Dr. Goldstein serves as Co-Director of the behavioral sleep medicine (BSM) clinic associated with the Center for Sleep and Cognition. He also maintains a full-time clinical practice with Cambridge Psychology Group, where he serves as Director of Innovation and leads their sleep services program.

In his clinical practice, Dr. Goldstein specializes in sleep and circadian rhythms, anxiety, depression, managing chronic health conditions, work-related stress, and life-stage transitions. When helpful, he integrates mindfulness, breathing-based practices, and technology such as mobile apps and wearable devices to carefully tailor each individual’s treatment plan and boost motivation for behavior change. He previously served as Clinical Director for the BIDMC Division of Digital Psychiatry.

Dr. Goldstein also remains active with research, having published over 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters on sleep, depression, stress and resilience, EEG, heart rate variability, and mind-body interventions, with funding from the National Science Foundation, Mind and Life Institute, and Harvard’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. He continues to serve as a collaborator for clinical trial studies on sleep interventions, such as the Harvard Football Players Health Study with retired NFL players (Wanberg et al., 2022) and the MGH Survivorship Sleep Program (Hall et al., 2022), and serves as a guest editor for the Frontiers in Sleep Research Topic ‘Improving Behavioral Sleep Intervention Outcomes’.

His work has been featured in Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Prevention.com, Today.com, Oprah quarterly magazine, and other media outlets.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
