My goal is to help you sleep and feel better soon. Treatment for insomnia can help improve your mood, your quality of life, and your sense of well-being. I use CBT-I, the "gold standard" for insomnia treatment, to insure that you get the best care available. Most of my patients see significant improvements in their sleep quality within four to five sessions of beginning treatment. If you suffer from insomnia, and would like to decrease or stop your use of sleeping pills, I can help you find effective, drug-free relief.

I also provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, an effective approach to improve quality and quantity of sleep.
My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, empathic, and oriented toward achieving the results my clients desire. I provide skills to increase awareness of problematic patterns that can lead to feeling stuck. Left unaddressed, these patterns can take a toll on relationships, work, health, and self-esteem. My goal is to create a non-judgmental and supportive space for exploration and change and to help people get back to living a more meaningful and enjoyable life. In addition, I emphasize a "strength-based" approach, in which I help clients identify and build from strengths and other positive qualities they already have.

People come to therapy for many reasons, including feeling stuck, seeking relief from emotional distress, needing support adjusting to a new life circumstance, and to develop a better understanding of themselves. They may also be interested in learning new coping skills and new ways of responding to life stressors. During therapy, we will explore unhelpful patterns by looking at the connection between your thoughts, behaviors and emotions as well as the ways in which these things are moving you towards or away from your goals and values.

One conundrum of being human is that our logical minds don't sync up with our feelings and thoughts. That can leave us feeling trapped in cycles of experience we never chose and don't understand. What we call "symptoms" (anxiety, stress, insomnia, reactivity, depression, etc.) are really just teachers that we don't yet know how to listen to. I'll work with you to transform your symptoms into meaningful and lasting change.

Sleep or Insomnia Therapists
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Oakland 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. But Sleep specialists in Oakland or therapists who specialize in sleep in Oakland, or simply a Oakland sleep therapist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Oakland or therapists who specialize in insomnia in Oakland, or simply an Oakland insomnia therapist, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.
