Treatment Approach – The H.E.L.P. Method

Dr. Scott recognizes the emotional, mental and physical toll that poor sleep takes on our lives. She has dedicated her career to helping patients gain a sense of mastery and control over their sleep and health in a manner that is unique to each individual. In keeping with this purpose, she developed the H.E.L.P method, a comprehensive treatment approach created to identify and address the multifactorial influences over sleep, health and well-being.

While patients may have similar challenges and goals, each patient differs in their genetics, personality traits, physiology, lifestyle, diet and satisfaction with relationships, careers and place in life. These are just some of the factors that can influence sleep and energy. Rather than treating symptoms, the H.E.L.P. method provides a roadmap that enables Dr. Scott to identify the cause(s) of your concerns and guide you toward long-lasting relief and health. The success of her approach has identified her as an authority in helping patients with complex and challenging sleep issues and with those patients who continue to struggle or are dissatisfied with previous treatment attempts. If you need H.E.L.P., you can contact her office for more information or to set up an appointment.
