Virtual video teletherapy

Individual therapy can help with a number of issues, including sleep difficulties, anxiety, grief/loss, and gaining insight into our behaviors, our relationships, and our strengths. You can now access individual therapy from the comfort of your own home or place of business, via secure virtual video teletherapy.

During the first session, I will work with you to help develop a plan for treatment type/style and modality that best fits your needs. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Relational and Dynamic therapies, and Motivational Interviewing. We will work together in a collaborative manner to decide what is best for your treatment. The expected course of treatment is typically 5-7 sessions and can be done virtually.

If you are having difficulty sleeping, contact me about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, or CBT-I. CBT-I is a subset of general CBT and has been determined to be the gold standard in treating insomnia. It is an approved and evidence-based method that focuses on changing one's sleep habits, thoughts and perceptions about sleep, and misconceptions about sleep that perpetuate insomnia. The National Institute of Health concludes it is a safe, all-natural, and effective technique that effectively manages chronic insomnia and it's effects. CBT-i is the only scientifically proven non-drug insomnia treatment. It improves sleep in 70-80% of patients and is more effective than sleeping pills, without the side effects that sleep medications can have. For more information on CBT-I, please see the Individual Therapy & CBT-I section below.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, or CBT-i, is a subset of general CBT and has been determined to be the gold standard in treating insomnia. It is an approved and evidence-based method that focuses on changing one's sleep habits, thoughts and perceptions about sleep, and misconceptions about sleep that perpetuate insomnia. The National Institute of Health concludes it is a safe, all-natural, and effective technique that effectively manages chronic insomnia and it's effects. CBT-i is the only scientifically proven non-drug insomnia treatment. It improves sleep in 70-80% of patients and is more effective than sleeping pills, without the side effects that sleep medications can have.

CBT-i can be started while on, or off sleeping medications and individuals can come to CBT-i with goals of coming off of their sleeping medication after the treatment and/or staying on the sleeping medications after the treatment. All that is asked is that there is no change to the current medication routine while CBT-i is being conducted, to minimize any confounding elements during the behavior change program. 

An individual coming in for CBT-i can expect to attend anywhere from 1-6 weekly sessions lasting for 50 minutes. Many individuals see improvement in their sleep in the first 3 weeks.

The program includes the following:

-A comprehensive sleep assessment and interview
-Tailored and personalized sleep therapy plan
-Weekly sleep diaries completed by participant to gather data about individual sleep patterns 
-Psychoeducation around evidence-based interventions to promote healthy improvements in sleep 
-Relapse prevention plan to maintain change over time and upon completion of treatment course
-Auricular (Ear) Acupressure Bead therapy as an optional complimentary treatment to promote wellness, relaxation, and sleep
