Insomnia & Anxiety

Are you having repeated trouble falling asleep, or waking up in the middle of the night for hours, or waking up way too early? If so, you may have the sleep disorder Insomnia. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).

Sometimes, our Anxiety is what is keeping us up and not necessarily a sleep disorder. Common symptoms of anxiety include inability to relax, feeling scared, fear of loosing control, shortness of breath and more. There are several types of anxiety conditions,  obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is usually considered an anxiety disorder.

If you think you may have a sleep or anxiety disorder, I can help. We would begin with a diagnostic assessment, I have specific protocols for insomnia, generalized anxiety, social anxiety and/or OCD depending on your needs.

For anxiety disorders, I utilize an integration of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and mindfulness.
