As a clinician, I am passionate about empowering you to meet your own specific goals. My counseling is based on the premise that people have an intrinsic ability to improve and grow when provided with the appropriate tools and experiences. These tools can be refined, learned, and practiced in therapy. While I work with a wide array of issues, I most commonly help people through difficult life transitions, grief and loss, and symptoms of anxiety and depression. I also have a background and specialization in the treatment of addictions and insomnia.

The anxieties and worries that constantly invade our mind can be incredibly difficult to live with. We often respond to this by either trying to be superficially positive and “pushing through” or we become regularly overwhelmed by waves of anxiety, panic and chronic stress. If you’ve gotten to a point where the frustration and anguish of anxiety, disruption of sleep and ineffective ways of dealing with those things have reached a crisis point, let’s work together on coming up with new, more effective responses that can tangibly change and improve your life in an ongoing and ultimately fulfilling way.

In addition to therapy intensives, I also teach online classes to help improve sleep using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) techniques.
Are you feeling stuck in the past and unable to move forward? Are you wanting to delve deeper into healing from a trauma event or upcoming stressful life event? Do you feel stuck and wish you were making faster progress than you have been from going to weekly psychotherapy sessions? In my experience, 3-4 hour therapy intensive sessions accelerate progress in a shorter period of time for faster trauma resolution. Healing can occur in a few days of therapy intensive sessions rather than over years of weekly sessions. The only openings I have at this time are for therapy intensive sessions and in my online CBT-I Insomnia class.

Sleep or Insomnia Therapists

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
