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.

— Kasryn Kapp, Licensed Professional Counselor in , PA

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia is effective and short-term, typically taking 6-8 sessions. Insomnia usually results from developing bad sleeping habits over a period of time for one reason or another. One bad habit is not that big of a deal, but when a lot of bad habits get thrown into the same bed for a period of time, no one gets any sleep and being tired becomes the norm! While we are working together to improve your sleep you’ll keep a daily sleep diary (very easy and quick to fill out) that I’ll review at every session. This information will help us find your stuck points throughout the treatment and allow us to see your progress.
