EXECUTIVE WELLNESS &
EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP CONSULTING

Dr. Corá helps people as a whole person and across dimensions: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual. Did you know?

In addition to this combination, Dr. Corá is one of a handful of psychiatrists who also offers effective lifestyle strategies to help people optimize their performance, productivity, quality of life, and overall sense of well-being. She provides plenty of tips and strategies to avoid burnout and improve wellness in her book: ExecutiveHealth.com's Leading Under Pressure®: Strategies to Avoid Burnout, Increase Energy, and Improve Your Well-Being(Career Press, 2010.) She donates 100% of book royalties to Save the Children.

The Wall Street Journal


The strategies and information presented in Leading Under Pressure® have become a leading source for media outlets, such as The Wall Street Journal article, "When the CEO Burns Out." The recent article quoted Dr. Corá as an expert on the topic and included a quiz from Leading Under Pressure®, designed to help leaders determine if they're at a risk of burning out at work.


TESTIMONIAL: "Ode to Gaby"

"As a busy, compressed, overburdened, stressed executive, I was in need of finding new pathways under which to live. As we all know, this quest is quite difficult and frankly, a lot of times unattainable. For what one needs, is to have a "co-pilot" to help him navigate the tricky waters and byways of one's life and this is what Gaby brought to me. Gaby is a "co-pilot" for the rejuvenation of one's life and to a pathway for healthy living. She brings a multitude of talents and professionalism to her efforts as well as insightful shrewdness of understanding the course needed to be taken by you. She is a true student of her profession and in her beliefs, as she is always on the "cutting edge" in her thinking. I could not give her a more hearty endorsement."

Anonymous - Dr. Gaby has been his "co-pilot" for ten years (she maintains 100% confidentiality with her patients)

TESTIMONIAL:

"I have known Dr. Cora for approximately six years. During that time,I have been under her care for therapy and medication management. I was referred to Dr. Cora by my psychologist. I had been to several psychiatrists for symptoms of a long standing depression, OCD, and mood swings. I am very sensitive to medications, and develop side effects within a short time. I have had to change medications many times. My symptoms were not improving and I fell into deep depression. At the same time my OCD and anxiety symptoms started to increase. The last psychiatrist that I had seen told me that there were no new medications to take, and said, "That's just as good as it's going to get for you." I refused to believe that statement. That's when my psychologist referred me to Dr. Cora.

I came to see Dr. Cora in a state of deep depression, and without much hope of getting better. Dr. Cora listened to my symptoms and was willing to try a combination of medicines that I had never taken. Dr. Cora gave me hope that it was possible to get better. I started seeing Dr. Cora for therapy and medication management. She knew the pharmacology of the medications and prescribed the lowest effective doses. Within a short period of time I started feeling better, and was on a maintenance dose of medications. Dr. Cora also exposed me to alternative forms of therapy. She recommended mindfulness practice, meditation, good nutrition, and a daily regimen of exercise. Following her prescription of these forms of therapy as well as medication has brought stability and happiness in my life.

Dr. Cora has been empathic during the low times of my life. Her positivity and professionalism have always been present in every session. She has made herself available for therapy sessions when I needed immediate care. Dr. Cora has also made herself available for therapy sessions, via phone calls and Skype.

I have been fortunate to have found a doctor and therapist like Dr. Cora. She has helped me make beneficial life changes, which have brought me happiness. I respect Dr. Cora, and owe her a debt of gratitude for my wellbeing."

EXECUTIVE TELEHEALTH

Are you a successful executive on the go most of the time and still you still need a session with your trusted physician to keep your sanity? Dr. Corá works with busy leaders who want to continue their care with their doctor while traveling the world. She has used TeleHealth or TeleMedicine for many years as many of her patients--or clients in her executive leadership coaching practice--travel often or even live abroad at times. As a physician and surgeon, Dr. Corá is licensed in the State of Florida--and soon to be licensed in her native State of New York. While there are medical practice restrictions per state, inquire with her about executive leadership coaching if you need more of the coaching rather than the psychotherapy or medication follow-ups.

Dr. Corá suggests an initial face-to-face visit (nothing beats the face-to-face!) with follow-up visits via Skype, FaceTime or Hipaa-compliant technology. Call 305-762-7632 to make an appointment or contact us by clicking here.

WELLNESS

Think Clear, Feel Well and Look Great

Years ago, one of my patients asked me if I would inject Botox to even out the look of his forehead and get rid of frown lines. We laughed at the thought of doing this at my practice and he insisted: "I'd feel so comfortable having the procedure with you in your office: it's private, confidential, and I'd love to have it done!"

Instead, other patients had multiple plastic surgeries and came back to see me wondering why they weren't feeling any better from their chronic anxiety or depression. The difference may not be in the looks but in the science behind it.

Fast-forward, I was excited with the recent news: dermatologist Eric Finzi, MD, PhD, teamed up with psychiatrist Norman Rosenthal, MD, who described Seasonal Affective Disorder and developed light therapy as treatment for this condition to find that there may be some direct feedback between the facial frown muscles and the depression center of the brain. Hypothetically, if you can prevent the negative signals from happening when someone frowns the brain may interpret this as meaning that things are better. The results of the largest study "Treatment of depression with onabotulinumtoxinA: A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial" was published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, Volume 52 (May 2014). The researchers found that 52% of subjects suffering from moderate to severe depression showed relief from depression after injection of Botox to the glabellar area between the eyes, compared with only 15% of those who received the saline placebo.

Coming soon: we're adding Botox injections to the glabellar area between the eyes for men and women suffering from depression.

HYPNOSIS: RELAXATION & REGRESSION THERAPY

Are you experiencing trouble relaxing and finding your center? Do you feel stuck in past experiences that hold you back from manifesting your higher self? Join us in our RELAXATION & REGRESSION groups for a lifetime experience.

Dr. Corá first trained in hypnosis in the eighties. Her mentors have been doctors Bill Daniels (hypnosis technique and progressive relaxation) and Brian Weiss (relaxation and past-life regression therapy). Through the years and with experience she has developed her own style in integrating the Healing Arts. Dr. Corá conducts initial visits the same way she would for an individual consultation. During this time, we will discuss your need for a consultation as well as physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual experiences that may both be helping you or contributing to your challenges. This process will help us better understand you as a person and design a working plan that will hopefully assist you in your recovery and wellbeing. By the end of this evaluation process, we will discuss potential interventions to assist you, which may include one or a combination of:

  • Psychotherapy (including hypnosis, coaching, and cognitive-behavioral strategies),

  • Psychopharmacology (medication therapy), and

  • Healthy Lifestyle Strategies (including The Four Pillars of Biological Health: nutrition, sleep, exercise, and relaxation strategies).

If regression therapy is suggested, we may perform an initial relaxation exercise so that you can start practicing at home prior to the regression session. The initial evaluation and the relaxation exercise may take around two hours. In general, if regression therapy is appropriate, Dr. Corá usually suggests a series of two sessions of two hours each. These sessions may be scheduled within a week (particularly if traveling from abroad) or on a weekly basis.
