Meg Danforth

I am a licensed psychologist and certified Behavioral Sleep Medicine Specialist, practicing and teaching at Duke University Medical Center's Sleep Clinic in Durham, North Carolina.

I have a full time behavioral sleep medicine practice, specializing in providing non medication treatments for sleep disorders. Those services include: cognitive-behavior therapy for insomnia, light therapy for circadian rhythm disorders, improving patients' experiences with CPAP and assistance with discontinuing sleep medication.

As well, I am a passionate advocate for improving patient access to behavioral insomnia treatments and so I offer training opportunities at Duke and through continuing education workshops to healthcare providers throughout the U.S.  My training schedule is listed in my profile.

William F. Kerst

I am a Clinical Neuropsychologist and owner of Green Psychological Services, LLC located in Palmer, Alaska.

In the Air Force, I worked with soldiers afraid to sleep because of nightmares. That's why I helped design a (free) DoD-developed App called Dream EZ.

Now, in addition to neuropsychological assessment, our clinic also offers psychological assessment as well as individual and couples based psychotherapies on a case by case basis. The goal of psychological assessment is really the same as the goal of psychotherapy; to help you better understand yourself, your environment, and the complex interaction of you and your environment.

Neal R. Morris

I am a Child & Family and Clinical Health Psychologist, and am also board-certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine, practicing in Bethesda, Maryland. I have trained therapy dogs that can assist with therapy, as needed.

I work with adults and children helping them to deal with specific problems and symptoms as well as developing positive life goals. I am a practical, straight-forward professional who is committed to those I work with.

My goal is to identify actions that can improve your life and translate these into concrete steps to promote emotional stability and effectiveness in dealing with daily challenges.

I am a Clinical Health Psychologist working in the context of a primary care practice, Privia Medical Group, in Rockville, Maryland.

Our physical, emotional, and behavioral health are closely connected. Stress can worsen many physical conditions. Exercise is one of the best treatments for depression. Sleep, pain and sexual problems have both physical and psychological components.

Serious medical conditions can wreak havoc on your emotions and your relationships. To me, patient-centered care means treating you as a WHOLE person.
