I wasn’t born a therapist.
In fact, this is my second career. I spent over a decade in the corporate world and in startups before realizing I was ready for my next challenge. With an office in the Financial District, many of my clients are also corporate, so I fully understand the stress and pressure of your day (and night, and 24/7) job.
I wasn’t always into sleep.
I mean sleeping, yes, but sleep as a speciality came about slowly. I noticed how many of my clients mentioned offhand that they weren’t sleeping, but never connected that to their lowered performance, bad moods, impatience, and generally feeling down.
When my wife and I had a child and immediately spent a year in severe sleep deprivation, my interest spiked hard, and I dedicated myself to learning about how sleep deprivation affects people and how to overcome insomnia without dependence on drugs, misinformation, and gadgets that don’t work.
