Dr. Binggeli is a licensed psychologist who specializes in adult individual psychotherapy and is particularly skilled in the treatment of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, ADHD, and insomnia.
I have been working with individuals with insomnia, circadian phase disorders, and parasomnias since about 1985. My approach involves both traditional CBT techniques, and elements of ACT and similar "acceptance" approaches. I find that this approach can be helpful quickly, and once someone "gets it" they can weather occasional relapses fairly well. I have offices in Broomall and Ridley Park, and am affiliated with a full-service sleep center as their resident sleep psychologist. I have passed both the ABSM and BSM boards, and am familiar with a wide variety of sleep difficulties and treatments, and can readily refer to sleep physicians when appropriate. Finally, I make every effort to make my services affordable, and accept most commercial insurances and Medicare.
I am a Research Health Scientist and Core Investigator at VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System (VAPHS) in the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP) and the Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center. I am also a Staff Psychologist at VAPHS in the Primary Care-Mental Health Integration Clinic, where my clinical work focuses on treatment of behavioral sleep disorders, in particular chronic insomnia. My program of research, funded by an HSR&D Career Development Award (CDA 13-260), is focused on improving access to insomnia care through implementation science methods. This expands on my previous work regarding treatment outcomes of behavioral treatments for insomnia and epidemiology studies focused on health correlates of insomnia.
I am only able to see Veterans.
