Sleep Issues

Sleep Issues

How would your life be different if you accomplish these goals?

  • Having a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Waking up too early
  • Feeling tired because of a poor night’s sleep
  • Being unable to stop thinking in bed
  • Worrying about not sleeping enough to be productive
  • Feeling restless or anxious in bed

Does This Sound Familiar?

Sleep difficulties and insomnia can make it challenging to feel focused and productive. Worrying about sleep also tends to make it even harder to fall asleep. Spending hours at night without sleep can lead to feeling stress, anxiety, or feeling overwhelmed.

I trust everyone. I trust them to do what they do.  Byron Katie

Not sleeping enough can lead to negative emotions and vice-versa, so a cycle of non-productive thinking and uncomfortable feelings reinforce one another. This pattern can spin out of control so that the body begins to feel high-strung, which makes it even harder to relax emotionally and let go of worry. Many people experience trouble with sleep or insomnia at different times throughout their lives, sometimes as a result of a change in life circumstances or behavior.

Here Is How Counseling Can Help

Fortunately, counseling can help you learn tools to sleep well again. As a therapist since 2006, including five years at college counseling centers, I have helped clients learn how to think, feel, and act differently so that they feel relaxed in bed, which is a precursor to falling and staying asleep. My approach utilizes evidence-based practices that combine cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness treatment. CBT can show you how to become more aware of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that reinforce sleeplessness in order to replace them with more supportive patterns of thinking and behavior. Mindfulness counseling offers tools to help you feel emotionally and physically grounded both throughout the day and at night in bed.

My methods are simple to learn and easy to apply on your own right away. These techniques will help you both in the short-run for sleeping well now and in the long-run, so you can respond to new challenges in ways that support you emotionally, mentally, and physically.
