Dr. Christina A Remek, Psy.D. – Psychologist

I’m Christina Remek, a licensed clinical psychologist and my passion is helping women and children who suffer from mental health issues. In my practice, I specialize in diagnosing and treating neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, Autism), mood disorders (postpartum depression, depression, bipolar) and anxiety disorders. I’ve helped people to utilize their strengths and overcome their challenges to live more successful and happy lives. I’ve helped parents to identify their children’s strengths and weaknesses to help them succeed academically. I’ve helped client to overcome their fears and cultivate mindfulness to be more present. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

Treatment Approach

field path

Before opening my own practice, I worked treating children and young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders in several settings where I had the opportunity to evaluate, diagnose, and treat these issues. I utilize several techniques to meet my client’s individual needs. Some of these techniques include cognitive-behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, mindfulness-based strategies, play-therapy, social skills training, parent coaching and biofeedback. I will create a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
