Is being awake when you should be sleeping causing you to sleep when you should be awake?

At any given time, about 40 percent of people report suffering from insomnia. 

Insomnia is usually the result of a combination of things.

In counseling, we will work together to identify behaviors that perpetuate your insomnia. If your night-time wakefulness is also being treated by a physician for underlying health concerns, such as chronic obstructive sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome,  this treatment will be an effective counterpart in helping you obtain a restful night's sleep.

A six to eight-session treatment called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, these are the topics you will address: 

  • Session 1: Sleep Schedules and Bedtime Routines 
  • Session 2: Progressive Muscle Relaxation
  • Session 3: Facing the Nightmare and Changing It
  • Session 4: Trouble Shooting
  • Session 5: Targeting Nightmares and Sleep Hygiene, and
  • Session 6: Putting It Together and Planning for the Future
