Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a short-term, solution-focused approach that can help you overcome insomnia with cognitive and behavioral strategies that have been proven effective at improving sleep without or with reduced use of sleep medication.
Insomnia is one of the most commonly reported health complaints among American adults: about 1/3 of us experience difficulty falling or staying asleep. Poor sleep can negatively impact mood, relationships, and job performance. While you can’t work harder to force yourself to sleep, you can work smarter.
Working with a psychologist who specializes in CBT-I will help you understand how your thoughts and perceptions about sleep affect your actual ability to fall and stay asleep, how to reframe your thoughts and beliefs about your sleep and sleep-related struggles, and how to optimize your sleep habits for longer, deeper, better sleep. You will also learn how daily stressors and even medical conditions can impact your sleep and learn coping strategies.
