Dr. Kate Kaplan is clinical faculty at Stanford University and a practicing psychologist with offices in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, CA. She is specialized in the treatment of sleep difficulties such as insomnia, anxiety and stress, and mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder. She practice evidence-based treatments supported by scientific research. These treatments are generally brief and provide sustained relief from distress. Her approach to treatment is warm and collaborative; together she set goals and work to achieve them.
Dr. Kaplan's research interests span four (often overlapping) domains: (1) pathophysiologic aspects of insomnia and hypersomnia in mood disorders, including mechanisms, correlates, and sequelae of these sleep disturbances; (2) behavioral interventions for sleep disturbances in adults and adolescents; (3) circadian and psychosocial factors impacting sleep in adolescence; and (4) machine learning approaches to big data.
