Sleep is essential to our physical and mental health.
When we don't sleep well, it affects all aspects of our lives—work performance, concentration, memory, mood, relationships, sexual functioning, weight, physical health, and our ability to manage life's daily stresses.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the treatment of choice for most forms of insomnia. CBT has been scientifically proven to be more effective and the results are longer lasting than treatment with sleep medications such as Ambien, Lunesta, Restoril, or over-the-counter sleep aids. That’s because CBT treats the underlying causes of persistent insomnia or sleep disruption, whereas medication treats only the symptoms. When you run out of sleep medication, your symptoms return or even worsen. But when you complete CBT, you will be able to sleep better—on your own.
Dr. Kennedy provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to treat sleep disorders in adults.
This treatment is available in individual or group sessions. At your first visit, Dr. Kennedy will perform a comprehensive assessment of your sleep habits to determine whether the CBT she provides can help you. CBT for sleep disorders ranges from 6 to12 sessions in most cases.
