Sleep Treatment

Do you struggle with Insomnia?  Common symptoms include:
-Trouble falling or staying asleep      -Waking too early
-Unrefreshing sleep                               -Low energy
-Irritability                                              -Trouble concentrating
-Ongoing worries about sleep

If yes, are your sleeping medications not working or are you not interested in taking another pill?

If you answered “yes” to all of the above, then you are a candidate for a behavioral form of sleep treatment known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is an evidence-based, approved behavioral treatment for insomnia that does not require the use of pills. CBT-I aims to change sleep habits and scheduling factors as well as common misconceptions about sleep that may perpetuate insomnia.

The National Institute of Health has concluded that, “CBT-I is a safe and effective way to manage chronic insomnia and its effects.”  In 2016, the American College of Physicians published the guideline that “all adult patients receive cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) as the initial treatment for chronic insomnia disorder.”  

I have extensive background and training in this particular intervention.  Please contact me for more details about this treatment and how I can help you in achieving a better quality of sleep.
