Having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night? If so, I can help! Not sleeping well is often a symptom of other underlying issues. As a Certified Integrative Adult Sleep Coach and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) clinician, I will work with you to figure out what those other issues are, if you don’t already know.

CBT-I is now considered the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia due to its superior long-term efficacy, lack of side effects, and patient preference compared to sedative-hypnotics, which are associated with significant side effects and risks. I realize that many clients are already taking sleeping pills, and while they want to stop taking them, they’re very fearful of what their sleep will look like if they do that. Don’t worry, we would work together to improve your sleep while slowly decreasing your need for pills (with your doctor’s approval). There’s nothing drastic about my program, so you can put your fear aside!

I will “shine a light” on your problem areas, provide information to further explain how and why you are not sleeping your best. We will discuss the “Wheel of Health” you see to your right, and I will explain how things such as diet, exercise, stress, anxiety, relationships, being a parent, etc all affect your sleep. I will provide you with attainable action steps each week for a series of 4, 6, or 8 weeks so that you can reach your goals at a speed that works best for you. You will be asked to log your sleep daily so that we can review your sleep logs each week, and ensure you’re reaching your goals and seeing results. I will be your coach, cheerleader, and partner throughout the journey!
