Millions of Americans suffer from a sleep disorder that disrupts their lives. Insomnia is the most common diagnosis. Poor sleep undermines our our mood, productivity, creativity, memory, and health. Most people don’t know that there are treatments that can help get your sleep back on track and get you feeling like yourself again. And, these treatments do NOT require medications!
Behavioral Sleep Medicine is the assessment and treatment of sleep disorders using behavioral interventions. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is the gold standard treatment for insomnia. CBT-I begins with a thorough assessment of sleep difficulties and patterns. The insomnia sufferer then learns techniques and behavioral changes to improve sleep, while also working to lessen the detrimental effects of thoughts and worries. For individuals who follow the behavioral recommendations, changes can be seen in just a few weeks and are long lasting.
