Specializing in Treatment of Insomnia

 

Are you having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking early and not being able to get back to sleep? Are you dependent on medication to sleep and want to reduce or stop using these medications?  If so, you are not alone. Approximately half of all adults in the US report problems with sleep and 20% meet diagnostic criteria for insomnia. 

Fortunately, an effective treatment for insomnia exists. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a short-term evidence-based treatment for chronic insomnia. CBT-I is the gold standard treatment for insomnia and highly efficacious. While participating in CBT-I, you can expect to learn more about how insomnia develops over times, how behavior and thought patterns contribute to insomnia, and how to get your problems with sleep back under control. A typical course of treatment often involves changing your sleep schedule (at least temporarily), learning behavioral strategies to associate being in bed with being asleep, learning relaxation strategies, developing a helpful bedtime and wake up routine, changing unhelpful thought patterns related to sleep, and improving sleep hygiene.

I also routinely help clients decrease use of medications they use to help them sleep. In these situations, I will help you sleep as well as possible on your current medication(s) and then work with you and your prescriber to develop a plan to slowly taper off the medication(s). Clients I work with are often amazed that they are able to stop using medications they thought they would have to use for the rest of their lives.

 

Therapy Rates and Insurance

Intake Appointment: My current rate is $175 for an approximately 60 minute intake appointment. At this appointment, I will spend most of the session getting to know you and the specifics of what you are seeking help for. At the end of the appointment, I will provide you with an overview of what your treatment plan will entail. You can schedule an intake appointment by clicking here.

 

Follow up Therapy Appointments: Follow up therapy appointments are billed at a rate of $150 for a 45-50 minute therapy session. I meet with most patients weekly or bi-weekly during the active phase of treatment though am happy to see clients at less regular intervals. A typical course of treatment for insomnia consists of about 6 therapy sessions. You can schedule a follow up appointment by clicking here.

Payment Methods: I accept cash, check, FSA or HSA debit cards and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover). 

Insurance: I am currently not an “in-network” provider for insurance companies.  However,  clients may be able to list me as an “out-of-network” provider.  Clients using this approach pay for sessions and then receive reimbursement for therapy services directly from their insurance companies.  Because policies differ so widely, you should contact your insurance company directly to determine whether this is an option for you.  If you would like to use insurance in this manner, I will provide you with monthly billing statements that can be directly submitted to your insurance company.  Please feel free to ask more questions about this issue during our initial conversation.  

Telehealth: At this time, services I provide will be conducted via Telehealth. If you are uncomfortable with telephone or video visits, please let me know and we can discuss other potential options. I provide a free consultation over Telehealth so you can see if this could work for you.
