I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialization in Health Psychology. My clinical work is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have received training in CBT for Insomnia and have provided this treatment for adults in a variety of settings. In addition to CBT-I, I also provide treatment for a range of concerns that can affect sleep, including depression, anxiety, adjustment to illness, chronic pain, weight management, and tobacco cessation.
Dr. Conroy is a clinical psychologist who treats sleep disorders in adults. Her focus is in chronic insomnia and has been working with individuals with insomnia for approximately 15 years.
I have a masters degree (MS) in clinical psychology with an emphasis on health psychology from North Dakota State University. I worked at the Mayo Clinic for 13 years in their Behavioral Medicine/Health Psychology section of the Dept of Psychiatry and Psychology. While at Mayo, Peter Hauri, PhD was my supervisor and I was therefore informally trained in CBT-I over the many years we worked together before his retirement. I have also attended CBT-I lectures over the past 20 years. I specialize in working with adults who have chronic medical conditions (pain, diabetes, seizures, stroke, gastrointestinal disorders, etc), anxiety disorders, stress and sleep (primarily insomnia) and use CBT and Motivational Interviewing approaches to treatment. I have been in private practice since 2011.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and have been practicing solely in behavioral sleep medicine for the past 2.5 years at Idaho Pulmonary Associates in Boise, Idaho. I completed specialized training in the treatment of sleep disorders, insomnia in particular, during a year long internship at the University of California, San Diego, under the supervision of Dr. Sean Drummond. Since that time, I have provided CBT-I in both group and individual settings. I love providing CBT-I as this treatment modality allows me to help patients make huge improvements in the quality of their sleep (and lives!) in very little time. I also routinely help patients taper off hypnotic medications and use principles of CBT-I and CBT in general to help patients accomplish their goals of sleeping as naturally as possible.
I am a teacher in various specialization schools for psychotherapists and I have done several training courses for psychologists where I teach CBT-I.

I am a Diplomate in Behavioral Sleep Medicine and have been providing sleep psychology services for the past eight years. I see patients across the age spectrum including young children, teens, adults and the elderly. I see patients with a wide variety of sleep concerns including insomnia, circadian rhythm disorders and behavioral insomnia in children.
My focus has been trauma-centered, recovery, and person-centered therapy, which means that I am sensitive to the difficult experiences people come to share and provide a non-judgmental, comfortable space for sharing. I have hope that individuals can thrive, recover and move beyond devastating circumstances. Through this trauma work I have encountered many cases of individuals who struggle with sleep, and currently use the CBT-I intervention. Trauma cases aren't my sole focus in the CBT-I work as I have treated people that have been referred for Insomnia with a variety of different perpetuating factors for their Insomnia.
