Depression and anxiety have a way of creating a mass amount of stress that eventually begins to seep into other areas of your life that otherwise may not have been affected. One of the major areas of the brain that can be altered when dealing with mental health issues is of course cognitive activity, most specifically your memory and ability to remain focused on tasks for extended periods of time.

Dr. Riedo is now partnering with Cogmed Working Memory Training in order to help her patients not only work on battling their depression and anxiety but by making a program available to them that will assist in increasing their abilities to remain engaged and responsive while performing tasks in their day to day lives.
