We help people overcome insomnia and related sleep problems using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)


WHAT IS CBT-I

Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is a structured program that helps you identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that cause or worsen sleep problems with new habits that promote sound sleep. Unlike sleeping pills, CBT-I is effective long-term because it helps you address the underlying causes of your sleep problems.

CBT-I is a good choice if you have long-term sleep problems, you're worried about becoming dependent on sleep medications, or if medications are no longer effective or cause unwanted side effects.

Unlike pills, CBT-I addresses the underlying causes of insomnia rather than just relieving symptoms. 

Sleeping pills don’t cure insomnia because they don’t treat the causes of insomnia.
— Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs, Ph.D.

How Does it Work

The CBT-I program consists of 5 sessions over a 6 week period with homework between sessions, in group or individual settings.The program begins with an individual sleep assessment so both client and coach have a clear understanding of the sleep problem and a baseline prior to start of the program. We provide between-session email support for all of our clients.

We work with people individually or in groups. Throughout the year we offer public workshops in different cities around the country. Send us a note if you'd like to see a workshop in your area.
