sleep

How's your sleep?

Night after night, you lay awake, wondering if tonight will be like the others. 

You're sluggish. And desperately tired.  

There is almost nothing worse than laying awake at night, knowing you're going to feel absolutely awful in them morning, wondering if you'll ever feel rested again.

The single best thing you can do for your mental health is to improve your sleep.  And here's some good news: There is a way to retrain your brain.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi) may be able to help you. It works, without medications, and improves sleep in most people who try it.  In fact, it is the most efficacious health-related therapy there is.  


It's normal for people to have problems sleeping now and again. In fact, once or twice per week people normally might not get all the sleep they need. 

However, if your sleep problem has occured at least 3 nights per week, is significantly impacting your quality of life, and your primary care doctor has ruled out other problems such as sleep apnea or narcolepsy, I may be able to get help.

You and I will work together to clearly identify the behaviors that are interfering with your ability to sleep, and we'll work together to make a plan for you.  

Even if this isn't first reason you come, it's the first thing I'll ask about; the easiest lifestyle changes to make related to anxiety are improving sleep and aerobic exercise.  So I'll be asking you, how's your sleep?


Get some rest.
