Dr. Melamed's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Melamed "Behaviors can be provoked by stressors, chronic pain, and illness. At Behavior Medicine Associates, I focus on teaching coping skills to adults and children that can be applied to manage stress, pain, and illnesses. I also provide psychological treatment for depression, anxiety, and trauma memories. I specialize in treating these stressful problems through using a variety of behavioral modification techniques, biofeedback, imagery therapies, and hypnotherapy.Another important stressor is work-related conflicts. In my conflict resolution therapy, I use my expertise in psychology and skills in mediation to help you through the conflict resolution process. Self exploration, coping skills, and communication skills are a few of the aspects of successful conflict resolution learned here at Behavior Medicine Associates.I believe that family relationships are sacred and deserve every chance to survive. As a marriage and family therapist I work to resolve issues that make all in your Ohana feel safe and cared about even if separation occurs...you are still co-parents who love your kids. I work with soldiers and veterans to help you and your family re-integrate, especially if deployments and homesteads have been subjected to changes. If you want to know more check my website...or meet me in person. google: healthpsychologyhonolulu Mahalo for thinking about me...you will do most of the work...my belief is that I empower my clients to use their own strengths to cope with issues. So you carry home your own tools when our joint work is completed. I love to hear about your successes even when we have terminated the formal therapeutic interventions.
