To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

I offer convenient evening and weekend appointments. We are all capable of making changes. Setting small goals can lead to larger life improvements. I have had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life and have seen amazing growth and change over my 12+ years of practicing as a clinical social worker. If we do nothing to make change, life stays the same, with the same problems. It takes courage to look at ourselves and work on the things that drag us down. Together we'll build on your strengths to help meet your goals.

Our lives can be busy and filled with daily stress. Sometimes this stress leads us to believe we made the wrong choices when it comes to our relationships, career, etc. Sometimes we begin to doubt our capabilities and we compare our performance to what we see in others or in the media. During times of stress, we can develop unhealthy coping styles. We may begin to isolate, push people away, or make impulsive decisions about our lives. When individuals have additional stressors, these feelings may only become worse.

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Des Moines 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 Des Moines or therapists who specialize in sleep in Des Moines, or simply a Des Moines sleep therapist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Des Moines or therapists who specialize in insomnia in Des Moines, or simply a Des Moines insomnia therapist, can help.
