Hi, I’m Dr. Cabrera. I specialize in helping working women who are struggling with anxiety and depression. Too many women experience waves of sadness, racing thoughts that seem uncontrollable, and disrupted sleep. On top of that, some may feel a sense of isolation and loneliness or the overwhelming sensation that they can't cope with the challenges of the day. These emotions are frequently linked to anxiety and depression. The encouraging news, however, is that you don’t have to keep living perpetually trapped by these feelings. There is effective treatment available!

This includes depression, anxiety, hair pulling, skin picking, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, feelings of overwhelm, health conditions, physical symptoms, problems with sleep or eating, and significant life events and transitions.
I provide support and guidance to people who want to reduce their stress, struggle and reactivity so that they can be their best selves in life and in relationship with themselves and with others. I emphasize holistic approaches that increase self-awareness and change unhelpful habits. Depending on your needs and goals, our work together is likely to uncover old, limiting patterns and beliefs and to involve a compassionate exploration and reworking of these things. This collaborative process occurs within a framework of mindfulness, psychodynamic psychology, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I firmly believe in a person's innate ability for healing and change.

The world is ever changing but mentally we are not always prepared for what is asked of us which causes people to question themselves and their abilities. We all have self-correcting systems in our bodies, but these systems need more specific information than the body provides alone.

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.
