Sleep difficulties, anxiety, and depression can all be exhausting and make life feel overwhelming. The good news is that they are all very treatable. With the correct approach, it is usually possible to make significant progress in a short period of time. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and depression, as well as related difficulties (including panic attacks, obsessive and compulsive behavior, eating disorders, generalized anxiety, phobias, PTSD, and others). I have a particular specialty in the treatment of insomnia and other sleep related disorders. I take a strengths-based, positive psychology approach to cognitive behavioral therapy with a focus both on relieving distress and improving overall well-being. I am a tenured professor at Wagner College, where my research and teaching focuses on sleep, irrational beliefs, and positive psychology.
