Most recently, Dr. Wolkin has culminated her experiences and expertise in a site titled BrainCurves: Mind-Body-Brain Wellness for All of You. It’s a space for all women and all of our supporters to inspire accurate and accessible wellness ideas as we journey together towards a more holistic, healthy, and happy life. As a clinical health and neuropsychologist, she has worked with many suffering from trauma and PTSD on a daily basis.

All of Dr. Wolkin’s training and time spent as the psychologist at a specialty center for women’s health, has given her a keen perspective to the different biological, psychological, and social factors impacting upon our minds and our bodies. She has seen firsthand the kind of stigmas that still exist today in our society with regards to women’s wellness. Creating awareness around the fact that both men and women need specialized care and guidance is crucial. Wellness is hands down, always fostered most efficiently and effectively when it is tailored to each of us and all aspects of us.
