DO YOU HAVE... INSOMNIA, SLEEP SCHEDULE PROBLEMS, NIGHTMARES,
OR DIFFICULTY SLEEPING WITH A C-PAP?

 

 

 

Children (18 months +) and adolescents

Is your child or teen having trouble

  • Falling or staying asleep?
  • Getting enough sleep?
  • sleeping independently or in their own room?
  • Getting up for school or other activities in the morning due to being up too late?

Good sleep is essential for your child’s emotional and physical health, school performance and general wellbeing. Dr. Evans is very experienced working with child and teen sleep problems.  If you have concerns about your child or teenager’s sleep, Dr. Evans will assess their sleep issues, and determine what is interfering with good sleep. She will then develop an individualized sleep plan for your child or teen and work with you to implement this plan. 

Stress, worry and anxiety can often be a part of sleep problems and if present, therapy will address these as well. 

ADULTS

Are you having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or getting enough sleep?  
Do you take sleeping pills but still don’t sleep well?  Has adjusting to a CPAP machine for your sleep apnea been a struggle?  These issues may be interfering with your quality of life. Sleeping well is one of the best things you can do for both your physical and emotional health.  

Dr. Evans is Board Certified and a Diplomate in Behavioral Sleep Medicine and highly experienced in providing sleep therapy to adults and seniors.  These are some of the issues she can help with:

  • Insomnia and not getting enough sleep
  • Going to bed too early or too late
  • Adjusting to shift-work schedules
  • Being comfortable wearing a CPAP
  • Nightmares  

She can also evaluate and help determine if there is a need for an overnight sleep study. She is able to assist in the process of tapering off of sleep medications under the guidance of your physician in conjunction with sleep therapy.

Sleep concerns and anxiety are common bedfellows.  If stress and anxiety are interfering with your sleep, we will work to resolve these as well.

 

 

HOW DOES ONLINE THERAPY FOR SLEEP PROBLEMS WORK?

We will start with an assessment to gather information and identify the sleep problems you, your child or teen are having and figure out what is interfering with your ability to get a good nights’ sleep.    We will then develop an individualized  sleep plan that is non-pharmacological, safe and highly effective, designed to address your specific sleep issues.  

Dr. Evans utilizes evidence–based cognitive–behavioral therapy along with relaxation and mindfulness strategies.   For uncomplicated insomnia, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT-i) is usually completed within 4-6 therapy visits. 

Sleep concerns and anxiety are common bedfellows.  If anxiety is interfering with your sleep, we will work to resolve this as well.
