PTSD Therapist in San Diego, CA

Welcome to Dr. Eileen Callahan, Ph.D..

Thank you for visiting the website of Dr. Eileen Callahan, Ph.D..  This may be the first step you take toward improved happiness and health. 

I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience.  I have a private practice in Coronado, CA near down town San Diego.  Although I specialize in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, I also work with children, adolescents and adults who are struggling with a variety of issues..  These issues range from common life changes or stressors to more serious disorders or diagnoses. Anxiety disorders, depression, and ADHD are common problems that I work with.

If you're here to learn more about therapy before scheduling your first visit, please browse our educational Therapy Topics and our New Patient Center to learn more about what to expect from therapy.

My Treatment Philosophy

I believe we can all benefit from learning more about ourselves and from having the unbiased support of another person.  The more insight we have into ourselves, our behavior, and emotions, the more choices we have and the more power we have to make changes in our lives.  I enjoy helping people make these changes and watching them gain a greater sense of happiness and inner peace as a result.

I primarily use cognitive/behavioral techniques to help foster these changes.  This means that I help people change the way they think about themselves and the world so that their thoughts are more positive and reality-based.  This, in turn, leads to more positive feelings and less anxiety and depression. I also incorporate mindfulness into my therapy to help my patients become more self aware, present, accepting, and compassionate.

I have gone through extensive training in techniques that have been proven through research to help people suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder.  These modalities include Prolonged Exposure, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.  I have utilized these techniques to help people cope with all types of trauma including combat trauma, sexual assault, medical traumas, and motor vehicle accidents.

Please take some time to further browse my website.  I hope that it will answer any questions you may have.  I also hope that it leads you to take another step toward improved well-being by contacting me.
