When working with clients with a history of trauma, Dr. Koren helps them get on the path of healing. He takes a trauma-informed approach and gently guides them as they open up about their experiences while also being sensitive to how they are feeling in the present moment. He wants them to feel heard and understood before suggesting changes and/or coping strategies. His goal is to help them process the trauma, regain confidence in the mind-body connection, and feel empowered.
Dr. Koren also utilizes a number of other treatment approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Existential Therapy, Psychoanalytic Therapy, mindfulness practices, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). He not only helps his clients gain a better understanding of themselves but also gives them different tools to help manage their emotions and symptoms.
