Her work focuses on psychogeriatrics and psychotherapy. As part of her work, she offers an 8 week MBSR group training for elderly caregivers who have partners with dementia.
During the Corona Virus Pandemic she was called upon to co-lead a support group for the psychiatry residents who are frontline workers in Department of Psychiatry.
Anne has trained at the Centre for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts with John Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli. She also has lived experience in dealing with grief.
No one escapes loss, and losses are many in this Pandemic. Anne believes that in facing into grief and the work of mourning we grow in wisdom and humanity, and make space to embrace joy and new beginnings in our lives.
