Patient Discussing Depression

Bipolar Disorder

During my internship, I worked with patients who suffered  from different types of bipolar disorder. While working with them, I developed a great interest in this disorder as it is a difficult condition to manage or treat. This causes many specialists to experience frustration while trying to help the individuals who are diagnosed with this condition. This motivated me to write my doctoral dissertation research on  variation of Bipolar disorder.

Sleep Disorders

I also worked in a sleep disorder center at a management level for 25 plus years. There, I  was a day-to-day specialist for patient management and learned quite a bit in this area of study. This became a specialty as I loved the many ways to improve sleep for someone, without medications and by receiving informal training under one of most knowledgeable sleep doctors /specialists in Los Angels .

Depression

Some of the areas in which I worked included patients with Major depressive and anxiety disorders. I  believe that depression and a anxiety systems we all face, but for some it escalated to an illness. I worked with many individuals to reduce or eliminate depression and anxiety to  a manageable level.
