Professional statement

The clients of Dr. Moravec’s psychological practice are used to being stressed–they are high performing parents, employees and supervisors. But they are facing challenging situations or transitions and the stress has finally gotten to be more than they can handle. Whether it is due to pregnancy/child birth, OCD, career change, relationship stress, trouble sleeping, or recent or past trauma, they feel anxious, overwhelmed, and less sure of themselves than usual.

Dr. Moravec is uniquely equipped to help her clients face these challenges. As a staff psychologist and supervisory program manager in the VA, she not only treated hundreds of people with anxiety, depression, and trauma, but supervised a team of treatment specialists. She also gained specialized training and experience working with women with sleep issues, trauma, and anxiety. This background enables her to pull from a variety of perspectives to flex with her clients’ needs and goals.

Clients who turn to Dr. Moravec find positive change from their very first session. Dr. Moravec takes a goal-centered approach to meet her clients needs, and collaborates with them on a treatment plan that gets them back into their lives. Using cognitive behavioral skills, she enables clients to take action steps right away to start sleeping better, coping more easily, and feeling more in control. She then uses insight-oriented and relational approaches to explore repeating relationship patterns, shift longer-term perspectives, and help clients write a better future. Clients are treatment partners and in charge of their therapy from day one, and Dr. Moravec walks with them each step of the way to celebrate their success.

Dr. Moravec can meet with clients confidentially, from the comfort of their home or office using a virtual therapy platform. Reach out to her today to start making the changes you want to see.


Message to clients

"I feel like I am failing. I can’t keep up at this pace. I lay awake at night stressing over all the things I think I should be doing. I am feeling guilty, and I’m so tired. I am always worrying that I'm not good enough, and I keep finding myself in the same situations over and over again."

Does this sound familiar? As a busy parent or professional, you’ve got a lot going on. Even though you normally do a great job at work or at home, things feel like they’ve been slipping lately. That’s where I come in.

I can help you find new ways of coping, pull from the resources you already have, and change your daily habits to feel more confident and at peace. We can improve your sleep, work on trauma, and change relationship patterns. Each session, we’ll talk about what is going on and how you can manage. You’ll leave session with a weekly goal or assignment, and we’ll track your success.

Let’s partner together to make change.
