provided information and resources that will be invaluable for those who participated. We sincerely look forward to a relationship with her in the future, and greatly appreciate her sharing her expertise and time with us.

Dr. Goodman has been a God send, I am a chronic pain sufferer,, I also suffer from anxiety and depression as a result of multiple surgeries from on the job injuries. Her knowledge, skill set and compassion for her patients is impeccable, she is absolutely amazing and she cares, I'm not just a number. Dr. Goodman has helped me manage my pain symptoms mentally through therapy, using multiple therapeutic techniques. She is my peace beneath the storm that I weather on a daily basis. She has thought me to fight everyday to live with pain and to enjoy the life that I have been given although I will never be pain free. I feel completely safe with her, and I look forward to seeing her for every session. I dont know who or where I'd be without her in my life.

Dr. Goodman is truly an amazing woman who is a master at her craft. I started seeing her almost 2 years ago and starting therapy with her was one of the best things I’ve done. Not only have I noticed a change in myself, but my closet friends have commented on the positive change Gabby has had on me. She has helped me navigate my mid 20’s whether it be friendships, romantic relationships, my family dynamics or even my career moves. She holds me accountable and is an amazing sounding board for tough conversations and figuring out next steps that I’ve struggled asking for help with. She’s challenges me, she’s holds no judgement and I feel safe turning to her with everything. She has given me permission to grow in ways I didn’t know I needed. Thanks Gabby :)
