Comprehensive Sleep Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment

Forgetful? Waking up often during the night? Tired during the day?  Feel like doing things, but don't have the energy to do them?

Poor sleep quality is very often the explanation.

We spend one third of our lives asleep, and poor sleep can have substantially detrimental effects on life quality. Restful sleep allows the brain to process and store information, rehearse for important events, and is the basis for mood and creativity.

Sleep Disorders Menlo Park

At Menlo Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine we offer a comprehensive program to diagnose and treat all  sleep disorders, with testing available in your own home as needed.

INSOMNIA:

Services offered:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia - an effective and proven method to improve and maintain sleep with a minimum or no medication
  • Medication - when needed, we'll work together to find the most minimal and conservative medications to help you sleep when you need to - and we'll continue to work on  techniques to further reduce your need for medication going forward.
  • Comprehensive care - In addition to a complete evaluation of sleep issues and patterns, we always explore daytime factors that may be contributing to poor sleep. We'll explore factors such as stress, anxiety, and daily habits that may be hurting your sleep at night, and give you the tools to improve you sleep from every possible angle. With a background in both Sleep Medicine and Psychiatry, we offer a unique approach to achieving the best possible outcomes.
