"I help adults who are too hard on themselves, especially parents and people in pain. Do you feel like you "should" be doing things better? Do you feel guilty when you take time for yourself? Do you have mixed feelings about parenthood or your career? Learning how to treat ourselves with compassion, accepting negative emotions (which may manifest in pain) and attending to them, and balancing the needs of others with our own, is something many of us have to learn as adults. These are areas I help my clients with daily. You don't need to struggle with these issues alone. "

"Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far."

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in 94596 from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing.
