What Are Sleep Disorders?

Sleep disorders are conditions that affect the quality, timing, and duration of sleep. They can be caused by a range of factors, including stress, anxiety, depression, medication, lifestyle habits, and underlying medical conditions. Sleep disorders can lead to a range of health problems, including fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, and mood disturbances.

Common Sleep Disorders

We specialize in treating the following sleep disorders:

  • Insomnia: Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder, affecting about 30% of adults. It is characterized by difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early. Insomnia can be acute, lasting for a few days to a few weeks, or chronic, lasting for months or even years.
  • Narcolepsy: Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness, sudden sleep attacks, and disrupted sleep patterns, which can significantly impact daily functioning and overall quality of life.
  • Restless Leg Syndrome: Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a neurological disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, often accompanied by tingling or crawling sensations.
  • Parasomnias (Night Terrors/Nightmares): Parasomnias are sleep disorders that involve abnormal behaviors, emotions, or experiences during sleep, such as intense fear or vivid, disturbing dreams.
  • Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder: Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder (CRSD) is a group of sleep disorders characterized by a misalignment between an individual's internal body clock and the external cues that regulate the sleep-wake cycle.

Our Treatment and Therapy for Sleep Disorders

We understand that living with a sleep disorder can be frustrating and exhausting. That's why we offer a comprehensive approach to sleep disorders treatment that addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of sleep. Our team of sleep disorder specialists includes licensed psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists across Chicagoland who will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

Our therapy for sleep disorders approach includes the following components:

  1. Sleep Hygiene Education: We will teach you about healthy sleep habits and lifestyle changes that can improve the quality and quantity of your sleep. This may include things like avoiding caffeine and alcohol, establishing a regular sleep schedule, and creating a sleep-conducive environment.
  2. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I): CBT-I is a proven, evidence-based treatment for sleep disorders that helps you identify and change negative thoughts and behaviors interfering with your sleep. It includes techniques like sleep restriction, stimulus control, and relaxation training.
  3. Medication Management: In some cases, medication may be necessary to manage sleep disorders. Our team of psychiatrists will work with you to determine if medication is an appropriate part of your treatment plan and will monitor your progress to ensure the medication is effective and safe.
  4. Sleep Study Referral: If we suspect that you have sleep apnea or another sleep-related breathing disorder, we may refer you for a sleep study. A sleep study is a non-invasive test that measures various aspects of your sleep, including breathing, heart rate, and brain activity. The results of the sleep study can help us diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.
