We know that the 50 minute hour or 90 minute lecture does not work for everyone. First, we will work together to define goals and discuss treatment options. Once we sketch out a plan we will continue to discuss how the interventions are going and review any changes that are needed. Change can be hard, but it is definitely achievable. We will use a variety of strategies to support and maintain positive change. Our goal is to maximize positive change and maintain any changes as efficiently and painlessly as possible.

The most important thing to remember in terms of sleep is that sleep quality is much more important than time spent asleep or sleep quantity. In fact, getting too much sleep can diminish sleep quality.  If you have poor sleep quality, you will not wake refreshed and energized, instead you may wake fuzzy and achy.  Good quality sleep is the key to feeling good, being healthy and productive.

She is able to focus rapidly on key clinical issues and place them within the overall context of the person and his/her life situation.”
