My Approach to Helping

I have been passionately helping people improve their sleep for over a decade. I offer compassionate, tailored, evidenced-based treatments.

I am passionate about helping anyone improve their sleep. I am a licensed clinical health psychologist board certified in behavioral sleep medicine. I trained as a clinical fellow at the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center and built the first Sleep and Circadian Health Program for the Marine Corps Special Operations Command. I take a holistic approach to treating sleep problems by taking into account all relevant factors such as cultural background, personal history, family and friends, living arrangements, preferences, and other health and mental health conditions.
My work is based in Behavioral Sleep Medicine (BSM). This non-medication approach uses brief, evidence-based methods to treat various sleep disorders and sleep disturbances (e.g., insomnia, hypersomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, nightmares, PAP adjustment, etc) by focusing on unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that can contribute to sleep concerns.
The ultimate goal of my treatment approach is to support healthy sleep behaviors and promote thinking about sleep in a healthy and positive light. Schedule a brief, free consultation call to learn more about how this approach could work for you and your sleep goals!

Groups I Work With

    I work with patients of all ages. I believe it's never too early and never too late to work on sleep. I help expecting mothers improve sleep through pregnancy and new families navigate newborn and infant sleep to ensure all members of the family are getting quality sleep. I treat a wide array of sleep disorders including insomnia, circadian rhythm sleep disorders (jet lag, delayed sleep phase, shift work), hypersonic, PAP adjustment, etc.
