Pat Vroom Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist in NY and NJ. Her mindfulness-based practice is dedicated to helping individuals and groups to access their own inner strengths for growth and healing. She particularly enjoys teaching mindfulness groups because they are so effective in empowering participants to reclaim their lives.

She is trained in Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Ericksonian Hypnosis, Mindfulness Meditation, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression. She sees mindfulness as a powerful tool to manage stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other symptoms of illness, to facilitate positive behavior change, reduce pain, and improve coping. She currently teaches MBSR and MBCT in the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and NYC areas.

Dr. Vroom has extensive experience in hospital-based treatment support for serious illness. At Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in NYC, she established and led the Mind-Body Program within the Integrative Medicine Service for over 7 years, including clinical and research programs to support cancer patients, caregivers, pediatric, and high-risk populations. Subsequently, she was the founding Director of Integral Medicine at Capital Health Medical Center, a large community-based hospital in the Princeton-Hopewell NJ area.

In 2009 following a long-time interest, she initiated mindfulness groups within the homeless community, where she leads MBSR at the Rescue Mission of Trenton, integrating the important research of Alan Marlatt, PhD on addiction and mindfulness.

Prior to becoming a psychologist, Pat spent over 20 years in the corporate world as a computer scientist and R&D manager. She earned her doctoral degree in psychology at Columbia University Teachers College. She has had a meditation practice for over 15 years.
