Issues I Treat


  • Insomnia External link

    I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia and Imagery Rehearsal Therapy for Nightmares. Both are evidence-based treatments that last 6-8 sessions. If you are a self-learner, I can get you started through my online classes or individual therapy sessions tailored to your sleep goals and needs.

  • PTSD External link

    My two-year residency specifically focused on PTSD and related conditions. Previously, I have worked with children, veterans, and adults with trauma in a variety of contexts. I have published research in the area of PTSD and am trained in evidence-based PTSD treatments. Learn about trauma/PTSD through my online classes or contact me to discuss individual treatment for PTSD.
