Michelle Eisenberg, PhD


About me

I use evidence-based treatments to help people recover from post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and depression. My goal as a therapist is to work collaboratively with you to understand the obstacles that are preventing you from living the life you want. We will work together to develop a treatment plan that makes sense for you as an individual. Then we will focus on finding new behaviors and ways of thinking that will help you achieve your goals. Expect to be active in your treatment and to practice the skills you will learn both during sessions and at home.

Dr. Eisenberg received her Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis in Clinical and Cognitive Psychology, where she received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and the Olin Fellowship. She specialized in trauma treatment and research throughout her graduate training, clinical internship at the VA Maryland Healthcare System, and postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and the Palo Alto VA. Throughout her research and clinical work, Dr. Eisenberg has focused on how Post-Traumatic Stress impacts the way people understand information and the world around them. She is trained in multiple treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Her primary goal is to help her clients gain the skills they need to be more successful in their personal and professional life.
