How Can Vanguard Psychiatry Help?
Consider the case of Marie, who called the office to get help with her insomnia. She explained she has a new job with different hours, 6 am until 3 pm, and she gets about 4 hours of sleep per night. She also discussed life stressors, including being newly divorced and being a single parent to kids ages 13 and 15. Marie was coping with these stressors by coming home after work and taking a nap, getting up to make dinner, and then staying online for a few hours until it was time for bed. In addition, Marie had a television in her bedroom, which she would leave on “to keep her company” at a low volume all night.
