Me Only Better

IMAGINE A LIFE WHERE YOU SLEEP WELL EVERY NIGHT!

You are only 6 weeks away from permanently saying GOODBYE TO INSOMNIA!

Do you Struggle with Insomnia?

  • Does it take you more than 30 minutes to fall asleep at night?
  • Do you wake frequently throughout the night?
  • Do you have trouble falling back asleep after you wake up?
  • Do you wake up earlier than you want?
  • Are you tired and moody throughout the day?

If you said yes to at least one of these questions, then you’re likely struggling with insomnia. You may have tried all sorts of options and pills, and nothing has cured it. But there is an answer: CBT-I- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia!

WHY CBT-I?
CBT-I has been endorsed by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the National Institute of Health as the treatment of choice for insomnia! Why? Because it works! And unlike sleeping pills, there are so side effects. No more waking up in a drowsy fog! CBT-I treats the actual cause of insomnia instead of masking the symptoms.

75% of insomniacs significantly improve sleep with CBT-I
The majority of insomniacs become normal sleepers with CBT-I
85-90% of insomniacs reduce or eliminate sleeping pills after CBT-I
CBT-I has been proven more effective and safer than sleeping pills

CBT-I is the front -line treatment for insomnia because it helps you identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that are keeping you up at night. It then helps you change those thoughts and behaviors to ones that actually promote sleep!

WHAT TO EXPECT

CBT-I includes 1 initial individual assessment and 5 individual or group treatment sessions over a 6 week period. Sessions will focus on relevant areas to help change your sleep thoughts and behaviors, including:

• Sleep education
• Thought restructuring
• Medication tapering
• Sleep scheduling
• Stimulus control techniques
• Developing a Relaxation Response
• Sleep Hygiene

In the 6-week program, you will receive a copy of a book to use as an adjunct in the program. The program also includes the completion of daily sleep diaries and weekly progress reports.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does it take?

The first step is an initial individual assessment which takes about an hour. After that, there are 5 group or individual sessions over the next 6 weeks.

What if I am currently taking sleeping pills?

That is fine. Part of the program includes a process to help you gradually taper down your dosage in a way that you will be comfortable with.

What are the benefits of doing this in a group format?

Group treatment is just as effective as individual treatment. Many people find immense value in hearing from others that are dealing with the same sleep difficulties and help and support each other throughout the process. Group sessions are also a lower cost option.

What are the benefits of doing video sessions?

Video allows you to attend your treatment sessions remotely from anywhere. It also reduces the time constraints involved in weekly sessions by eliminating travel time. Both individual and group sessions done via video are still completely confidential and HIPAA compliant.

What if I can’t attend some of the group sessions?

Since each session builds on the ideas and skills developed in the previous session, attendance at all sessions is required. If you are unable to attend one of the group sessions, you can make it up in the same week with an individual session. You will be responsible for any difference in cost.

How much does it cost? Will my insurance pay for it?

The full program for individual sessions is $1150. The full program for group sessions is $675. If you have a PPO plan, your health insurance should offer some type of coverage for sleep disorder treatment. Double-check with your insurance provider and ask them how much they reimburse for out-of-network mental health treatment for primary insomnia. I can provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
