More About Teena Garcia

I take a client-centered approach and I believe every person has the answers within themselves. I will work with you, together as a team, to help you connect with your inner wisdom. The main modalities I may use to help you get there include: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Ego State Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

My areas of specialty include: trauma and attachment (including various states of dissociation), anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, and bipolar disorder. I also work with perfectionism, dealing with your “inner critic” and feelings of shame and blame.

I deal with individual issues in the context of relationships such as; separation and divorce, family conflict, anger management, and financial distress.
