Sandra Parker, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and author of Embracing Unrest: Harness Vulnerability to Tame Anxiety and Spark Growth. Over the past 30 years, Sandra has helped people recognize and soothe unrest to resolve anxiety, depression, and loss of intimacy. Her practice integrates ideas from developmental psychology, neurobiology, psychodynamic therapy, experiential processes, and mindfulness practices.
In addition to loving her work, she spends joyful time with her hands in the earth gardening, hiking in the woods, and bicycling around the city, and can (not often enough) be found curled up on a sofa with a stiff cup of tea and a good book.
She earned her doctoral degree at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, and is a member of the BC Psychological Association, Canadian Psychological Association, and Canadian Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology.
Sandra lives by the ocean in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband and three feisty little dogs, who teach her daily about risking feeling everything. Learn more at EmbracingUnrest.com.
