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.
