Sleep Therapy in Las Vegas & Summerlin

Get your sleep right

Get Started

Adults have trouble sleeping, too. If you aren’t sleeping when you want to sleep or you wake up still feeling exhausted, I can help with proven sleep therapy techniques. Sleep affects your mental, emotional and physical well-being as well. When we sleep better, we ARE better. And our main goal is to help people in the Las Vegas area get better sleep!

If you struggle with sleep, you are not alone! Over 60% of Americans report difficulty with sleep a few nights a week or more. And 80% of individuals with a mental health diagnosis have underlying sleep issues. What does this mean? Sleep loss has a MASSIVE impact on your emotional and mental health and well-being, not just your physical health. Adequate sleep is essential to mental and emotional regulation. During sleep, the brain creates new pathways, processes information, and regenerates the brain and body.

Research has linked inadequate sleep to a myriad of issues, including: depression, anxiety, PTSD symptoms, post-partum depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, obesity, emotional dysregulation, health complications and more. So yeah, sleep is important.

Sleep is the best meditation

How Does Sleep Therapy Work?

To start sleep therapy, we first do a comprehensive sleep assessment to figure out what your specific problems are, and then if you are a candidate for CBT-I, we do that. CBT-I is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy specifically designed and researched for the treatment of insomnia. According to the APA, “In clinical settings, CBT-I has a 70-80 percent success rate for helping those who suffer from chronic insomnia. Almost one third of people with insomnia achieve normal sleep and most reduce their symptoms by 50 percent and sleep an extra 45-60 minutes a night.” According to many studies, CBT-I is more effective and longer lasting than sleeping pills.

If you’re not a good fit for CBT-I then we look at other treatment options. Getting a sleep study might be a next step to confirm or rule out sleep apnea, a problem with disrupted breathing during sleep. We’ll also give you customized behavioral modifications (think sleep hygiene) to work on, and give you tools to shut off anxiety, to do lists and racing thoughts right before bed.

Rest and be thankful

Chrissy lawler therapist in las vegas

Hi, I’m Christine Lawler.

I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I’ve been practicing therapy for almost 13 years. I have an amazing husband who I’ve been married to for 12 years, and we’ve got four darling little girls.
 

I’m a big believer that therapist fit is really important. Too many people give up on counseling in general because they had a poor fit with a therapist and decided counseling didn’t work. Counseling DOES work, but the therapist/client match-up is important. You want to work with someone whose personality you can jive with, and you need to believe that your therapist can actually help you. So, I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and what sets me apart, and you can decide if I sound like the right fit for you:

I graduated from Brigham Young University, the #1 Marriage and Family Therapy program in the country. I’m not saying this to brag, only to confidently report that my education was top notch. We were constantly taught how important it is to be a fantastic therapist, because unfortunately, unskilled therapists can do more harm than good and often clients have no way of discerning. I was also taught that having a good foundational background is important, but what I do after graduation to hone my skills is what will set me apart. Because of this, I have thrown myself into reading and taking continuing education courses from the leaders in the field. I’m a critical consumer of information and I make sure that everything I do is grounded in theory.

Hi, I’m Leslie Frederick.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have long had a passion for helping and serving others.

I began my career as a social worker for a local hospice.  I found great purpose in helping families navigate the unpredictable twists and turns that undoubtedly come along with the end of life for their loved ones.  After many years in hospice, I transitioned to a medical social work position in a hospital, which then led me to a Clinical Social Work Intern position in an inpatient psych hospital.  During this time, I enjoyed working with a range of individuals and families.  The vast array of cases I encountered in the hospital allowed me to gain the experience and skills needed to serve a multitude of clients.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and believe in meeting a client where they are at in order to tailor treatment to meet their individualized needs and work towards their specific goals.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Northern Arizona University and a Masters in Social Work from UNLV. I am originally from Northwest Indiana and have lived in Las Vegas for over ten years with my husband and our three children. We love living out west and enjoy spending time traveling and exploring our neighboring states.
