Hello! I am a Canadian living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia, my Masters and PhD in clinical psychology at The University of Oregon, and my clinical internship in child psychiatry at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. I taught at Syracuse University for two years, prior to moving to Tulsa in 2009. I am on the faculty at The University of Tulsa, and have a small, part time private practice.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I specialize in trauma and resilience, with special emphasis on athletes, sleep, and nightmares. I have been doing CBT-I for about 8 years and work with children as young as 5 as well as with adults. When working with children ages 5-14, it is expected that a primary caregiver will participate in treatment with the child/adolescent.
Something unique about my work, is that I have a treatment for nightmares in children. The treatment is Cognitive behavioral therapy for nightmares specifically, although I do treat insomnia and other behavioral sleep problems. I have done research in the area of sleep since about 2010, and my research has been cited by the International Olympic Committee. You can learn more about my research on my TU website.
I have a masters degree (MS) in clinical psychology with an emphasis on health psychology from North Dakota State University. I worked at the Mayo Clinic for 13 years in their Behavioral Medicine/Health Psychology section of the Dept of Psychiatry and Psychology. While at Mayo, Peter Hauri, PhD was my supervisor and I was therefore informally trained in CBT-I over the many years we worked together before his retirement. I have also attended CBT-I lectures over the past 20 years. I specialize in working with adults who have chronic medical conditions (pain, diabetes, seizures, stroke, gastrointestinal disorders, etc), anxiety disorders, stress and sleep (primarily insomnia) and use CBT and Motivational Interviewing approaches to treatment. I have been in private practice since 2011.

Dr. Dardeen is a licensed clinical psychologist, currently residing in Indiana. Dr. Dardeen has been certified in CBT-I since 2012. She participated in CBT-I training and was certified through the VA Healthcare System in the early years of her career. Since that time, Dr. Dardeen has partnered with the sleep disorders clinic at Intermountain Medical Center (2015-2017) to provide care to a variety of patients with various sleep disorders. She now has her own private practice, Suncrest Psychological Services LLC, and a large portion of her practice is devoted to treating sleep disorders. Dr. Dardeen's practice specializes in treating first responders and she provides many EBT's (evidence based treatments) such as CBT-I, CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) and EMDR (Eye movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). CBT-I is a great fit for law enforcement, EMS, and firefighters who often work irregular hours leading to sleep disruption. First responders tend to react well to the structure of CBT-I and the quick and stable results it brings.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and have been practicing solely in behavioral sleep medicine for the past 2.5 years at Idaho Pulmonary Associates in Boise, Idaho. I completed specialized training in the treatment of sleep disorders, insomnia in particular, during a year long internship at the University of California, San Diego, under the supervision of Dr. Sean Drummond. Since that time, I have provided CBT-I in both group and individual settings. I love providing CBT-I as this treatment modality allows me to help patients make huge improvements in the quality of their sleep (and lives!) in very little time. I also routinely help patients taper off hypnotic medications and use principles of CBT-I and CBT in general to help patients accomplish their goals of sleeping as naturally as possible.
I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in Behavioral Sleep Medicine. I know how overwhelming sleep problems can be and the huge effects they can have on daytime life. Let me tell you though: there is hope. It has been my continued privilege to help people improve their sleep, rebuild their confidence, and retake their lives from sleep problems. It would be my privilege have the opportunity to help you as well.
I am a licensed psychologist who has been in private practice for over 15 years. I work with individuals and couples dealing with a variety of psychological and health concerns. For the past 7 years I have been using CBT-I in my practice and have found it to be an incredibly effective technique for treating insomnia.
I am a teacher in various specialization schools for psychotherapists and I have done several training courses for psychologists where I teach CBT-I.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 15 years of experience providing evidence-based treatment for mood-related disorders including anxiety and depression. I have also had specialized training and experience in treating insomnia through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia. In my practice, in addition to a focus on changing behaviors that interfere with sleep, I pay special attention to identifying and targeting the problematic emotions and worry thoughts that play such a large role in the perpetuation of insomnia. When called for, I teach skills to help clients tolerate the distress that often accompanies poor sleep and the challenges that behavior change can create. Furthermore, mindfulness strategies play a central role in my treatment approach.
In addition to the description of my experience and approach as noted above, I have been intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. In addition to CBT-I, I provide comprehensive DBT, including leading skills groups for adults and families.

I'm a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in treating insomnia and anxiety. I provide personalized CBT-I to individual adults. In addition to helping clients fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and improve sleep quality, a significant outcome of our work has been helping clients feel confident in their ability to sleep well again and to trust their natural sleep systems. I also help clients referred to me by their primary care physicians who want to stop being dependent on sleep medications. It's always a thrill to help New Yorkers sleep better!
My focus has been trauma-centered, recovery, and person-centered therapy, which means that I am sensitive to the difficult experiences people come to share and provide a non-judgmental, comfortable space for sharing. I have hope that individuals can thrive, recover and move beyond devastating circumstances. Through this trauma work I have encountered many cases of individuals who struggle with sleep, and currently use the CBT-I intervention. Trauma cases aren't my sole focus in the CBT-I work as I have treated people that have been referred for Insomnia with a variety of different perpetuating factors for their Insomnia.
