Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia in Adults

CBTI (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia) is a research based, structured technique with proven results. In some cases it has been shown to be more effective than medication, and has longer lasting results. During treatment we will discover how you think about sleep, and how these thoughts affect your feelings and sleep habits. You will also learn how to change your sleep habits and behaviors to help you sleep. The initial evaluation will last 90 minutes. You will be asked to keep a sleep journal at home and bring it with you each week for review. In some cases we may be able to to this electronically. Therapy will last from 8-15 sessions depending on how long you have had insomnia, treatment compliance, and if you are currently taking sleep medication.
