SERVICES & REFERRAL

MY SERVICES

I provide general Sleep Medicine consultation and management for patients ages 13+ living in Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Sleep Institute (Medsleep). 

 

In addition, I also provide a modified version of cognitive-behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) for patients ages of 13 to 26.  If you are interested in a course of CBT-I, this treatment option will be discussed at the initial consultation.

A physician referral is required.  All appointments are covered by OHIP.  Referral information for physicians can be found here.  All services are currently being delivered virtually.

 

UPDATE: I will be piloting a 5-week modified CBT-I group for patients ages 18-26 on Mondays from 12pm-1:30pm, starting November 15, 2021.  Sessions will run weekly until December 13, 2021.  A consultation and assessment to determine if the group is a good fit is required prior to the start of the group.

Please remember to take a look at the Jumpstart Guides and the Find the Eight 13-episode audio series for tips and strategies to help you with your sleep now.
