Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders affect millions of people each year. The use of over-the-counter and prescription medications to address sleep problems has risen significantly in recent years. However, dependency on these sleep aides creates additional problems and their effectiveness decreases with prolonged use.

Although the occasional sleepless night is not usually a cause for concern, a pattern of disrupted sleep or insomnia can be very damaging physically and psychologically. Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, and frequent wakings during the night can all be symptoms of a sleep disorder. Without adequate sleep, our bodies and minds don't restore themselves. Physically we feel sluggish and our thinking becomes dulled. Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy is very effective in addressing sleep problems. Learning strategies you can employ to help yourself to get a good night's sleep can help restore your body's own sleep mechanism and break a dependency on medication.

Our licensed psychologists have extensive experience assisting people in overcoming their problems with sleep in a timely fashion. Don't wait another day, call or e-mail us now to set up an appointment. You'll be glad you took this step towards having healthier more restful sleep.
