Dr. Barwick is a Clinical Assistant Professor in Stanford's Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences who serves as Director of the Cognitive Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at the Stanford Sleep Medicine Center.
Dr. Barwick and her team offer comprehensive evaluations of sleep problems and brief, evidence-based, non-drug treatments for insomnia, hypersomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, nightmares, and Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) adjustment. Treatment, provided in individual or group formats, emphasizes a collaborative approach and uses cognitive and behavioral techniques to help people fall and stay asleep more easily, feel less sleepy or fatigued during the day, manage misaligned sleep-wake patterns, and reduce the frequency and severity of nightmares.
Dr. Barwick educates and supervises postdoctoral fellows and resident observers. She presents at regional, national and international conferences. She also collaborates in and conducts ongoing research studies at Stanford and other national and international hospitals and universities. For example, integrated protocols have been developed and are currently being tested for optimizing sleep health in students and treating sleep problems that co-occur with medical conditions such as chronic pain or POTS.
