Therapy for Insomnia
Do you struggle with sleep? Is it hard to fall asleep, stay asleep, or wake feeling refreshed? Sleep issues, though common, can easily disrupt our entire lives. If you work with me you will learn all about sleep and common sleep myths as well as how to use your environment to your advantage, reduce racing thoughts at night, improve your bedtime routine, and get your best sleep possible.
Sleep is so essential yet can be so elusive. Whether you've woken up (AGAIN) at 3 am or aren't falling asleep until then, sleep disruptions can really wreck havoc on our day-to-day lives. If your sleep (or lack of it) is causing you distress and difficulty during your waking hours and occurs at least 3 nights a week every week for 3 months then you might have a sleep disorder called insomnia. Whether or not you meet full criteria, therapy can help you sleep more deeply, consistently, and restfully without medication.
For significant or chronic insomnia, I provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) which focuses on re-training the body and the brain to sleep more efficiently so you spend more time in bed sleeping rather than restlessly trying to fall asleep.
