The combination of stress and isolation during the past year-and-a-half create the perfect storm for experiencing anxiety and worry. This webinar will provide an overview of recent neuroscience advances that inform about the anxious brain and the resilient brain. The presentation will discuss brain-based strategies for coping with anxious rumination and calming the body.

She is also trained in various other trauma treatment modalities including EMDR, somatic processing, attachment intervention, NMT (neurosequential model of therapeutics), and TF-CBT. Dr. De Coteau has extensive experience working with patients who suffer from complex trauma, neurodevelopmental disorders, grief, anxiety, depression, and suicidal thinking.

Dr. DeCoteau was appointed by a member of the U.S. congress to serve on the Commission on Native Children to help address the challenges faced by Native children.
