We all have sleepless nights sometime. Things like temporary work stress, jet-lag or too much caffeine can cause a short-term bout of insomnia that will usually resolve itself within a couple of days or weeks. People who suffer from insomnia have trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. Symptoms include not feeling well rested during the day, sleepiness, irritability, headaches, digestive problems, trouble concentrating and feelings of anxiety about sleep. When someone experiences insomnia more than three nights a week for at least a month, it can be considered chronic. Chronic insomnia can be influenced by a number of different factors such as pain, ongoing stress, depression or anxiety. A mental health professional can help you identity the root causes of your insomnia and help you find ways to improve the quality of your sleep, including behavioral and lifestyle changes.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (cbt-i) is an evidence based, six- to eight-session treatment that quite simply helps people achieve more satisfactory sleep. I have been extensively trained in this modality, and also help patients with CPAP machines increase their tolerance and improve adherence to treatment plans. You can learn the tools to sleep well without medications!
