I have been helping people to overcome insomnia with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in St. Louis, MO for some years now. I was asked by a physician of sleep medicine to train in this protocol.and to subsequently provide CBT-I for his patients in my private practice. After completing CBT-I training, I have gone on to provide treatment for Insomnia to many people, also calling on my over 30 years as a private practitioner of psychotherapy. Statistics show that CBT-I is highly effective for the treatment of insomnia, and I have found that to be true in my use of CBT-I in my own practice. I am taking new patients and I would be glad to help individuals who have trouble with sleep. My program is usually a five session program. 

My passion is to help you to get a full night's sleep without medication. I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of men and women to change their lives in the last 30 years. One of my speciaties in Private Practice is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). I use CBT-I very successfully in my practice to help people to regularly sleep through the night without medication. I know how much you suffer when you can't sleep long enough or regularly enough. I see how scary and frustrated Insomnia is. With CBT-I I help people to: clarify misinformation about sleep; learn positive sleep behaviors that promote sleep; reexamine how you think and feel about sleep; and learn how to prevent relapse to Insomnia. I have found my program to be highly successful with my patients. I individualize my program for you usually lasting from 3 to 5 sessions. I know how bad it feels not to be able to fall asleep or stay asleep. I see how scary and frustrating it is when you can't get a full night's sleep. I see that most people would prefer not to take sleep medication in order to feel rested. I am licensed in Missouri (LCSW) to provide Counseling and Psychotherapy. I earned my Master's in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. I worked as a Counselor for Community Mental Health agencies for nine years before entering private practice. I am a Founding Member of my national membership organization. I love helping people achieve the benefits that I have found in Counseling and Psychotherapy. I truly believe that an investment in Psychotherapy pays dividends for a lifetime.
