I’m a psychotherapist in private practice with over a decade of experience, specializing in treating anxiety and insomnia. My own struggle with insomnia led me to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), and I was my own first CBT-I patient. It worked so well that I became a CBT-I practitioner. My patients also appreciate how well CBT-I works, and how quickly.
In nearly all the patients I’ve treated for insomnia, there is a strong tendency for perfectionism. I found that enhancing core CBT-I with additional modules on mindfulness, relaxation and emotional regulation skills effectively addresses this issue.
Sleep is so fundamental to our well-being, and it can get off-balance easily. One of my greatest professional joys is when my patients report that they’re sleeping better and feeling in control of their sleep system after our course of CBT-I treatment.
