About Sleep Health Center, PLLC


Sleep Health Center, PLLC was started by Dr. Ryan Wetzler in 2018 to increase availability of sleep and health psychology services.  The specialty of behavioral sleep medicine/sleep psychology studies sleep and evaluates and treats sleep disorders.

  • It addresses behavioral, psychological and physiological factors that underlie normal and disordered sleep across the life span.
  • It develops, tests and applies evidenceā€based psychological approaches to the prevention and treatment of sleep disorders and related conditions.

Sleep psychology has evolved from a unique merger of psychological science and practice, with sleep science and practice.

Health psychology is a specialty area that focuses on how biology, psychology, behavior, and social factors influence health and illness. Other terms including medical psychology and behavioral medicine are sometimes used interchangeably with the term health psychology.  Health psychologists apply psychological principles to the management of chronic health conditions.

The fields of sleep and health psychology are relatively new and boarded specialists are rare.  Dr. Wetzler is the only board certified behavioral sleep specialist and is one of only 4 boarded clinical health psychologists in the state of Kentucky.  Sleep Health Center is committed to providing scientifically proven treatment approaches with a goal of optimally managing health problems with use of as little medication as possible.  If you are already taking medication for your condition we will work with you and your prescriber to determine if you could benefit from a reduction or discontinuation of your medication.
