CBT-I

Do you struggle to fall asleep even when you are extremely tired? 


Do you wake up in the middle of the night and spend hours trying to fall back to sleep? 


Do you find yourself watching the clock and calculating how many hours of potential sleep you have left as the hours tick by? 


The American College of Physicians recommends CBT-I, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, as the first line treatment  for insomnia.


  • In 3 major studies that directly compared CBT-I to sleeping pills, CBT-I was more effective. 


  • 75% of insomnia sufferers experience significantly improved sleep.


  • CBT-I is a structured program that can help you conquer insomnia and develop a healthier sleeping pattern.


Dr. O’Keefe is a certified CBT-I clinician who completed Dr. Gregg  Jacobs’ training course, which was developed and tested at Harvard Medical School.


How Does the Program Work?

This program achieves results because it is based on the idea that insomnia can only be treated effectively by addressing the underlying causes of insomnia.

  • Changing sleep thoughts and behaviors
     
  • Lifestyle habits that improve sleep
     
  • Relaxation techniques 


How Many Sessions is This Program?
 

  • An initial individual assessment
     
  • Five individual sessions over a six week period
