Pain, Depression & Anxiety: Retrain Your Brain

Estimates reveal that anywhere from 11-40% of adults in the U.S. have chronic pain, which is linked to disability, opioid addiction, anxiety, depression, and increased medical costs. More specifically, chronic pelvic pain affects up to nearly a quarter of all women worldwide. 

Dr. Jana Scrivani, a clinical psychologist specializing in pelvic pain, joins us for a lively conversation today to answer the question - “What is Pain?” She discusses how pain is real and is mediated by the brain by various pathways in the nervous system. Dr. Scrivani created a behavioral health program for Pelvic Rehabilitation Medicine called Retrain Your Brain where she guides clients through virtual group sessions to understand their pain. Her goal is to empower her patients to help them change the way they act, think and approach their bodies.

Dr. Scrivani received her Psy.D. from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey’s Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. She completed an APA approved internship at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital in San Diego, where she also completed her postdoctoral training. She currently holds licenses to practice psychology in the state of New York, Florida, Virginia, DC, Maryland,and Michigan. As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Scrivani is passionately committed to helping her clients be their best possible selves by making meaningful changes in their thoughts and behaviors.
