Insomnia

Insomnia is defined by difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or early morning wakening.  It is a common problem, with half of adults experiencing it in their lifetime.  It negatively affects mood, work and relationships and can become a vicious cycle where the person dreads going to bed at night, making falling asleep even more difficult. There is cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia that uses a step-by-step approach proven to improve your sleep without the use of medication.  This treatment includes:

  • using relaxation and stress reduction techniques
  • teaching you to quiet your mind and body
  • establishing behavioral techniques that dramatically improve sleep
