Licensed and practicing as a Clinical Psychologist in Oregon since 1980, my practice specializes in the treatment of insomnia and conditions associated with sleeplessness: repetitive negative thinking (worry and rumination), anxiety, depression, perfectionism, and stress. I am one of the only psychologists in the state of Oregon that is Certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Additionally, I am the Behavioral Sleep Management Consultant for Providence Portland Sleep Disorders Clinics and an Adjunct Faculty at Oregon Health & Science University.
I am listed as a preferred provider or member of all of the major insurance panels in Portland as Miller Garrison. I use a sliding scale for persons who are uninsured.
My office is on SE 14th Ave between Burnside and Ankeny.
Hex of Insomnia Video
This video describes the factors I look at as I work understanding why a person is not sleeping well and at developing a plan of treatment to improve the quality and restorativeness of their sleep.
Upcoming Free Lecture
About once a month I offer a free lecture on insomnia. Each lecture is designed to help the person who is having difficulty initiating sleep, sustaining sleep or awakening too early. The basic biological processes related to circadian rhythms and sleep homeostat, as well as the psychological processes of arousal and associations will be presented and used to assist each participant in forming an individual plan to improve their sleep.
