Sleep Disorders

193446176Sleep is the foundation of health.

When you’re not getting good sleep, it affects everything.

It’s harder to focus at work.

Everyone and everything gets on your nerves.

Preparing food sounds exhausting.

Exercise goes out the window.

You’re yawning and bleary-eyed all day, but your mind wakes up as soon as bedtime rolls around. You know how that vicious cycle goes.

It becomes harder to be fully present in relationships, at work, and in your daily activities. All you want to do is get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed, but that feels so far out of reach when exhaustion and frustration are ever-present.

You know your sleep issues have contributed to lost career opportunities and hindered you from living life to the fullest.

A variety of sleep-related concerns…

… bring clients to us.

These include insomnia, hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness), restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders, and bedtime procrastination.

Some people don’t have a specific sleep problem, but they want to learn how to optimize their sleep quality to maximize their overall wellness and performance at work.

1917162575It’s more than sleep hygiene.

Most people have heard of “sleep hygiene” and tried lots of things to improve it, like reducing caffeine or keeping their bedroom dark and cool.

While good sleep hygiene can be helpful, it’s not enough if you’re struggling with ongoing sleep issues. It can even become a source of stress because you feel like you’re trying everything and nothing’s working.

The great paradox of sleep is that the harder you try, the more elusive it becomes.

The right approach makes all the difference.

Whether you’re having trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing excessive daytime sleepiness, we’re here to help.

At Pacific Integrative Psychiatry, we look under the hood to look holistically at what’s going on with your sleep: medical issues, lab testing, nutrition, sleep disorders, behavior and lifestyle, and psychological factors could be playing a role.

Sometimes, we’ll recommend doing a sleep study. If that’s right for you, we’ll collaborate with your sleep clinic to ensure you’re getting results.

We also have a self-guided online sleep course called “The Holistic Sleep Reset” that you can take while working with us.

Many patients come to us because they were prescribed hypnotics or benzodiazepines like Ambien or Klonopin and want to taper off them.

We aim to reduce your need for sleeping pills and help you find healthier, more sustainable ways to achieve restful sleep.

“I’m grateful that some gradual small changes nudged me toward a sleep pattern that works for me. I’m happy that the treatment didn’t seem as drastic as I thought it would be, because my sleep problems felt so drastic to begin with. Small changes had big results! I’m really grateful.”
