Dr. Yamasaki is an expert at treating anxiety disorders, and is happy to now effectively treat insomnia. For those presenting with sleep problems, she conducts a full initial evaluation of sleep and medical history, and then provides CBT-I as a course of treatment separate from the treatment of anxiety. She often recommends that the sleep be treated first, as this helps with stability and improvement overall. Bright light is available for loan for cases in which there is indication of a strong night owl tendency.
Previous CBT-I and behavioral sleep medicine training includes seminars with Colleen Carney, Ph.D. and Michael Perlis, Ph.D. (beginner and advanced seminars), as well as several months of shadowing Julio Mendoza, Ph.D. at Penn State Health Sleep Research and Treatment Center in Hershey, PA.
