Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Orma, a California-licensed clinical psychologist and mental health expert specializing in the treatment of insomnia.
Not being able to sleep creates immense challenges in every area of your life. Having seen hundreds of people struggle with sleep problems—and overcoming insomnia myself—motivated me to in-depth study and research the most effective solution.
I've been successfully implementing CBTi for the past seven years with my clients .

I utilize cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness in my treatment with clients. I have been treating clients with CBT-I for chronic insomnia since 2008 with a lot of client success. My therapy sessions are often experiential and behavioural and involve creating goals, providing you with education and teaching you real skills that we practice right in session. Often you will leave with something to practice before your next session as well. Sessions are collaborative and our aim is always getting you closer to the life you want to be living!
I offer psychological assessment services for children, adolescents, and adults. Assessments are used to identify if your child is eligible for gifted programming or an educational plan for a learning disorder, attention deficit or an emotional need, such as anxiety. Teachers, therapists, and physicians often use the report findings in order to target interventions and create a plan to support the child at school and home.
