After completing my sleep medicine fellowship at Harvard, I felt there was still so much more to learn about clinical sleep medicine that I hadn’t been taught. Most doctors only get about 2 hours of sleep medicine education in medical school…and even sleep fellowships just scratch the surface of clinical sleep medicine.

So what’s the big deal anyway?

The problem is patients being misdiagnosed and put on potentially dangerous treatments.

Like my university student patient who was prescribed Ambien (zolpidem) long-term for insomnia when he actually had a circadian rhythm issue.

Or my other patient who was given benzos for years when she had undiagnosed sleep apnea the whole time.

On the flip side, doctors are tired of seeing patients with sleep issues who seem to never improve, no matter what they try.

This leads to frustrated patients & burned out doctors, polypharmacy, misdiagnoses, treatments that don’t work or are unsafe, and an increased burden of chronic disease.

With over a decade of experience practicing outpatient psychiatry and sleep medicine, I’ve found new ways to help my patients with sleep, whether they’re struggling with insomnia, hypersomnia, or issues in between.

Sleep is the foundation of health. Patients who don’t experience restorative sleep have a lower quality of life and worse health. Since there’s a global shortage of sleep specialists, I believe that every clinician needs to know how to treat sleep issues effectively.

If you’re ready to uplevel your sleep knowledge, while having fun and learning practical, integrative tools, let’s get started! Here’s to your sleep education!

Simple, Practical Tools

You’re busy seeing patients and keeping up with the demands of a busy practice…so you need simple, practical, and effective tools to help your patients sleep well without relying on potentially dangerous meds that could make things worse in the long run.

I’ve got loads of ways to help you support your patients (and maybe even yourself and your loved ones!) optimize sleep, using an integrative approach that combines the best of modern sleep medicine with evidence-based holistic practices.

Ready? Start here.
