When you’re in pain, it’s often invisible. Your body doesn’t look the way it feels. Only you know how you feel, making it difficult for others to know what you’re going through.

I get it! Due to my personal experience with chronic pain, I first studied journalism and wrote health-related articles for a number of publications before pursuing a doctorate in clinical psychology so that I could specialize and more fully understand how the mind creates health and illness. I also learned (and continue to study) advanced healing modalities to help people quickly and effectively heal their bodies and achieve the goals they truly desire.

I do best with people who are open to trying different types of modalities, who courageously look within at the parts that aren’t always easy to accept, and who are tenacious in their desire to push forward for answers that will positively impact their health and well-being.

Are you looking for answers as to why you’re in pain? Do you desire results that will allow you to live pain-free? Schedule an appointment to find out how I can help.

  • After suffering through the worst year and a half of my life, Dr. Sterling reached out to me with a treatment that quite possibly saved my life. Before doing a session with Dr. Sterling, I had spent tens of thousands of dollars at specialized doctors, naturopathic doctors, and other healing centers. After my first session with Dr. Sterling , I began to see immediate results. As a former Athlete (long snapper for the Seattle Seahawks), I wish I had been introduced to these methods of healing during my time in the NFL. Words cannot describe the gratitude I have for Dr. Sterling and the benefits I have received from my time with her.

  • Dear Dr. Sterling, it is truly incredible what you have done for me with just one session with you. Prior to your session I would dry heave, gag and work myself into a frenzy of fear and insecurity prior to every airplane flight I took. Your care has allowed me to truly enjoy all future flights and the possibilities of exploration that each hold. With massive amounts of thankfulness.

  • Serena approaches her work with a kindness and compassion that made me feel very comfortable, and at ease. She is trustworthy and professional, and offered me guidance and support during a very difficult time in my life. I will always be grateful for her help and skill.

  • Serena is very easy to talk to and trust. I feel like my treatment with her strikes a balance of someone professionally treating me for a problem and someone who is relatable and warm – unlike traditional therapy where there can sometimes be a wall between the doctor and patient.
