How many times did you hit the snooze button this morning? We all crave sleep, but too many nights we fall short of the seven or eight hours we need to thrive. An estimated 50 to 70 million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder, according to the Institute of Medicine. Sleep is vital to our health, safety, and overall well-being. Sleeping difficulties are often connected to underlying problems such as stress, depression, or anxiety. Psychologists can help people identify stressors and behaviors that may be disturbing sleep. They can help change those behaviors, and manage the thoughts, feelings and emotions that can interfere with a healthy night's sleep.
