Insomnia Treatment services offered in Phoenix, AZ

Everyone occasionally has a hard time falling asleep. But when it becomes a recurring problem, and you drag yourself through the day, it’s time to seek help for insomnia. At Peak Mental Health we specialize in the gold standard of treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), and also provides other treatments that restore your sleep. 

  • Have a hard time falling asleep
  • Wake frequently during the night
  • Can’t get back to sleep after waking
  • Wake up early and can’t get back to sleep
 
    You can have short-term insomnia that lasts a few days or weeks. Or you could develop chronic insomnia, which goes on for a month or longer.
You won’t be surprised to learn that lack of sleep significantly impacts on your ability to function during the day. As a result, insomnia also causes daytime symptoms, such as:
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Poor attention
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Hyperactivity
  • Aggressiveness
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Poor performance at work or school
  Insomnia also increases your risk of making careless mistakes and having a car accident if you fall asleep behind the wheel. Your risk of developing chronic health conditions also increases. Insomnia is associated with high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity.

Short-term insomnia is often associated with the stress you face in daily life. You may have problems on the job, a sick family member, a relationship that’s on the rocks, or money problems.

You could also have habits that affect your sleep. Consuming caffeine late in the day, drinking alcohol close to bedtime, and light from the TV and computer can all disrupt your sleep.

Causes of chronic insomnia may be medications or underlying health conditions, such as:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Heart failure
  • Chronic pain
  • Restless legs syndrome

 

There’s also a two-way relationship between mental health disorders and insomnia. Lack of sleep significantly increases your risk of developing mental health conditions.
 
At the same time, having a psychiatric disorder often causes insomnia. Half of all cases of insomnia are associated with depression, stress, and anxiety.

We specialize in CBT-I, the first line of recommended insomnia treatment. CBT-I can also help you overcome behavioral and psychological issues associated with other sleep disorders.

In addition to CBT-I, your mental health professional may provide other treatments that improve insomnia, including:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Medication management
  • Relaxation or meditation
  • Stress management
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Plan to improve sleep habits

Consistently following a calming nighttime routine and unplugging from electronics helps many people get a better night’s sleep.
