Insomnia

Insomnia, defined as persistent problems falling and/or staying asleep, can be caused by many things, including mental health and medical conditions, stressful life events, bad sleep habits, specific substances, or even certain genetic factors. Whatever the cause, an inability to get the sleep you need can be incredibly hard to deal with. Insomnia can make you feel exhausted all day and it can also cause irritability, anxiety and problems with concentration or memory. The good news is that behavioral therapy for insomnia has been proven as an effective treatment for chronic sleep problems and is often recommended as the first line of defense. If you are having trouble with insomnia, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s qualified insomnia experts today.

I am certified in the treatment of insomnia with CBT-I, a cognitive-behavioral treatment for insomnia. Research shows that chronic insomnia is a learned behavior which can be unlearned, with most people finding relief in just six sessions. Using medication to treat chronic insomnia becomes ineffective over time because it does not treat the cause of chronic insomnia: thoughts and behaviors. You can eliminate medication, reduce sleepless nights, and increase your self-confidence.

Can you just never seem to get a good night's sleep? Do you lie down awake at night watching the clock – as the time slowly passes by? Do you wake up drowsy, with red, tired eyes from lack of deep sleep? It is so frustrating when sleep eludes you night after night. It affects not just your energy levels but also your mood, concentration, and ability to function optimally. Because of how much it impacts your life, it’s time to make a shift toward healthy restful nights.
