Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

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

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

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