Details

I am a psychologist and certified behavioral sleep medicine (BSM) specialist and diplomate practicing in Glover Park in Washington, DC at DC Psychology and Sleep Services.

I received training in BSM at Johns Hopkins and have worked on interdisciplinary sleep medicine teams.  I continue to regularly conduct CBT-I and lead workshops teaching other health professional about CBT-I.  I assess for the full spectrum of sleep disorders and provide guidance for what other work-up or treatment may be needed.

In addition to treating insomnia, I provide supportive psychotherapy and conduct CBT for generalized anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, and depression in adults, including college students.  I also provide treatment for those dealing with relationship or adjustment issues.  I strive to adopt a collaborative coaching style that help my patients achieve their goals.
