Get to know Kristin

I wanted to do this podcast because, first and foremost, I am personally addicted to podcasts. I feel that there is a shortage of female voices in the podcast landscape, yet most of the people I know who are hooked on podcasts are women. My hope is that we will be a resource for ladies like us.

 


You are imperfect, you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.

A brief history

Dr. Kristin Daley received her doctorate in health psychology from UNCC. Her primary passion is working to support the World Health Organization’s definition of health: emotional, physical and social health, through several cognitive behavioral therapeutic approaches including ACT therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). She started her career working in sleep medicine, and has worked in sleep medicine while completing her masters and her doctorate. She is one of approximately 200 psychologists who have completed certification in behavioral sleep medicine, and is trained to work with sleep disorders across the age spectrum. Areas of particular passion include: sleep disorders (cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia- CBT-I, medication tapers, behavioral interventions for pediatric sleep disorders), chronic or severe health conditions (e.g. chronic tinnitus, fibromyalgia, heart disease, cancer, neurological conditions), and psychological conditions that have strong behavioral or physical symptomology, such as anxiety, panic disorder, borderline personality disorder and depression. In her personal life, she is raising three rowdy kids and loves to run as much as she can.
