Dr. Deena Muno, Psy.D. Clinical Psychologist (PSY33531)
Birth, death, love, and heartbreak. These core experiences are inevitable to all humans, and yet, we are always surprised by how profoundly they shape our lives as individuals. As a clinical psychologist, I understand just how deeply we struggle to make sense of these transitions and the great lengths we will go to avoid the feelings involved. I’ve had the privilege of helping people work through the depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, anger, and interpersonal conflict that often result from this avoidance and create a deeper sense of self-compassion for the human condition. I have experience working with people of all ages, shapes, colors, and sizes, and specialized training working with young adults (18-30) and people struggling with eating disorders. I look forward to creating a warm and safe space for us to foster your healing and growth.
