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.

Has your bed become the enemy? Is it hard to fall asleep because of all the thoughts racing through your head when you lie down? CBT-I therapy for insomnia is a highly effective and short-term treatment (5-8 sessions on average) for insomnia. It can help you sleep again even if you've struggled with insomnia for 50 years. I love this therapy because it's so quick and effective that my people can't believe their results. I can also help you put an end to nightmares in 2-3 sessions.

I noticed that so many of my anxious and perfectionistic clients struggle with sleep, so I got myself a certification in CBT-I (cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia). CBT-I is a medication-free, behavioral approach to improving sleep problems.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a heavily researched, short-term treatment that is just as effective as sleep medications in the short run and, in the long run, MORE effective - clients continue to experience benefit long after treatment concludes. Treatment addresses the thoughts and the behaviors that interfere with sleep, teaching clients the skills they need to get better quality sleep and get more of it. CBT-I clients work closely with a therapist to develop and refine a plan designed to specifically address their unique sleep problems Education about the biological and psychological processes that regulate sleep is an essential part of the treatment. I have worked with clients who suffered from insomnia for twenty years or more and are now sleeping six or more hours every night.

Living with insomnia is not only distressing but has real, serious implications for your health and wellbeing. Chronically sleep-deprived people have a higher risk of developing diabetes and heart disease. A lot of counselors focus on sleep hygiene as the “cure” for insomnia, but the truth is that sleep hygiene isn’t enough. Together, we will go beyond sleep hygiene to help you sleep well again.
