Dr. Gregory Nevens
Dr. Nevens is a health psychologist with long term experience in integrated and integrative health care. He has spent most of his career embedded within and working conjointly with family practices and some specialty medical practices. Specialties are chronic pain and other chronic medical conditions. His work is based on the neuroscience regarding the etiology, maintenance, and exacerbation of these conditions and influences of emotions and histories of emotional trauma. He has researched, developed, and utilized brief intervention systems, which can directly impact areas of the brain involved in certain chronic conditions as evidenced in the neuroscience and has an extensive history of related national presentations and workshops.
Dr. Nevens is also a CAM practitioner, a member of the Board of Executives of the American Association of Integrative Medicine, and has contributed to the national certification exam and study course. His explorations have led to the conviction that specific energetic therapeutic modalities, complimentary to Western emphasis on mass, bridge the mind-body Cartesian split attending to both emotions and soma. Through ancient intervention systems in conjunction with modern technology, the core emotionally traumatic foundations of multiple chronic conditions can be impacted along with more traditional symptom reduction protocols. Dr. Nevens has developed other issue specific protocols for PTSD, anxiety, panic, and other emotional states using color electroacupuncture, which are proving highly effective. He is also an adjunct assistant professor the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine and is involved in Integrative Family Medicine Fellowship at Maine Medical Center.
