ABOUT GLOW SLEEP SERVICES
Sleep is natural. But that doesn't mean it comes naturally. In fact, more than 1/3 of people report having sleep difficulties. Glow Sleep Services works collaboratively with individuals and families to improve sleep, using a systems approach to identify the factors contributing to disrupted sleep. Julia works very closely with a team comprised of a neuropsychiatrist, child psychiatrist, neurologist and respirologist, which allows for further consultations and recommendations for further assessment and treatment if necessary.
Contact your healthcare benefits provider to see if you have coverage for counselling services from a registered social worker. Coverage for social work services is often provided through private extended health insurance plans, workplace benefits, or employee assistance plans.
