Mark Holman, PSY. D.
Dr. Holman is a licensed clinical and health psychologist who specializes in the treatment of insomnia. Utilizing a highly specific approach called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, his patients can expect to sleep much better or cured of insomnia in two to four weeks. The therapy works by reducing the arousal response that keeps people awake, aligning one’s routine to their circadian rhythm, strengthening the sleep drive, and conditioning the body and mind to have a sleep response produced from the bed. Dr. Holman takes a collaborative approach to tailor the treatment to meet your unique preferences and needs.
